NORFOLK, VA – A potential partnership could materialize with the City of Norfolk in advance of HeadWaters Resort & Casino’s opening. The Pamunkey Indian Tribe, in coordination with the development of its HeadWaters Resort & Casino, is in preliminary discussions with the City of Norfolk to open a restaurant and lounge with limited gaming. “No decisions have been made at this point, but we will continue to have conversations with the city about this opportunity,” said Jay Smith, Spokesman for the HeadWaters Resort & Casino. “We are ready to make a major investment in the stadium, create job opportunities and begin providing tax revenue to the city, if this is something they would like to pursue.”
The HeadWaters Resort & Casino project won city approval with an overwhelming majority of residents voting in favor of the project in November. Once the Virginia Lottery approves the tribe’s casino operator license application, construction on the facility will commence immediately.
The initial phase of the project is expected to be completed in 2023.
