Traditions Says Casino Traffic Should Not be a Concern

The Town of Union Planning Board continues to weigh the pros and cons of allowing Traditions at the Glen to add a gambling casino to its operation:
 
Tuesday night, the Planning Board reviewed some of the progress Traditions says it's making in mitigating concerns about parking, archeological finds and other concerns that new construction would bring.

But some residents we spoke with remain concerned about the increased traffic--that Traditions concedes the casino would generate. 

But according to Traditions ownership, traffic should not be considered a problem for the area:

 
Bill Walsh, Traditions owner said: "...traffic is a good thing, you can talk to any of the businesses that live along Watson Boulevard, they're looking for traffic, they want the community to thrive, having more cars driving by their door, it's nothing but a good thing for the local businesses, so I think that most of the residences through there and the businesses certainly through there, they're welcoming any traffic we can put by their doorstep"
-----------
Lee Spadine, Union resident said: "...another 2,000 cars a day, it's very busy, where we live, we live right adjacent to the casino, and any type of increased traffic will affect our lifestyle, when we want to go out and do things like that. One of our biggest concerns, what happens to that congested area around wegman's and the mall."
 
Town of Union Supervisor Rose sotak says not nearly enough information is in yet for any decision to be made about the casino.  She says a lot more data has to be anaylized, and reviewed.
