The Mohegan Tribe plans to invest a significant amount of money in a development project in Connecticut.
According to news reports, the tribe will buy the 390-acre site of the former Norwich State Hospital. The tribe would then invest up to $600 million in a project being dubbed the Preston Riverwalk that would include office space, retail locations, entertainment options and possibly housing.
The site is located across the Thames River from the reservation but Preston First Selectman Robert Congdon told The Hartford Courant that the tribe won't seek to have it placed in trust.
The development agreement for the property is subject to voter approval.
