The proposal to build a slots parlor at Liberty Tree Mall is planned to be discussed for the first time on Tuesday by the Danvers Board of Selectmen, reports The Boston Globe.
Members of the Board of Selectmen will also meet individually with representatives with PPE Casinos MA this week, the Globe reported. PPE Casinos is a subsidiary of the Cordish Co. of Maryland.

The proposal for a 1,250 slots parlor at the mall was first publicly unveiled last month and calls for a 100,000 complex that would include the vacant space at the rear of the mall formerly occupied by The Sports Authority as well as an addition.
