Kansas City, Kansas--A $750 million casino proposal by Las Vegas Sands Corp. will have to wait for a chance for endorsement by the Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kan.
Because of an extension in a simultaneous state-level process, the planning commission won't consider the planning and zoning request as scheduled on Monday, the Unified Government said in a late Thursday release.
