Schenectady Chamber places bet on local casino

The Chamber of Schenectady County and several business owners formally announced their support for a

The Chamber of Schenectady County and several business owners formally announced their support for a casino proposed by the Galesi Group at the former American Locomotive Co. site.

More than 20 business leaders are on board with a casino in Schenectady because of its opportunity to create jobs, attract visitors and boost economic development in the area.

“We believe that Rivers Casino & Resort is a great opportunity for Schenectady,” said Charles Steiner, president and CEO of the chamber. “The added draw of yet another respected destination in our city will encourage more people to visit our community.”

During a public hearing held Monday evening by the Schenectady County Legislature, officials from the Galesi Group and prospective casino operator Rush Street Gaming said the $300 million casino would create 1,200 permanent jobs.

A majority of local residents who spoke at the hearing said they also support a casino in Schenectady. The Schenectady City Council plans to vote on a resolution of support for the project during their meeting on Monday.

Rotterdam-based Galesi Group is pitching the site for a casino and also has plans to revitalize the location, which sits between Erie Boulevard and the Mohawk River, with apartments, a hotel, restaurants and other amenities. The total price tag for the project is $450 million.

The Board of Directors of the Chamber of Schenectady County unanimously passed a resolution in support of the casino, the chamber announced on Wednesday. Business owners who have also signed on include:
