BLOOMING GROVE - Both the town and village boards of Blooming Grove have approved a concept to build a casino along Route 208.

Village of South Blooming Grove Mayor Robert Jeroloman says the plan would create thousands of jobs and bring in millions of dollars in tax money. Cordish Companies and Penn National Gaming say they want to build a gaming complex similar to ones they operate in other states, including two in Maryland.

Jeroloman says logistics, including potential traffic problems, will need to be worked out.

Blooming Grove is one of several locations in New York being considered by the state for one of four gaming licenses now being offered.
