Meeting focuses on casino jobs and vendor information

The proposed Chisholm Creek Casino Resort will host information meetings this week about the project near Mulvane and about potential job and vendor opportunities.

The meetings:

* 7 p.m. today , Memorial Auditorium, 208 N. Washington Ave., Wellington

* 7 p.m. Tuesday, Mulvane Recreation Center, 632 E. Mulvane St., Mulvane.

The state's casino review board is scheduled to decide in early December whether to move ahead with the project at the I-35 exit near Mulvane. The casino would be managed by Lakes Entertainment.

If approved, the resort is projected to open in September 2011, followed by the opening of a hotel in March 2012.
