Wetlands public hearing on proposed Preston RV park not done yet

The developer of a controversial proposed 302-unit RV park resort at the junction of routes 2 and 164 abutting Avery Pond described changes to reduce wetlands impacts, but residents at Tuesday’s inland wetlands public hearing remained strongly opposed to the project. Maryland-based Blue Water Development Corp. has proposed the $25 million RV park and campground resort under the name Blue Camp CT LLC, on three parcels totaling 65 acres owned by the Mashantucket-Pequot Tribal Nation. Heller submitted a financial analysis of the project comparing anticipated revenues from the proposed 302 campsites to a reduced 270-unit project. He said Blue Water plans a capital investment of about $25 million, making it financially unfeasible to reduce the number of campsites significantly. The Planning and Zoning Commission will continue its public hearing March 22, also at Preston Plains Middle School, on special exception permits needed for the project in the town’s resort commercial and residential zones.
