No casino in Tuxedo

Make text smaller Make text larger

Genting America's proposal to develop a casino resort on 280 acres completely surrounded by Sterling Forest State Park in Tuxedo is simply the wrong thing in the wrong place.

It took over 20 years of effort by thousands of people and millions of dollars to create this new state park.

It was designated a park preserve because of its unusually diverse habitats, plants and animals and it was named an Important Bird Area by the Audubon Society.

Importantly, it provides clean drinking water for over a million New Jersey residents.

Local residents and visitors alike have come to enjoy the unspoiled nature this park provides from quiet trails to birds and bears to game and fish for sportsmen.

To encourage a crass and vulgar commercial venture of a 1,000-room, six to eight-story hotel and parking garage, crowned by cupolas exceeding the height of its natural surroundings is unthinkable.

Gondolas, gardens, glaring lights and gamblers are totally incompatible with this quiet forest, its wildlife and the families that enjoy its quieter pleasures.
