Plans to build a permanent casino and entertainment district in Chicago’s River West continue to evolve based on feedback from residents, Bally’s officials said at a community engagement meeting for the project Monday evening.


As outlined Monday, the design now includes more greenspace and an additional road connections into the riverfront district to address traffic concerns. That followed an earlier decision to nix a proposed pedestrian bridge over the river following community pushback.


During 90 minutes of public comment during Monday’s meeting, several speakers praised Bally’s willingness to adjust designs after receiving feedback, describing Bally’s approach to community engagement as “fair.” But concerns of increased traffic and noise pollution linger from people living in the surrounding neighborhoods.
