Petition to oppose Penn National’s so called “mini” casino in Caernavon Twp

Against granting a Category 4 license to Penn National Gaming, Inc. for the proposed construction of a Mini-Casino in Caernarvon, Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania

PETITION BACKGROUND
A gambling venue in this location is not in the best interest of our community. It would target the most vulnerable of our residents, create a tax burden on local municipalities to provide the infrastructure needed, and hinder future development more consistent with the values of our residents.
