Mashantucket Tribe seeks to develop former park
The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation of Connecticut is proposing to develop a former park it acquired in a land swap.

The tribe wants to use the 78-acre former Indiantown Park and other parcels it owns for a "resort commercial cluster district," The Norwich Bulletin reports. A total of 187 acres are at issue.

The proposed rezoning would allow the tribe to develop something along the lines of a water park and a resort. The tribe has signed a deal with Great Wolf Resorts for such a project.

The land is located in the town of Preston. The tribe apparently does not want to have the properties placed in trust.
