No casino on Mount Tom

To be delivered to Alex Morse, Mayor of the City of Holyoke and Stephen Crosby, Chair, Massachusetts Gaming Commission

Petition Statement

Mount Tom is an irreplaceable natural and economic resource for all of the Connecticut River Valley. Please reject any and all inappropriate developments -- such as the two casino plans -- for this treasure.
There are currently 2,642 signatures. NEW goal - We need 3,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Once again, Mount Tom -- not only an icon of the Connecticut River Valley but one of Massachusetts' most important natural areas -- is being treated as a potential site for intensive commercial development.

Multi-story, brightly-lit buildings and overwhelming traffic should never despoil this keystone of the area's landscape, outdoor recreation, wildlife corridor, and rare species habitat -- a decades-long focus of local, state, federal, and non-profit land conservation efforts.
