The latest on Big George Ventures

This past Thursday, August 2, the Douglas County Commissioners had a meeting of potentially critical importance to Big George Ventures. The meeting began at 6pm and continued until about 1:30am (no joke!). I had no idea that it was even possible for a County meeting to go on so late!

The Jethro's Casino project won approval by 3-2 votes of the Commissioners on a variety of fronts. The big news for us, however, is that towards the end of the meeting, it was decided that Jethro's Casino and Big George Ventures were to attempt to work together with the County to come up with a joint plan of some sort to create something "really special". That's music to my ears, since I think it's the only possible way that Big George Ventures and the Casino team can both end up happy!

The plan at present is to work like crazy and put something together for the October 11 Commissioners meeting. There's actually even less time to get this done than it sounds like, though, because whatever we come up with needs to be submitted to Douglas County three weeks or so before the meeting.


  • Ray,

    Been admiring BGV project from afar...

    How did the October 11th meeting go for BGV?
