Resorts World Files Petition For Declaratory Statement To Allow Gambling At Omni

The former Omni mall could have gambling, if a petition filed by Resorts World is granted.

On December 5, Resorts World Omni filed a petition for a declaratory statement from Florida’s Department of Business and Professional Regulation.

The company wants to move a quarter-horse permit from Gulfstream Park to the Omni, but wants a declaration that the permit can be used in Miami-Dade (Gulfstream straddles the county line.)

The property that has been leased for the gambling activities sits across from Edgewater’s Publix, at the corner of 17th Terrace and Biscayne Boulevard.
