Utilize Haven area for Indian Casino
West Haven’s West River Crossing has 26 acres of waterfront property.
* 200,000 cars pass this location daily with full panoramic views of this site. Close to the crossways of I95 and I91.
* It borders deep water capable of handling ferry boats, etc.
* The site will support a major hotel with docks and offers a full view of New Haven Harbor and Long Island Sound.
* Perfect Location for CT Tribes Third or fourth Casino or gaming operations and entertainment zones.
*A brief history of this location; in the 1600’s this site was a source of Wampum for the tribes that settled in this area (where West River meets Long Island Sound). In the 1700’s the area became a Seaport with a great history of ship building. There are 27 streets in West Haven named after Sea Captains that lived here. A true, SEAPORT, with extensive history. West Haven’s West River Crossing has an original ship building structure similar to the replica build at Mystic Seaport.
*City of West Haven resources, 3 miles of public beach, the largest in the State. Once the home of Savin Rock Amusement Park.
*Note-State Statue Sec. 2303, The city of West Haven had legalized Gambling Laws, 4 years of Legal Gambling from 1927-1930.
*Also there is additional waterfront land available for development in West Haven.
I believe if the developers of The Havens Project and the Tribal Fathers in concert could look hard at this site and its many advantages, they mutually could see this as a very desirable spot for a Casino or other gaming venues and entertainment zone.

I’m hoping I can take this format to send a HUGE thank you to all the West Haven community, who have just helped our mother Katherine S. Held celebrate her 105th wonderful birthday at home. Helping make this milestone happen: First Church and her church family; West Haven Garden Club members; Companions and Homemakers (of Hamden) for sending us Shournell; Home Instead (also of Hamden) for all their years of caregivers who have graced her front door with smiles and caring visits; and to all the dear friends and neighbors who keep in touch and brighten her days. West Haven will always be remembered as a kind and caring community to us all. You made this a very special week of loving memories for a 105 year old West Haven-born lady!
The family of Katherine Held
