Richmond casino

The Richmond Circuit Court granted the Richmond City Council’s petition to place a referendum on the November ballot. The city voters can now vote on the Urban One Inc.-backed ONE Casino + Resort project.

It is the next step in a process that began earlier this year with the city issuing a request for proposals for a casino resort. In June, the City Council voted 8-1 to ask the Richmond Circuit Court to include a referendum on the local ballot.

If approved by voters, the proposed $562.5 million ONE Casino would then begin construction. It would be on 100 acres that the Altria Group Inc. owns on the city’s South Side near Interstate 95. It would also be the country’s only casino that the Black owns.
