Legoland de­vel­oper must re­vise im­pact state­ment

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - OBITUARIES -

The town Plan­ning Board has voted unan­i­mously to re­turn a draft en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact state­ment to the de­vel­oper of a Legoland amuse­ment park for more work.

The Times Her­ald-Record of Middletown said the Goshen Town Board at its meet­ing on Thurs­day night asked Mer­lin En­ter­tain­ments to fur­ther ad­dress the is­sues of traf­fic, peak vol­umes, noise pol­lu­tion, pedes­trian and bi­cy­cle traf­fic, and air qual­ity. The board said Mer­lin hasn’t ad­dressed those is­sues to the point where the state­ment could be re­leased to the pub­lic and agen­cies.

An at­tor­ney for Mer­lin said the de­vel­oper will re­spond and re­sub­mit a new im­pact state­ment.

The pro­posed amuse­ment park is to be built on 153 acres and also in­cludes plans for a 250room ho­tel. It’s based on the pop­u­lar plas­tic con­struc­tion toy.
