Study: Pennsylvania Resort Impact Minimal - Thursday 9th of March 2006

PENNSYLVANIA – As reported by the Tribune Democrat: "A new study emphasizes that Seven Springs Mountain Resort's plans for a 500 slot-machine casino would cater mostly to existing clientele and would not radically transform the resort or the countryside that surrounds it.

"'This is not going to change who we are or what our guests have come to love about Seven Springs,' resort President Scott Bender said. 'And, because it's an additional amenity to our guests, we do not anticipate many issues, or even a lot of change.'

"Seven Springs is one of two resorts in the state that have applied for two available $5 million licenses designated for resorts. If both prove eligible, each should gain a license.

"…The study focuses mostly on transportation systems.

"…Officials say that significant tax revenue and economic growth would stem from a casino at the resort, which already is among the largest area employers…"
