Casino Comment Day in Poughkeepsie

Tuesday, September 23, 2014 - 8:00am - 8:00pm

The Grandview

176 Rinaldi Blvd.

Poughkeepsie, NY


This is one of three public comment events in September (the others are in Albany and Ithaca) to provide opportunity for members of the public in each eligible region to comment before the Board in support of or opposition to any particular applicant’s proposal within the respective region. Each event will take place from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. to accommodate participation from those who have varying availability. In each region, the Board purposefully selected large, accessible venues located in counties and municipalities where no casino applicants have proposals.

Participation:  These public comment events are free, open to the public and do not require advance registration. 

To allow diverse participation, the Board respectfully requests interested grassroots groups or formally constituted organizations designate a single representative to address the Board to avoid repetition.

Time permitting, additional members of such groups or organizations may address the Board on a first-come, first-served basis.

Length: To ensure fairness, individual comment segments will be limited to five (5) minutes each. 

Comment Segment Reservations:  Five time slots per hour will be held for speaking time reservations.  To reserve a segment for a public comment event, members of the public should email their name, organization (if applicable) and desired time request to the following email address (for the September 23 Catskills/Hudson Valley event in Poughkeepsie):   [email protected]
