Local officials are being asked to approve something similar to what is now at Scioto Downs
A proposal to add a Racino in Warren County comes before local authorities Tuesday.
Last month, the commission approved a TIF district at State Route 63 and Union Road that would help fund improvements to roads in the area where the 188,000 square foot facility would be built, across from the Lebanon Correctional Institution in Turtlecreek Township.
The complex would include a 5/8 mile track with a 700 seat grandstand, about 2,500 video lottery terminals, a restaurant and gift shop. The current Lebanon Raceway would be relocated to the site as well. If approved by commissioners and the state, the unnamed project would be the second 'racino' in the state.
Scioto Downs opened in June in Columbus.
