The city is holding two additional public forums on the proposed resort casino development in Everett. The forums will be held Oct. 17 at 6 p.m. in the Connelly Center, 90 Chelsea St., and Oct. 19 at 10 a.m. at Pope John High School, 888 Broadway. Nevada-based Wynn Resorts is seeking a state license to build and operate the casino. The overall development calls for a 551-room hotel, a 24-hour casino, a spa and meeting space, restaurants, and retail shops on the former Monsanto site on Lower Broadway. The city signed a host agreement with Wynn Resorts in April, and in July residents in a referendum voted to support the project.
