Dear Tuxedo Resident:


I’m pleased to report that the Final Scoping Document for the environmental review of the Sterling Forest Resort and Casino is now available (click on documents below).


At a special meeting on Monday, August 18, 2014 at the Town Hall, the Town Board will consider the Final Scoping Document.  This is our chance to hear from the professionals who redrafted the document in response to the extensive input we received from the public.


Please note that the special meeting is not a public hearing.  Accordingly, the Town Board will not receive public comments on Monday night.  We do, of course, look forward to your robust participation as we move forward with the environmental review.


Once a Final Scoping Document is adopted, the intensive work of studying the proposed project and its potential impacts can begin.  The Final Scoping Document will serve as a roadmap during that process as the project applicant prepares a detailed, substantive and comprehensive draft environmental impact statement (DEIS).  The DEIS will be subject to further scrutiny by the Town Board and the public, with opportunities for comment at a public hearing and/or in writing.


Thank you for your active participation in this important process.  We will continue to update you throughout.
