Point Molate

Council approves another Point Molate extension

City Council voted 4-2 Tuesday to grant a developer yet another extension to file an updated proposal for the controversial hotel and casino plan. The plan is now due July 20, but meanwhile, the issue is causing a schism in a city prioritizing between jobs, morality and the environment.

‘A profound impact’

“The proposed casino project at Point Molate will have a profound impact on the landscape. The Point is not necessarily beautiful or majestic; relics of its past lay rusting and falling apart. Gates and fences restrict access.”

Council approves extension for Point Molate developer

The City Council voted Monday to extend a deadline to reach an agreement with the developer behind the Point Molate casino project. Without an extension, the city would have scrapped an agreement to earmark the land for a casino.
