The Oxford Casino is expanding.
Casino owners, lawmakers and Gov. Paul LePage broke ground Tuesday on a new hotel due to open in 2017. The project will include more than 100 new guest rooms and an expansion of the gaming floor.
“We are honored to continue investing in this community, to create new jobs, and generate economic development, both for Oxford and surrounding communities,” says Bill Mudd, chief operating officer of Churchill Downs, the company that owns the Oxford Casino.
LePage praised Churchill Downs for bringing jobs to Maine.
