New racino project moves ahead in southwest Ohio

LEBANON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in Warren County are moving ahead on a planned $175 million “racino” in southwest Ohio near Interstate 75 and Monroe.

The 120-acre site would include a harness racing track with grandstand and an indoor site with 2,500 video lottery terminals. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports restaurants, a gift shop and other buildings also are planned. The racino is projected to employ 700 people.

County commissioners in Lebanon plan a hearing Tuesday on the project, after earlier approving a tax plan to fund road and other public improvements around the site.
