Port considers moving - Tuesday 28th of July 2009

The Port Canaveral Board of Commissioners is considering relocating SunCruz Casinos from the cove side of the port to the cruise terminal side.

The floating casino operator said that could be a bad business decision since two other casino lines tanked on that side of the port in the past.

Officials said the move would help improve the port and make it more of a "destination location."

“SunCruz has been in the cove for twelve years, generating hundreds of millions of dollars in economic development here,” said Gary Inks with SunCruz Casinos. “Three days ago, we find out they are going to make a decision to relocate SunCruz from the cove to one of the terminal buildings.”

The parent company of SunCruz Casinos, Oceans Casino Cruises, is based in South Florida and provides gaming cruises in Myrtle Beach, Jacksonville, Port Canaveral and Key Largo.

The Port of Canaveral Board of Commissioners will hear from consultants about whether or not to relocate the casino on Wednesday.
