“This has been a terrific project from the start, as the development team has worked closely with community stakeholders for more than two years, helping to position this proposal so it can take this vision to market quickly and efficiently. Once approved, crews will be able to break ground within 30 days, something quite rare in the development industry. No other destination resort project can match this timeline. This project has the backing of the Sullivan County Legislature.”

— Scott B. Samuelson, Chairman, Sullivan County Legislature


“As Supervisor of the Town of Thompson, I can say that the Town is very proud to host this project. When this project began, the developers met with many stakeholders and completely immersed themselves to understand our community, our local businesses, our economy and our planning process. We look forward to and encourage State approval and the beginning of an economic revival for the Town of Thompson and the entire Catskill Region.”

— William J. Rieber, Jr., Supervisor, Town Of Thompson


“The Partnership for Economic Development is excited and fully supports this most transformative project. The Partnership believes this project will be the economic catalyst  that will create a  critical mass of  construction and permanent jobs and the investment needed to be a tremendous boost for the entire Catskills region. This plan is an extraordinary benefit to Sullivan County and to New York State.”

—  Marc Baez, Sullivan County Partnership


“Having a sustainable casino resort destination in Sullivan County Catskills will be a boon to the tourism industry. This project is one that will bring benefits that had not been seen in decades. The tourism benefits of this project cannot be understated. Tax revenue that will flow into Sullivan County will have a profound impact on schools and towns, having an echoing effect of financial benefits. Increased visitor spending and employment growth will generate needed revenue while supporting our existing industry and ancillary businesses.  The Sullivan County Visitors Association fully endorses this project.”

—  Roberta Byron-Lockwood, Sullivan County Visitors Association


“The casino resort’s visitors will have a reverberation effect on many of Sullivan’s businesses. Visitors will not just stay in the hotel and the casino. They will also explore what Sullivan has to offer. Going out for dinner or exploring quaint shops, for example. And that means badly needed new revenue for those businesses. We are at the beginning of a revitalization project and a new era for Sullivan County and the Sullivan County Chamber of Commerce is looking forward to this project becoming reality.”

— Cathy Paty, Sullivan County Chamber


“Hudson Valley Building Trades endorses this plan. The project will create more than 2,550 construction jobs. This is a project size that has never been seen in this area and the jobs are desperately needed.”

—  Todd Diorio, Hudson Valley Building Trades


"The New York Hotel Trades Council, AFL-CIO, supports this exemplary project. It is an important commitment to Sullivan County and the area that will ensure that good-paying permanent jobs are being created for the region. We look forward to seeing this vision become a reality."

—  Josh Gold, New York Hotel and Motel Trades Council, AFL-CIO
