Thursday night, the Davenport Community Improvement Corporation will discuss the scores given to each potential developer’s plan for the new land based city-owned casino.

Last month, two of the three developers presented their plans and a dozen people evaluated them.  The scores will be discussed at the meeting Thursday night.

To see the proposed plans, check out News Eight’s Angie Sharps story. http://wqad.com/2012/12/20/davenport-receives-three-casino-proposals-creative-developments/

Next week, the group handling the casino will hold interviews with the potential developers.  There will also be a trip planned for January 8th to Dubuque to meet with the city and tour their city-owned casinos as well.
