A proposal to move the current Chances Mission to a new location and increase the size and type of gaming offered, will be publicly discussed next month.
A public information session will take place on Dec. 12 at 6:30 p.m. at Mission City Hall.
Members of council will listen to the public’s comments regarding Gateway Casinos and Entertainment Ltd.’s application to the BC Lottery Corporation to relocate Chances Mission which is currently located at 7178 Horne Street.
It operates 125 slot machines, bingo, one electronic table and offers a small dining service within 16,000 square feet. Gateway is proposing to move Chances to a new development at 31831 Lougheed Highway by Wren Street.
The new facility will be 30,000 square feet including a 10,000 square feet improved dining experience. The new mix of gaming opportunities could include the addition of regular gaming tables and an increase in the number of slot machines and electronic gaming tables although the exact mix is unknown at this time.
