New York City Mayor Eric Adams and his administration have proposed new casino zoning rules that would allow for more potential gaming venues. Casino operators are currently bidding for three available casino licenses in downstate New York, and this proposal would allow for more.

The Adams administration proposes to allow casinos within manufacturing districts and certain commercial areas. This move would theoretically create larger individual areas for development, allowing for the inclusion of facilities such as a hotel, restaurants, bars, theatres, affordable housing and other amenities.

The Adams administration believes that these proposals will simplify the regulatory process, making the city a more competitive option for licenses. The eight specific zoning districts proposed including areas in Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island.

The Borough Presidents & Borough Boards, as well as local community boards, must approve the proposals and also gain approval from the City Planning Commission, City Council and Mayor.
