Chicago City Council committee delays vote for Bally’s casino

A special city council committee delayed its vote on plans for Bally’s Corp. to build a casino in River West.

The vote was scheduled for Friday, but Ald. Tom Tunney announced the vote would not happen that afternoon.

Last week, residents pushed back on a proposal they worry will increase traffic and crime.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced the Bally’s proposal as her final selection for a Chicago casino earlier this month.

The development would replace the Chicago Tribune printing plant along the Chicago River at Chicago Avenue and Halsted Street in River West.
