Anne Arundel County Local Development Council
The Local Development Council is established under the authority of State law in those counties in which a video lottery terminal facility (casino) is located. The Local Development Council’s sole purpose is to advise the County Executive on the needs and priorities of the communities surrounding the Maryland Live! Casino and the expenditure of video lottery terminal funds.
Anne Arundel County receives 4.51% of total revenues generated by video lottery terminals at Maryland Live! Casino. These monies are distributed by Anne Arundel County in the form of local impact grants and must be used for improvements primarily in the communities in immediate proximity to the casino. Permitted uses are: infrastructure improvements; facilities; public safety; sanitation; economic and community development, including housing; and other public services and improvements. State Government Article, Section 9-1A-31.
The County Executive provides for the expenditure of local impact grants in the annual Budget within the Video Lottery Facility Local Impact Grant Special Revenue Fund. The Local Development Council serves in an advisory capacity regarding the expenditures of local impact grants.
