BRISTOL, Va. (WJHL) — The Bristol, Virginia City Council will hold a public hearing next week regarding the preferred operator of a proposed casino.
The meeting will take place Thursday, May 21 at 12:30 p.m. at city hall (300 Lee St.).
The meeting comes after Hard Rock International submitted a proposal for a casino at the former Bristol Mall. The hearing will give members of the public a chance to give their input on the proposal.
The city will continue to accept public comments by phone (276-645-7333) and email (firstname.lastname@example.org) for those who do not wish to attend the meeting in person due to COVID-19.
The city will have to hold referendum to legalize casino-style gambling before the casino can be built.
