Feb 24, 2014 8:03 PM

Now that MGM Resorts International (MGM) has submitted its formal plans for a $925 million casino complex at National Harbor in Maryland, the Prince George’s County Planning Board is expected to schedule a public hearing as early as April.

Quick approval will help the company complete the project by mid-2016, boosting tourism and expanding the county’s economic base.

MGM officials said they had hired a Prince George’s architectural firm to work as a liaison between the company and the county.
