Legoland Water-and-Sewage Approval Spells Goshen Green


On Monday, the Village of Goshen Board of Trustees approved a resolution to provide the proposed Legoland New York theme park with water and sewer service, Legoland announced via press release earlier today. The amusement juggernaut is expected to contribute approximately $900,000 to village revenue per year for its utilities, which will prove essential given Legoland’s plans to construct water rides on-site.

Under the conditions of this resolution, Merlin Entertainment, the company that owns and operates Legoland, will fully fund the development of a well on Goshen property in the Town of Wallkill. This additional water source will prevent impact on the current village supply and accommodate for future growth. 

Legoland’s third U.S. location is set to open by 2019, a $500 million project that precipitated a fierce community debate and is ultimately projected to create 800 jobs.
