The City of Somerville is hosting an informational public meeting with Massachusetts Gaming Commission staffer John Ziemba to give city officials and the public a better understanding of the state’s casino laws and how those laws may relate to Somerville.
Gambling casinos have mixed effects upon the communities surrounding them, including increases in traffic, decreases in property values, and increases in gambling-related social problems.
