RYE - Plans for the future of the Westchester-owned amusement park Playland are at a standstill as both sides can't agree on what should be done.

In a letter to County Executive Rob Astorino, Sustainable Playland says it will not move ahead with a review of the plans until it gets a clear picture on what's expected of them.

"We just think it wise that we look at the big picture, take a step back and get a better understanding of a unified vision for Playland," says Sustainable Playland spokesman Jerry McKinstry.

The group initially pulled back after the city of Rye demanded final say in what happens to Playland.

County Board Chair Michael Kaplowitz says he feels Sustainable Playland is not serious about answering questions about their plans, complicating matters further.

Playland opens for the season May 10.
