    At these gates, coming soon will be nearly 800 construction workers to enter the future home of LEGOLAND New York!

    Hundreds of press and future team members will get their first impression of our park before we open in 2020!

    Legoland opponents won a round in court Tuesday when a judge issued a temporary restraining order stopping tree-clearing at the roughly 500-acre site.
    In his court papers, Ian Sarjeant, senior project director for Legoland development, said if tree-clearing does not continue during January, the opening would be delayed until spring 2021. That’s because site-clearing is only allowed between Nov. 1 and March 31 to protect roosting areas for two species of bats.

    And Sarjeant said a delay would likely increase the cost of the park due to construction cost inflation. Sarjeant said to open in spring 2020, Merlin must start construction of the main buildings by April. Therefore, site-clearing of approximately 95 acres must be completed no later than April 1.

    Construction has officially begun!

    Legoland started site-clearing work Wednesday for its $500 million theme park, with permits from the Town of Goshen and two state agencies posted at its newly constructed main gate on Harriman Drive.

    There have been further issues with planning licenses for LEGOLAND but it looks like they have a lot of weight behind them now.

    No site clearing has been done yet. The five-month window for site clearing opened Nov. 1, under state and federal regulations designed to protect two species of bats.
    In another new development, Sen. Chuck Schumer has stepped into the complex approvals process, calling on the Army Corps of Engineers to expedite approvals for the Legoland New York park. The Corps of Engineers is involved because there are wetlands on the site. The Otterkill flows through the east side of the site and there is a pond
    Schumer, D-N.Y, wrote Col. Thomas Asbery, commander of the New York District Corps of Engineers, urging the corps to “promptly review” Legoland’s application and issue the necessary wetland permits “if appropriate.” In his letter, Schumer emphasized the anticipated jobs and economic benefits Merlin Entertainments, Legoland’s parent, has promised.

    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.
