The present report is an extraction of information from that report specific to the impacts of the construction and operation of Plainridge Park Casino (PPC).

In general, it can be said that the impacts of PPC to date have largely been positive, with clear positive economic impacts along with relatively minor negative social impacts. The profile of specific impacts is described below.
