Outlet Mall May Come to Foxwoods

Sheldon Gordon has proposed an 85-shop mall for the Mashantucket casino

 

Greenwich-based developer Sheldon Gordon has proposed an outlet mall to be constructed at Foxwoods Resort Casino, reported the Associated Press.

The upscale shopping center would house 85 shops, according to the article.

"Foxwoods officials declined to comment on the mall proposal," the article states. "They say the eastern Connecticut casino will announce property development and expansion plans on Feb. 15, which is the 20th anniversary of Foxwoods' opening."

More information on the proposal is available here.

On Ledyard Patch's Facebook page (www.facebook.com/LedyardPatch), we asked the question, would locals shop at an outlet mall at the casino? Reader Jules Lambert Lemelin posted this: "No I would not. I would go out of my way not to shop there. I'm tired of my tax dollars not going to the town of Ledyard. They town is facing severe school educational cuts and kids from Mashantucket attend our schools. Perhaps Foxwoods could look at ways to give a little more to Ledyard and invest in the community that surrounds it!" What do you think?

Jules - Well said ! DO the people of Foxwoods even realize that the school system THEIR children attend is going through these severe cuts? These cuts effect everyone including our Mashantucket community. So as Jules said above "Perhaps Foxwoods could look at ways to give a little more to Ledyard and invest in the community that surrounds it!"

I agree with Jules and Denise. Our schools are in desperate need of help, we do not need another "shopping mall"!

They do financially give to the town I do not know the per pupil cost... I'm certain someone does but it is not equal to our tax rate per homeowner. I was suggesting that Foxwoods contribute more to the town in any way. No child should be impacted again by the deep educational budget cuts that the Town of Ledyard is asking of our BOE. The town of Ledyard should be aggressively seeking various sources of revenue into the town rather than force it on the back of our schools and us as tax payers. Our BOE has done their job as have your tax payers! It's time for the town to do more. As for Foxwoods partner with our town invest in us like you dining your patrons.
