Tioga Downs announces plans for expansion

Tioga Downs announced major expansion plans Thursday.

The owners say they will be taking over the Tioga Country Club if they are able to get a full gaming license and become a full-fledged casino.

Our media partner WENY-TV reports that Tioga Downs officials want to make the casino a full destination resort, and plan on building a 10,000 square foot clubhouse if they succeed in getting a full gaming license.

President of Tioga Downs Tom Osiecki says the casino could become a full destination resort.

“The club house that we’re going to build will be nothing short of spectacular,” Osiecki said. “There’s nothing like it in the area.”

Tioga Downs has until the end of June to apply for a gaming license.
