Say NO to the proposed Casino in Forest Hill, Richmond VA
This petition is to fight the proposed Casino in Stratford Hills (this is one of three being considered, origanally there were six).
What makes this site particularly abhorrent is it is in a neighborhood that runs a long the James River. We are also concerned for the WILDLIFE IN THE WOODS AND THE WETLANDS behind the Target and Publix, the land that will be clear cut. We certainly do not believe that a wetlands area is the place to put it, should the city get their wish in erecting a Casino. What dire consequences the proposed Casino will have on the lives of all these flora and fauna we desperately need to remain a healthy eco-system. They will be homeless, and quite likely eradicated. Also, this area has great hiking and bike trails.
Additionally, we are terribly concerned that because the projection of the Casino is for nearly 4 million people to visit it every year... our roads and the traffic will be awful.
Thank you for signing.
