There are three proposals for the site of a new casino in Prince George's County.

All this week in Maryland, the public will be able to weigh in on where a new casino should be built in Prince George's County.

Three companies are seeking to build a casino that voters approved via referendum last fall. This week, all three will go before the Maryland Video Lottery Facility Location Commission to present their cases. 

After all three companies give their presentations, there will be public comment sessions where residents can voice their views. All three of those public events are taking place at Friendly High School in Fort Washington. 

The first session Monday evening will focus on a proposed casino at Rosecroft Raceway. Up Wednesday will be the plan to build a casino and spa at the intersection of Indian Head Highway and Old Fort Road in Fort Washington. Then on Friday, it will be the proposed casino and resort hotel at National Harbor, the heavy favorite to win the gaming license, up for discussion. 

All three public sessions start at 6:00 p.m.
