C$100 million project and its members’ integrity as uncertainty hung over the entire project.

You may recall that on the last day of 2020, we witnessed a great step towards the Entertainment Special Zone project in the Great Sudbury area. The District Planning Appeals Tribunal has rejected the last remaining appeal relating to a large project expected to be constructed. These appeals were preventing large entertainment zones from proceeding to the construction stage.

The District Planning and Appeals Tribunal has made it clear in its official statement that the appeal, which needs to be reviewed, has not established any discrepancies or nonconformities with regard to planning policy. This eventually led to the rejection of all remaining appeals, essentially paving the way for Kingsway Entertainment District to move forward. The move ended all legal disputes related to it.

Does KED come with Starlight Casino Sudbury?
A higher court ruled that Greater Sudbury does not show bias when it approves a C$100 million entertainment zone. An appeal against this ruling has not been made within the acceptance period. Kingsway Entertainment District is expected to include casino complexes and other family-friendly offerings that combine hotel venues as part of the structure. Planning for this project is carried out in such a way that all parts depend on the rest.

Member for Sudbury prefers the KED
Member for Kirwan pointed out that the special zone should be built as a whole and that the parties involved would like to see that happen once this becomes possible. Gateway Casino & Entertainment is a casino operator who will oversee game operations on the site within the casino complex. It will be named Starlight Casino Sudbury.

What’s in the store?
Despite all the delays and obstacles, the casino giant is still determined to witness its casino operations within the Kingsway Entertainment District, as it will provide a positive boost to the local economy. The project is also expected to attract more tourists to the area who want to provide entertainment and gambling. The decision will also result in the creation of many new jobs for those seeking reliable income.

Superior Court Welcomes KED Casino Opposition
Towards the end of 2020, County Councillor Gary Montpellier Ward 3 created an email conversation between him and Robert Mitchell, director of communications and public relations at Gateway Casino. It expressed a direction already familiar to casino operators who are focusing on reopening offline locations as a priority. However, it has also been confirmed that casino operators want to be part of the KED.

Will the highly anticipated KED meeting on May 5 be postponed?
Local developer Dario Zulich is also determined to see the project pay off in the next few years, so it’s no use. But councilman Jeff McCusland pointed out that some of the hotel’s venues remain unmanaged, as no hospitality company has indicated a desire to oversee it.
