Charity bingo leaving Rockingham Park for new home
Over the past several years, Rockingham Park has been the most mentioned possibility of a casino site in New Hampshire if the state allows for expanded gaming.
As Rockingham Park has faced a waiting game on expanded gaming, its main source of business has been through simulcast racing and charity bingo and other games of chance.
“We’ve known for a couple of months that they were planning on moving,” said Callahan. “We will carry on with other games of chance and simulcast racing.”
The revised plan includes patching holes in the parking lot, relining the parking spots, and improving handicap accessibility, said Ross Moldoff, town planning director.
“I wanted to get a feel for the parking and the number of employees,” said Moldoff. “I felt comfortable after seeing that.”
“This approval is for bingo only,” said Moldoff. “Any other gaming requires additional approval from the planning board.”
