Station Casino Looks for Community Feedback - Sunday 25th of June 2006

RENO, Nevada – As reported by the Reno Gazette-Journal: "Station Casinos Inc. is submitting initial plans to the city for its planned $500 million south Reno project, Mt. Rose Station Casino Resort, but is asking the community to help fill in the details.

"Station sent a mailer to south Reno residents, as it has previously to announce the hotel-casino, but now is surveying people for what they would like to see at the property.

"Options on the mailer and at the company's online survey include Mexican, Asian or seafood restaurants, movie theaters, ice-skating rink and other amenities.

"…Plans call for the casino to begin construction within as much as three years, opening with about 300 hotel rooms, and 500,000 square feet of casino, restaurants and entertainment essentially the same size property as the company's Green Valley Ranch in Southern Nevada, Nielson said. That property opened with 200 rooms but has expanded to nearly 500, and the Reno property could expand to 600 within a decade, he said.

"…The mailing also attempts to relieve nearby residents' concerns about traffic, proximity to schools and quality of life around the resort…"
