Lawyers for the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board yesterday slammed the Foxwoods Casino developers for missing a Dec. 1 deadline to submit architectural renderings of its stalled South Philadelphia slots parlor, and advised against an extension to March 1.
In August, the board gave Foxwoods until May 2011 - an extra two years - to complete a casino with 1,500 slots in operation. At the time, deadlines were set for phases of the project. The first required the developers to submit design plans by Dec. 1. Instead, Foxwoods asked for an extension.
Dale W. Miller, deputy chief enforcement counsel for the board, wrote that Foxwoods had offered no facts supporting its request, "only vague references to changing money markets and unnamed possible investors."
Stephen Cozen, a lawyer for the Foxwoods partners, could not be reached for comment. - Jennifer Lin
