Support From South Chicago Heights
I write on behalf of the Village of South Chicago Heights in support of locating the Wind Creek Hospitality Casino and Entertainment in the Village of East Hazel Crest and Homewood.
The Village of East Hazel Crest and Homewood are just North, less than 7 miles from the Village of South Chicago Heights. Both communities are centrally located just off of I-80 making it a prime location for a quality casino and entertainment complex. Indiana is less than a 10-minute drive.
In addition, Wind Creek will create over 800 jobs to the south suburban region. They have committed and created a Southland Public Benefit Fund that will distribute $150,000 annually for the first five years of operation to fund scholarships for disadvantaged students. Our communities need businesses that are willing to give back to their communities.
As Village President of the Village of South Chicago Heights and lifelong resident of the same I strongly support the Wind Creek Hospitality Casino and Entertainment being located in East Hazel Crest and Homewood.
