Legoland Kansas City plan on the ropes
Written by Robert Niles
Legoland's plan to put its second U.S. theme park in the Kansas City area has suffered a setback, and now might not be realized.Tweet
A Missouri state legislature committee took a proposed tax increment financing plan for the park out of the state's budget, according to a local news report. Now, park investors are looking to Governor Matt Blunt to put the funding back in his supplemental state spending bill, which will be voted on by the legislature next year.
If the governor agrees to do so, the investors and Legoland owner Merlin Entertainment will proceed with park construction this summer. If not, the project appears dead.
Gov. Blunt is expected to respond within the next few weeks.
