Pinnacle submits two casino proposals for Kansas

Pinnacle Entertainment, the Las Vegas-based gaming and entertainment company, has proposed two locations for a destination resort and casino in Wyandotte County.

Except for their locations, the proposals are nearly identical in architecture and amenities. Pinnacle’s first proposal is near the interchange of Interstate 435 and Parallel Parkway; the second proposal would be located at the future interchange at I-435 and Donahoo Road.

Officials of the firm say the proposals give the Unified Government the option of using the casino development to spur growth in an entirely new area or to use the casino development as a way to fill in existing development.
