Dear Tuxedo Resident:
I would like to thank all of you who participated in the public scoping session Thursday evening, July 31, for the proposed Sterling Forest Resort and Casino. The Board appreciates your thoughtful comments and respectful presentations.
The Town’s technical consultants are now reviewing the transcript of the meeting and all written comments received during the public comment period ending August 4th. This review will help assure that the final scoping document properly reflects your concerns.
We hope to have the final scoping document ready for consideration by the Town Board at a special meeting to take place at Town Hall on August 18 at 7 PM. The document will be available online and at the meeting. The final scoping document will serve as a roadmap for the project applicant to prepare a detailed, substantive and comprehensive draft environmental impact statement (DEIS). The DEIS will be subject to scrutiny by the Town Board and the public, with opportunities for comment at a public hearing and/or in writing.
This process will lead to the preparation and completion of the final environmental impact statement (FEIS) to inform decision-makers and the public before a final decision on the proposed development is made.
We will continue to update you and look forward to your continued participation as we take the next steps in the SEQRA process for this major project.
Supervisor Michael Rost
