Preston wetlands commission closes public hearing on proposed RV park

Following the final three-hour session late Tuesday, the commission closed the public hearing on the application by Maryland-based Blue Water Development Corp. for the RV park and campground resort on 65 acres of land owned by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation. The wetlands commission will begin deliberations on the wetlands permit application at its April 12 meeting at Preston Plains Middle School. The Planning and Zoning Commission will hold its second public hearing session March 22 at 7 p.m. at Preston Plains Middle School. The project now would have 280 campsites, a welcome center, two bathhouses, a swimming pool and volleyball, tennis, squash and bocce areas. Roads and parking areas would be gravel-based, except near the welcome center, which would be paved. The commission closed the hearing without discussing the request to extend the hearing again. Heller said reports by experts submitted to the commission show that the project would not adversely impact Avery Pond and the wetlands.
