GOSHEN - LEGOLAND hosted an open house Thursday to unveil details of its proposed amusement park in Goshen.

The open house revealed that 153 acres of the land will be developed for the park, with the nearest home about 2,000 feet away in Arcadia Hills with a wooded buffer.

LEGOLAND is expected to bring in 800 construction jobs, 500 full-time jobs, 300 part-time jobs and 500 seasonal jobs. There will also be millions in local tax fees, sales tax and room taxes from its hotel.

LEGOLAND hopes to get the green light in March and begin building in April to open by 2019.

Water and traffic are still the two large concerns that need to be resolved before LEGOLAND can seek full approval.
