NEW CASTLE —
Endeka Entertainment has applied for permits required to develop a racetrack/casino in Mahoning Township.
The Lawrence County commissioners were notified this week by the Michael Baker Jr. engineering firm of Beaver that the new Philadelphia-based owners are applying to renew permits sought in 2008 when Centaur Gaming owned the project.
If approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, the permits will be transferred to Endeka.
These permits involve improvements to Route 422, stormwater controls on Baird Road, and controls for stormwater discharge associated with construction and operation of the proposed racetrack.
Reporter Nancy Lowry will have more details in Thursday's edition of the New Castle News.
