Stop Newburgh Casino started this petition to Newburgh residents and

The parent company of Resorts World casino in Catskill wants to build a gambling hall in the Town of Newburgh at the Newburgh Mall. This beautiful town......The Crossroads of the Northeast,  cannot afford to host a place which would change the peaceful way of life. Casinos and facilities like them bring nuisance and other social and moral crimes along with their operations. We the residents of Town of Newburgh and surrounding areas oppose the idea of building such a facility in own Town.

It is being touted as a money making, revenue generating opportunity for the Town and the area residents, but the history shows that facilities like this promise huge sums of money but never deliver at the end. The residents of the area ultimately pay the price in form of higher taxes, over worked services and law enforcement departments.

This particular facility is being touted as a leisure gaming hall which will supplement the newly built casino in Catskills. That particular facility was built and inaugurated with all fanfare and huge revenue projections, but it ended up being a dud and had to be rescued by the very man who owns Genting America to prevent the facility from going bankrupt.

The revenue projections for the proposed facility don't seem realistic in the current economic climate. There is another casino proposed barely 65 miles south of Newburgh at Meadowlands in New Jersey.

The project in Newburgh is going to end up being a dud as well and will affect the quality of life in our town. Raise your voice and stop this from happening, save your Town, your home and way of life and give your kids a better family friendly environment, not a gambling facility.
