Trump Interested In Playland?

Sounds like Trump's organization is potentially interested in the redevelopment of Playland Park, but so are a healthy number of other companies.  As part of the county's plan to obtain "visionary" proposals for the future of the property, they've held meetings with potential developers to share information.

At a recent one some members of Trump's organization were in attendance, along with Live Nation and other large companies.  The positive side of the plan is that it does not appear that plans for razing the park for residential development are being considered.  Hopefully whatever plan eventually shakes out as the winner will keep the property as a classic amusement park, perhaps blended with another type of popular entertainment venue that will bring fresh blood - and visitors - to Playland.
