UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) - Mohegan tribal officials are presenting plans to Preston town officials for redeveloping a former state psychiatric hospital.

The proposed $200 million to $600 million project was the topic of a special meeting of the Preston Planning and Zoning Commission Tuesday night.

That meeting followed an event held earlier in the day at the tribe’s Sky Tower Hotel, where dignitaries including Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and U.S. Rep. Joe Courtney attended an unveiling of the plans for a non-gambling resort.

The proposal for the old hospital grounds includes an indoor water park, a synthetic ski area, outdoor adventure park, hotels, marina and other attractions.

Malloy announced Tuesday the state Bond Commission, which he chairs, will vote on appropriating $10 million to finish clearing the grounds of the former Norwich State Hospital.
