Off Track Betting - Town of Vinton

Dear SIr or Madam,

We'd like to express our support for lifting the current cap (150) on the number of terminals that would be permitted in the Town of Vinton, which we understand is due to the town's population alone. The Off Track facility will serve the broader Roanoke Valley MSA which enjoys a population of over 300,000.

This regulatory change would indeed permit the Vinton facility to better serve the broader population. In addition, the related jobs and investment are important to the broader region.

Thank you for your consideration of allowing the broader MSA population to serve as the basis for lifting the current cap on the number of terminals the Vinton facility may have.
