Sustainable Playland Plans to Continue Following Parker's Withdrawal of Support

Sustainable Playland Plans to Continue Following Parker's Withdrawal of Support
Westchester County Legislator Catherine Parker (D-Rye) said Tuesday that she was withdrawing her support for Sustainable Playland, Inc., citing concerns over the potential financial impact to taxpayers and other issues.

SPI's plan to revitalize and improve the amusement park has generated a fair amount of discussion - pro and con - in recent months, but in light of Parker's announcement, SPI has quickly come out with a statement that it was continuing its work.

Below is the text from SPI's announcement:
