The Missouri Gaming Commission has announced the time and place for Cape Girardeau residents to voice their opinions for or against a $125 million casino proposed for the city's downtown area.

The hearing has been set for Sept. 27 at 1 p.m. at the Glenn Convocation Center at Southeast Missouri State University's River Campus, 518 S. Fountain St.

The hearings are for public comment only and for the specific sites where the hearings are being conducted. There will be no presentations by the casino companies.

The hearing is the first of three for the state, which will all be held that week. On Sept. 28, the commission will hold a hearing in St. Louis for a casino proposed there and on Sept. 29 a hearing for Sugar Creek's casino proposal near Kansas City, Mo.

Pertinent address:

518 S. Fountain St., Cape Girardeau, MO
