WATERFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut has announced plans for its first shoreline state park in 50 years, but a developer who had a contract for the land is asking the state to reconsider.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said Tuesday about 32 acres in Waterford known as “Seaside” will become a park.

The state said it will terminate a contract to sell Seaside to developer Mark Steiner, who won changes in zoning regulations and recently restricted his plans to luxury housing. Malloy said state officials have given the developer “more than enough time” to put his plans into effect.

But Steiner’s attorney Lewis Wise said Wednesday his client’s project has been delayed by local zoning appeals he has been working “diligently” to resolve. He also said the state didn’t give Steiner the required default notice. He said he’s considering legal action.
