City Council approves Hard Rock Casino expansion
The Hard Rock Casino expansion at the Rideau Carleton Raceway has officially been approved.
City Council gave the green light to the $318M expansion plan on Wednesday.
Those plans include a hotel, concert venue, and an expanded casino.
The Hard Rock expansion faced some opposition from councillors who had concerns about problem gambling and resources to help addicts.
A motion to limit the number of slot machines at the casino failed.
Construction on the project is set to begin later this year.
