GOSHEN – The Orange County Legislature has given its permission for the county executive to sell portions of the former Camp LaGuardia property in Chester and Blooming Grove to different buyers.

The county-owned land, now called the Central Orange Development Area, could be subdivided, said Legislature Chairman Stephen Brescia.

“It’s allowing the county exec’s office to negotiate with more than one buyer,” Brescia said. “Different sections of Camp LaGuardia might be able to sell it in two or three pieces, but it would have to come back to the legislature for a vote if they find different suitors like Great Wolf Lodge or others.”

Great Wolf Lodge is considering development of a waterpark in the property.

One section is suitable for farming.

Any development would require local planning board approval.
