A state-owned seaside hotel Connecticut cannot afford

On July 6 the Yankee Institute for Public Policy published an article about the former Seaside Regional Center hospital in Waterford, CT, which closed in 1996. The state legislature and then-Gov. Jodi Rell authorized the sale of the state property to raise money for the 2010 state budget. The property was to be sold to Allied Development Group for $8 million, and they would then turn the property into a seaside hotel and public park, employing about 300 people for construction and operation of the facility.
