Purposed Gettysburg casino is opposed by residents
April 10, 2011
The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board will meet on Thursday to decided on a new
casino proposal. The new casino is planned to be located half a mile away from
the Gettysburg National Military Park. Their decision could have a major impact
on the Mid Atlantic tourism.
Mason-Dixon polling conducted a survey about the proposed casino. The results
were not in favor. 66 percent of the people were not for a new casino. 60
percent would also like to see future casinos stopped in the future by use of
Gettysburg National Military Park is a major attraction for tourists. The Civil
War Preservation Trust is opposed to the idea of a casino being built so close
to the battlefield. This year is the 150 anniversary of the war. They are
expecting a rise in tourism this year.
Opponents to the casino proposal feel that the casino will distract from the
experience for visitors to the battlefield in a negative way. They also feel
that it will discourage tourists from visiting.
