12 proposals laid out for future of Rye Playland

With the Westchester County budget stretched thin and Rye Playland losing money, County Executive Rob Astorino (R-Westchester) recently sought proposals on how to improve the park and make it profitable again.

The county received 12 proposals ranging from adding a water park to adding sports fields.

A number of different plans have been attempted to try and make the park profitable, or at least break even, but with mixed success in recent years. Adding to the park's troubles has been a number of recent legal settlements over the deaths of two parkgoers and an employee in the past decade.

A committee will look over the proposals and deliver a report sometime this summer. Astorino says he hopes to make a decision by the end of the year.
