Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts submitted a site plan for its proposed casino project in Orange County to the Indiana Gaming Commission


INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts (THCR) submitted a site plan for its proposed casino project in Orange County to the Indiana Gaming Commission. Trump Springs Valley Casino & Resort is projected to open in early 2006.

"There has been great progress on the casino project in Orange County," said Robert M. Pickus, executive vice president and general counsel of THCR. "Meetings between Trump representatives and state and local officials continue as we look forward to breaking ground later this year."

Designs for the restoration and new construction will preserve and enhance the history of Orange County and create a marketable vacation destination to restore the flow of visitors who flocked to the region's mineral springs and other attractions in the early 1900s.
