Details of Flaum's plan :
Having laid out its plans for a casino resort and pitched its potential benefits to a Woodbury crowd, Caesars Entertainment will do the same thing on Monday as the Woodbury Town Board hosts its own presentation and public hearing on the project — just as its Woodbury Village Board counterparts did on May 22.
Planning documents posted online for “Caesars New York” indicate the project encompasses 116.5 acres of a larger property beside the Harriman Metro-North station, of which only 28 acres would be developed. The resort would include three buildings totaling 800,000 square feet, the tallest of which would be 150 feet high, according to the initial paperwork. The site includes 29 acres of protected wetlands and 14.5 acres of wetlands buffer.
The initial paperwork doesn’t indicate which adjacent parcel Caesars hopes to use for its hotel, which can’t be built on the main site because of a deed restriction. Greg Miller, an executive vice president, has said the company has secured 10.7 acres of Norfolk-Southern property for the hotel.
Caesars and its development partner, Flaum Management, are competing with at least nine rivals for one or two casino licenses New York is expected to issue in Orange, Ulster and Sullivan counties this year. Both the village and town boards in Woodbury must endorse the project for Caesars and Flaum to apply for a casino license before the June 30 deadline.
