Recent reports highlighting the possible move of Thistledown racetrack from Cleveland to the Akron-Canton area is gaining some attention in the city of Green.
Mayor Dick Norton says he is still unsure if the city would welcome a horse racetrack with video slot machines.
"The reality is we've got to make sure that it can blend with our vision of what Green is and what we want to be," said Norton.
Norton confirmed that officials with Rock Ohio Caesars sat down with him last fall to discuss the possible relocation near the Akron-Canton airport.
Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert owns Rock Ohio along with the HorseShoe Casino in Cleveland which is expected to open this May.
"Dan Gilbert and his organization are proposing to do something pretty classy and pretty spectacular."
Norton says the move would be financially beneficial to the city, but he doesn't want one company to overshadow the city.
"We clearly wouldn't want a racino or any one company to define who we are as a city."
Rock Ohio is looking at multiple locations if the relocation is approved, according to Norton.
