Senecas plan casino in the Catskills
January 7, 2009
MONTICELLO, NY - The Seneca Nation of Indians has partnered with Rotate
Black Gaming Inc., a Michigan-based development and management group, in a
project to build a gaming resort in the Catskills. The proposed site is 63
acres in the Town of Thompson just off Route 17.
In a report to the federal Securities and Exchange Commission, Rotate Black
Gaming Inc said the project would include a "hotel, enclosed pool
environment, multiple restaurants, banquet facilities, food court and spa.
The proposed project will need state and federal approval before
construction can begin. The U.S. Department of Interior made it harder last
year to approve Indian casinos beyond commuting distance of reservations.
Thompson Supervisor Tony Cellini is also skeptical of the plan. He said the
casino site has not been approved by state lawmakers and nobody has
approached him about it. "If they think they're coming into my town to plop
down a casino and walk out without talking to anybody, well, they've got a
second thought coming," Cellini said.
