The Hollywood Casino in Aurora ticked another item off its moving to-do list Wednesday, as the Aurora Planning and Zoning Commission approved requests to rezone the site and for a conditional-use permit.
Only two residents attended the public hearing Wednesday night, where the commission heard about Penn Entertainment’s plans to move the casino to a 16.8-acre site on the west side of Farnsworth Avenue.
Only two commissioners asked questions about the plan. Commissioner Yvonne Owusu-Safo and Nancy Martinez asked about the effect on traffic.
Martinez asked about what would happen to the intersection of Church and Molitor roads, south of the casino. The casino’s plan calls for employees to enter the site on Church. Casino and hotel patrons would enter from Farnsworth.
