Slots in the Pocono Mountains

The meetings over the slot licenses started this week. I am not sure how I feel about slots in the Poconos there is good and bad. What ever happens I hope the area retains its small town feel and protects it environment Nature is the real reason so many people are drawn to the mountains lets not forget it. I would hate to see the area turn into Atlantic City.

Only two resorts have applied for slot licenses which will be awarded by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. From what I hear we will know who gets the license just before the winter holidays in December. The two Pocono resorts that are applying for a slot licenses are Mount Airy Lodge and the Pocono Manor Resort.
