The four Garden City Property Owners’ Associations (POAs) will hold a special joint meeting on the proposed casino at the Nassau Coliseum. The joint meeting will be held on Tuesday, December 12, at 7:30 p.m. at the Garden City Senior Center.
The casino as proposed would be the second largest casino in the U.S.; the entire complex would be almost twice the size of the Roosevelt Field mall; and the number of daily visitors is expected to exceed 23,000.
Topics to be discussed will include:
Overview of the 12 companies that are competing for the 3 casino licenses
NYS approval process
Status of the lawsuit against the County
Summary of the social and economic harms of the proposed casino
How residents can get involved and have their voices heard.
Members of the Say NO to the Casino Civic Association will be presenting. Ed Finneran, Village Trustee, will provide an overview as to how villages like Garden City will participate in the SEQRA process.
