Ellenville, NY - Village OKs Gambling Casino for Old Nevele Resort
Ellenville, NY - The Wawarsing Town Board is squarely behind developing casino gambling in the soon-to-be revived Nevele Hotel.
The town board voted Thursday night to support the state legislation that would allow casino gaming in New York. The local board added that it supports casino gaming in Ulster County and that any such facility should be located in Wawarsing.
Town Councilman John Gavaris said the developers of the Nevele want to retain the name and image of the hotel with its skiing and hiking trails, but also wants to add the casino, which he said would be a “lifeline” for the economy of the area with its projected 2,000 direct jobs and 3,000 indirect jobs.
