CHICAGO — Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot announced last Friday that the deadline for responding to the casino Request for Proposal (RFP) has been extended to Friday, October 29.

This extension provides potential bidders with additional time to fully assess the Chicago casino opportunity, conduct additional due diligence, assemble more competitive bid packages, and explore financing options.

According to Lightfoot “This historic casino project has the potential to increase our city’s economic vibrancy and strength by providing sustainable, well-paying jobs to residents from underrepresented backgrounds and creating a world-class casino-resort that attracts visitors from all over”
