In the New York Highlands, Sterling Forest State Park is threatened by a proposed 1.4 million-square-foot hotel and casino. The resort would overwhelm the park with an estimated 6.9 million visitors a year, bringing 19,000 new cars a day, along with increased noise and light pollution and that will negatively impact the enjoyment of Sterling Forest and Harriman State Parks.
The New York State Gaming Commission is expected to decide on December 17th whether or not to grant a casino license to the developers proposing this massive development in Sterling Forest, less than 1.5 miles from the Appalachian Trail and in the heart of the Highlands.
Speak up today! Write to the NY State Gaming Commission and urge them to oppose the Sterling Forest casino.
