“Casino Free Tyre”, a group opposed to the proposal for a casino in Seneca County, has responded to Wilmorite, the casino's developer, releasing new designs and a new name for the proposed project.

The group says any casino resort would not lend itself to the town's rural and agricultural character and they will continue to oppose a casino regardless of the theme.

We're told the casino will be called Lago Resort & Casino. Wilmorite says the new resort will cost $425-million. The plan has yet to be approved.
