Philly casino on the move?

Casino developers in Philadelphia are moving forward with a plan to build a Foxwoods Casino near Chinatown and the city's historic district.

The latest plan calls for the slots parlor to be built in a struggling retail area a few blocks west of Independence Mall.

Many residents of Chinatown and other nearby neighborhoods oppose the site.

But city officials say the developers will submit a formal plan in a few months for the proposed casino at the Gallery at Market East.

The city says it will hold several public meetings on the proposed site in the interim.
