CRDA meeting 2018

CRDA meeting Jan 30, 2018

ATLANTIC CITY — Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City on Tuesday will seek preliminary and final site approval for its $500 million Boardwalk project from the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority during its public meeting.

Details on the variances being sought by the casino were not immediately available.

The expected site approval for the project will come less than 24 hours before Hard Rock’s three-city press conference to announce the casino hotel’s opening date and entertainment lineup. The company will livestream the conference Wednesday from Hard Rock Cafe Times Square in New York to its preview center in Tanger Outlets The Walk in Atlantic City and Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia.

The CRDA also will vote on approval of a fund reservation for the 2019 Miss America Competition, details of which were not available Monday.

Additionally, the authority will vote on authorizing an amendment to its agreement with the city to fund special law-enforcement officers for the Tourism District this summer in an amount not to exceed $1.5 million.

Also on the authority’s agenda for its 2 p.m. meeting is an amendment to its agreement with the Inlet Public Private Association reallocating $52,000 in remaining funds to supplement 2018 operations and fund repairs for the Absecon Lighthouse.
