Meeting to be held on proposed Suffolk OTB sitePosted: Updated:
A meeting will be held tonight on whether gambling should come to Medford.
A proposed $65 million Suffolk OTB project would include a mini casino on the site of the old Brookhaven Multiplex movie theater, which is on the south side of the Long Island Expressway in Medford.
Some residents say they are worried about increased traffic and crime in their community.
OTB officials say they will work with the community to make the facility a success.
Tonight's private, invitation-only meeting will include civic groups and fire officials.
