    Dykema calls on casino developer to answer questions

    State Representative Carolyn Dykema (D-Holliston) has called on the developer of the proposed Milford casino to publicly address concerns about the project’s impact on Milford and the surrounding communities. Developer David Nunes met the application deadline in January, paid the $400,000 fee, and set in motion the process that will eventually determine whether his proposal is granted the single license reserved for Eastern Massachusetts. In the meantime, he has not yet met with Milford residents or people from surrounding towns to provide details of his plans. “The lack of dialogue, outreach, and substantive information by you regarding your casino proposal is of great concern,’’ Dykema wrote in a letter to Nunes. “If your proposal is indeed serious, you must engage with the local communities.” In the past, Nunes has said he wants to meet not only with Milford residents about the proposal but also with residents of neighboring communities.
