Lago Resort & Casino’s construction suspended because of a court appeal – New York

The Appelate Division of New York Supreme Court ruled a decision to re-assess the environmental impact of Lago Resort & Casino, an under-construction gambling facility owned by Rochester-based billionaire, Thomas Wilmot. Located in Tyre Town, Seneca County, the said casino is actually subject to another environment assessment review, prompting the casino’s developer to suspend construction until further notice. Recall that Lago is one of the casino proposals holding a license granted by the state Gaming Facilities Location Board in the eve of the 2013 constitutional amendment that allow up to seven casino operations in New York.

Frustrated, Thomas Wilmot showed his disappointment over the course of thing. On Monday, he said in a statement he shared the same disappointment as the residents in Seneca County and the Finger Lakes region who really need such job opportunities from Lago Resort & Casino. On the other side of the board, the court decision received thousands of thumb-up by anti-casino group, Casino Free Tyre. The latter has always positioned themselves as a fierce opponents of such development. By all accounts, things are likely to get better as Thomas Wilmot and his team are actively working on lobbying-focused campaign in order to find a solution in the shortest time frame, and eventually resume the work.
