    Another local group have been defeated as they try and stop the themepark being built.

    A judge has rejected a petition calling for a public referendum on the town of Goshen selling land to Merlin Entertainments Group for the creation of a Legoland theme park.
    Legoland New York spokesman Phil Royle declined to comment on Brand’s ruling but issued a statement that read: “The sale of the lots will provide income to the town of Goshen, will be added to the tax rolls, and Legoland New York will donate two wells that the town of Goshen could use to address water concerns in the Arcadia Hills community.”

    LEGOLAND New York is confirmed as official and had a break-dropping ceremony last week to promote the new park set to open in 2020. The video below shows off some clips of officials talking about the park mixed with some preview graphics of the park as well.

    Good News for LEGOLAND New York

    A planning board in Goshen, about 60 miles north of New York City, approved a site plan Thursday to build a $500 million theme park based on the construction toy, which would open in 2019.
    Town officials are seeking to block the referendum, which would be held in December if their efforts fail. They’ve said a referendum wouldn’t stop the project, just modify it slightly, the Times Herald-Record reported.

    The Goshen Village Board voted unanimously to sign an agreement with Merlin Entertainments Group to supply water and sewer service for its proposed LEGOLAND New York theme park. The theme park is close to obtaining necessary permits to begin construction on a 521.95-acre site, consisting of 15 total parcels that are located off Harriman Drive.

    The Goshen Town Board has approved crucial zoning changes to allow the Legoland New York project to proceed. The zoning changes modify the town’s comprehensive plan to allow commercial development on the site of the planned theme park. The next step is Legoland has to go back to the Planning Board, which would then work toward site plan approval and permits.

    Update:

    The proposed $500 million Legoland New York theme park took another step forward Thursday when the town planning board voted its OK of a local law that would permit what the town is calling a “commercial recreation facility” on the site where Legoland’s developer wants to build. The vote was 5-0 with one planning board member, Diana Lupinski, recusing herself.
    Bergus said the Findings Statement could be ready as soon as Aug. 17. That Findings Statement would list any measures Legoland must take to mitigate any potential negative effects identified in the environmental review process. Once the town board finishes its work, the focus would shift back to the planning board, which would then move toward site plan approval and permits. Pending approvals, Merlin would like to start construction this year and open the park in 2019.

    More meetings and votes this week bring it closer to reality but not without local residents opposing the plans still

    GOSHEN – The proposed $500 million Legoland New York theme park cleared a key hurdle Thursday when the town Planning Board voted 5-1 to accept the project’s Final Environmental Impact Statement.
    About 200 people packed Orange County’s Emergency Services Center’s auditorium for Thursday’s session, which was not a public hearing. Still, opponents booed and laughed when board members cited portions of the FEIS that said traffic would not be impacted, given Legoland’s proposed highway improvements, and water supplies would be adequate.
