Planned Gambling Complex In Norcross Suffers Setback

ATLANTA (AP) — A developer’s attempt to build a gambling complex in Norcross has suffered a setback.

Developer Dan O’Leary said he no longer controls the Norcross property where he proposed building Georgia’s first gambling complex.

O’Leary told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he extended the land contract seven times before. But he said that he doesn’t foresee action by state leaders to approve an expansion of gambling in the short term. However, O’Leary said he is not giving up on the idea.

Georgia approved a lottery two decades ago to fund a scholarship program. Subsequent attempts to expand gambling have failed. O’Leary had proposed installing 7,500 video lottery terminals run by the state lottery at the proposed facility.
