Developers unveil plans for Catskills casino

Liberty, N.Y. (AP) — Developers hoping to open one of four Las Vegas-style casinos planned for upstate New York are laying out their vision for an old Catskills resort region.

The Times Herald-Record of Middletown (New York)reports that Sal Semola, the head of New York City-based Muss Development and Connecticut's Foxwoods Catskills Resort, unveiled the plans Monday night at Liberty High School in Sullivan County.

Semola says the plans include a casino, sports complex, 400-room hotel, town houses and a 27-hole golf course. The developers want to build the $400 million resort on 1,200 acres adjacent to the old Grossinger's resort site.

Other developers are vying to build a casino in the Catskills, including the operators of Connecticut's Mohegan Sun casino.

Other potential casino sites include the Southern Tier and the Albany-Saratoga area.
