The proposed $425 million Tyre casino will cost us our town’s heritage and future. Short term, it will create enormous traffic congestion and massive construction noise and pollution. Long term, it will drastically change the character and natural beauty of our community. It will bring no new state tax revenue, while leaving residents beholden to an out of town developer who only wants to use our land to enrich himself.

The developer and town officials have kept secret much of the negotiations over the proposed casino. It’s exactly this kind of backroom, wheeling dealing that comes with commercial casinos, opening the door to even greater corruption here in a community that has for generations relied on trust and transparency.

Our way of life is special. And we know that Tyre and the surrounding areas need jobs and economic growth. But this casino is NOT the answer. It ignores careful community planning and the town’s recently completed comprehensive blueprint for the future that focuses on protecting agriculture, open space and sustainable commercial development.

This casino is an assault on rural communities likes ours. If it’s built, we will lose control of our own community and everything that makes it special. Please join us in telling the politicians to STOP THE TYRE CASINO!!
