Aurora City Council finalizes plan for Hollywood Casino move

The City of Aurora finalized plans Tuesday to move the Hollywood Casino from its longtime location on the Fox River to a spot near the Premium Outlets Mall.

The City Council voted 10-1 Tuesday to modify the zoning and move forward with the project.

The plan calls for the Hollywood Casino Aurora to move from its location on the Fox River downtown – where it has been located since it opened 30 years ago – to the new site closer to the Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88).

The $360 million plan includes a $50 million bond issuance by the city, which the city has previously said would be repaid not from general taxpayer funds, but from increased property taxes received from the new site.
