That anticipated project will bring two new downtown parking garages, along with a new downtown hotel, all in support of the 42,800 square-foot new convention center, to house the Larry Bird Museum, the only museum to be sanctioned by the basketball legend in the Hoosier state.

Terre Haute and Vigo County are continuing their efforts to land a casino. Those efforts got a boost when Spectacle Gaming LLC acquired the two Majestic Star casino licenses located in Gary, Indiana. Spectacle, whose leading partners include Terre Haute businessman Greg Gibson, has discussed moving the casinos from their Gary location on the harbor on Lake Michigan. One would move to Terre Haute. State Sen. Jon Ford has been among those championing an effort in the Indiana General Assembly to allow that to happen. The proposal to move one of the casinos to Terre Haute is currently moving its way through legislature. A final vote is expected soon.
