Share this article

Town agencies will resume their review of a controversial luxury RV park on 65 acres of land belonging to the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe at the intersection of Routes 2 and 164. It also borders Avery Pond (Connecticut).

According to a report, Blue Water Development Corp. has proposed a campground and RV park under Blue Camp CT LLC on three parcels that will be leased from the tribe.

The proposal has around 300 camping spaces and a welcome center. There will also be three bathhouses, a swimming pool, splash pad, playground, tennis, volleyball, squash, and bocce areas. The plan includes a floating dock and an elevated boardwalk at Avery Pond.

The developer has deemed the location perfect for the proposed RV park.

The resort would be dubbed Bluewater Recreational Campground Resort at Avery Pond.

Todd Burbage, CEO of Blue Water, said the company was informed of the site after Mashantuckets advertised across the country for a resort campground developer for the site.

The plan has been vehemently opposed by residents close to Avery Pond, including two Lynn Drive residents who have requested intervenor status in the town’s review process. They’ve submitted their reports and statements.

The Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Commission will host its third public hearing on the project during its 7:30 p.m. meeting on Tuesday at Preston Plains Middle School before starting its discussions regarding the wetlands permits needed for the project.

It is expected that the Planning and Zoning Commission will start its public hearing on the broader special exception permit at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 23, at Preston Plains Middle School.
