The Frankfort Township Board on Dec. 3 called upon the Illinois Gaming Board to deny the location of a proposed casino in Matteson at the corner of Harlem Avenue and Lincoln Highway. Multiple reasons led to the Board’s opposition of the casino location, including the close proximity to two schools and three densely populated residential neighborhoods. The request was made through a letter sent to the Illinois Gaming Board.
