From AMC enews blast:
In the New York Highlands developers are proposing a 1.4 million square foot casino hotel in the heart of Sterling Forest State Park. The proposal includes a new highway interchange off the New York Thruway for an expected seven million visitors a year.
AMC has worked side-by-side with our partners for close to two decades to protect the 22,000-acre Sterling Forest State Park, which offers outstanding recreational opportunities, including six miles of the iconic Appalachian Trail. Approximately $55 million in public open space funding was contributed toward the park’s purchase and protection by the federal government, New York, and New Jersey. But now, this enormous development proposal threatens to devastate the ecological integrity and irreplaceable recreational values for which the land was initially protected.
