BERLIN, N.H. (AP) – If gambling is approved in New Hampshire, a casino could eventually open in Berlin.

Plans were unveiled Tuesday for a complex in the city that would house slot machines, gaming tables, a restaurant and conference center.

An organization called New Hampshire Charitable Gaming would like to seek a license for the casino complex, which would be constructed in three phases, the New Hampshire Union Leader reported. The first would be renovating the Albert Theatre.

Berlin’s mayor and city council support legalized gambling. With the closing and demolition of the pulp mill that dominated the city two years ago, officials have been looking or ways to reinvent itself.
