approval of the MGM National Harbor site plan by the Prince George's County Council, sitting as the District Council, is a giant leap forward for jobs and
opportunity for the residents of Prince George's County. This $1 billion
resort and entertainment venue is the surest sign that we are bringing the
world to Prince George's County and becoming a national destination for economic
development. MGM National Harbor will generate thousands of new jobs and
millions in new tax revenue for the County and State.
The Council looks forward to considering the Community Benefits Agreement negotiated between the County and MGM on Wednesday, July 23, which establishes requirements for local minority business participation, local hiring, and local resident investment opportunities for the MGM National Harbor facility. This is the first Community Benefits Agreement negotiated with one of Maryland's approved casino venues.
