PLAINVILLE, Mass. – The Massachusetts horse track, Plainridge Racecourse, is asking the town of Plainville to negotiate a host community agreement that would bring slot machines to the site, according to the Sun Chronicle.

Town officials have been open-minded about bringing expanded gambling to Plainridge and there has been none of the controversy that has stifled attempts to bring a casino resort to nearby Foxboro, according to the newspaper.

The host community agreement would spell out the details of exactly what the Plainridge track can include in its gambling facility, what the impact on the town may be and what compensation would be set aside for the town.

A successful agreement would make Plainville the first place in Massachusetts to utilize the Bay State’s new law legalizing gambling.
