Pro-Casino Group Hosts Launch Meeting

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Destination Saratoga presented its opinion on bringing a new casino to Saratoga Springs at a press conference on Wednesday, December 11 at Lillian’s Restaurant.

Destination Saratoga, formed by community members and local business owners and funded by the Saratoga Casino & Raceway, started forming the idea of expanding the facility a few weeks ago.

Citizens group Saratogians Against Vegas-style Expansion (SAVE)  previously spoke out against the possible addition of a new casino in Saratoga Springs.

The next public forum in regards to the plans for an added casino is set for Monday, December 16 at 7 p.m. at the Saratoga Springs City Center. This bi-partisan forum has been organized by The Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce.

Destination Saratoga members have said that any extension to the Saratoga Casino & Raceway would be contained within the present 160-acre campus and run by the  same local owners who have been there since 2003.

The racetrack casino has directly put forth $16 million in aid to Saratoga County since 2007.
