Hearing to Discuss Plans for Former Norwich Hospital Site Tuesday

Multi-million dollar plans for a new resort on the site of the former Norwich Hospital in Preston are expected to move forward following a Planning and Zoning Commission meeting Tuesday night.

Mohegan Tribal leaders have been discussing building a large entertainment resort on the site of the old Norwich Hospital for some time.

The Preston Redevelopment Authority already endorsed the project, and it was approved by the town of Preston electors at a referendum in March.

Tuesday’s public hearing will be to amend the zoning regulations for the property. This would allow the tribe to build everything from a hotel and shopping complex to a convention center and theme park.

The Day of New London reports that once the plan is approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission, the state can release the $10 million grant pledged to finish the property cleanup.

The hearing tonight will start at 7:30 p.m. at Preston Memorial Veterans Hall.
