A Pennsylvania gaming company and Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert want to build four casinos in Ohio, including one at Broadway Commons in downtown Cincinnati.
The Ohio Jobs and Growth Committee, a political action committee, submitted paperwork to the Ohio Attorney General's Office Wednesday seeking to place a constitutional amendment on the Nov. 3 ballot. It would ask voters to approve a plan to build casinos in Cincinnati, Columbus, Cleveland and Toledo in which Penn National Gaming Inc. and Gilbert would be the investors.
The petition names Broadway Commons as a Cincinnati site by describing it as a 20-acre parcel, and listing parcel numbers that would be a casino location. Broadway Commons is now a parking lot on the northeastern edge of downtown. It had discussed in the late 1990s as a possible site for a Reds' stadium before the riverfront was chosen. If petition language is approved by the attorney general, the committee would begin collecting signatures to place the issue on the statewide ballot.
