Springfield's City Council is approving MGM's request to delay a market-rate housing project that's part of the deal to bring a casino to town.
The council voted unanimously at last night's meeting to give MGM until March 2020, which will be 18 months after the casino and resort is scheduled to open.
MGM requested the delay because it found a new spot it wants to develop, a historic block on Elm Street at Court Square.
The original timeline called for most of the work to be done by next month.
