Will mini-casinos pop up near Pennsylvania tourist spots?Jon Harris, The Morning Call · November 10, 2017 at 6:30 am Susan Paddock, the longtime leader of No Casino Gettysburg, has been through this before — three times before, to be exact.First, there was a failed proposal in 2005 to build a casino resort 1 ½ miles from Gettysburg National Military Park, a location that promised to draw traffic from neighboring Maryland but also stirred opposition for its proximity to hallowed ground. The next proposal came about six years later at the Eisenhower Hotel in nearby Cumberland Township, but the license up for grabs was awarded instead to a resort in the southwestern part of the state. The third time wasn’t the charm, either, when a developer in June canceled his attempt to bring a racetrack casino to Adams County due to the uncertainty created by a gambling expansion bill that was being weighed in Harrisburg. Fast-forward about five months — or more than a dozen years from that first proposal — and it’s the gambling expansion legislation signed by Gov. Tom Wolf on Oct. 30 that could put the Gettysburg area back into consideration again. That’s because the law allows for the establishment of up to 10 satellite casinos across the state, which is slated to kick off with a competitive bidding process by early next year.
