Haverstraw Nixes Legoland Project

NORTH ROCKLAND, N.Y. -- After weeks of angry complaints and petitions from residents over a proposed Legoland, the Haverstraw Town Board has dropped its interest in the plan.

In a press release sent out earlier this week, Supervisor Howard Phillips said "after hearing the concerns of our residents, we have decided to withdraw our consideration of the Legoland project. While we will continue our efforts to bring new projects to our town in order to provide quality of life amenities and help defray rising costs associated with living in Rockland County, it should never come at the cost of creating hardship or stress for our residents and divide our community," reported lohud.com.

The board's decision came two days after residents packed a town hall meeting, with speakers demanding answers from officials who said they were bound by confidentiality agreements with the developer, lohud.com said.
