When Sustainable Playland signed an agreement at the end of July with Westchester County to manage Playland Park in Rye, it was given 30 days to submit an improvement plan for the park. But the organization has now been given a two week extension, meaning the plan won’t be in until around Sept. 5.
The plan, which will detail all the major proposed physical changes, will be reviewed by the administration of County Executive Rob Astorino and then submitted to the Board of Legislators for approval. If the board has not approved the plan by Jan. 1, Sustainable Playland can pull out of the deal.
Geoffrey Thompson, a spokesman for Sustainable Playland, said the extension was needed to put all the pieces in place and the plan is expected to be ready by the new deadline.
As the approvals for Sustainable move forward, Board of Legislators Chairman Ken Jenkins is continuing a legal challenge to Astorino’s right to sign the management agreement without board approval.
