What was once one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country, has now become nothing more than seasonal. The Catskills still have hope that they can once again become a leader in the tourism industry.

Louis Cappelli has had a vision of how gambling and the Catskills could become one. His vision included a casino, but was much bigger than just that. He also had golf, entertainment, food, a water park, and shopping on his mind.

His dream is close to becoming a reality, but before it does, the plan will need some financial assistance from the state. Cappelli has waited all legislative session long to hear the good news that so far, has not come.

In order for the mega-resort to become reality, legislators will have to sign off on the deal. Local officials are behind the plan that would involve Monticello Raceway. The race track has the right to operate video gambling terminals.

While local officials are behind the plan, legislators have yet to approve it. If it does not happen before the end of the session, it could become just another in a long line of failed ideas involving bringing gambling to the Catskills.

Cappelli and track owner Empire Resorts have already given the plan to legislators, and are now just waiting on an answer. "It would be simply impossible to move ahead with the project without this sort of assistance," he said.
