RYE - Westchester has set a deadline for May 1 for nonprofit Sustainable Playland to make a decision on the future of its project with the amusement park.

One of the main issues is who will take over as lead agency in the environmental review process. Both Westchester County and Rye are vying for the title, and new concerns from the city have brought the project to a standstill.

Sustainable Playland has spent the past three years and at least $600,000 to turn the park into a year-round attraction. The park is set to open on May 10.

Westchester County Board Chair Mike Kaplowitz and Sustainable Playground President Kim Morque appeared on this weekend's Newsmakers on News 12 to discuss the issues surrounding the project.
