Chicago is one step closer to getting a casino.  The City Council voted yesterday to approve zoning changes required for the one-point-seven-billion-dollar Bally’s casino on the Near North Side.  The vote marks the final stage of Council approvals for the massive project.  Bally’s still needs licensing approval from the Illinois Gaming Board to proceed with the casino.
