A rezoning hearing has been scheduled for the proposed Capital View Casino and Resort in East Greenbush. 

Developer Saratoga Casino and Raceway and Churchill Downs, are looking to create a planned development district for the proposed gambling venue on Thompson Hill Road. The Times Union reports the 152-acre parcel currently is zoned residential buffer. 

A hearing has been set 7 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 23, at the American Legion Hall on Columbia Turnpike.

The East Greenbush casino site is one of four seeking a state license to operate in the Capital Region, the only one facing organized opposition to its construction.  The other sites are in Rensselaer, Schenectady and Schoharie County.
