Boxborough Board of Selectman: Please Oppose Casino Development in 01719

This petition had 865 supporters


A casino of any type would have a significant and irreversible detrimental impact on the quality of life here in 01719 and surrounding communities.

Independent research shows that casinos result in the following: increased crime (including violent crimes), increased traffic, increased drunk driving incidents, increased police budget and loss in property values without providing any skilled high-tech jobs that many of our residents seek.

We are deeply concerned and believe that even the proposal of such a casino will adversely impact property values in a town that attracts homeowners who value the quiet rural setting, historic-feel, family-centric, and stellar educational environment that Boxborough is recognized for.

We are open to alternative revenue source discussions and options, but are strongly opposed to any type of casino development. We can do better; let's focus the town's limited resources on more positive options for revenue generation that reflect our values and community.

Thank you.
