Foxwoods Zoning Legislation Coming In Council Tomorrow

City Councilman Frank DiCicco plans to introduce legislation tomorrow morning to rezone the former Strawbridge & Clothier department store at 8th and Market streets as a "commercial entertainment district," the first step in allowing Foxwoods to open a casino there. DiCicco, speaking with Mayor Nutter and Foxwoods officials this afternoon in City Hall said he believed that location would have less impact on surrounding neighborhoods than the casino investors first two choices, Columbus Boulevard and Reed Street in South Philly and the Gallery at 11th and Market streets.
