WOODBURY - Today is the deadline for developers to submit proposals for the scaled down Nassau Coliseum project, according to Newsday.

Instead of housing up to 18,000 seats, the new Nassau Coliseum would seat as few as 8,000 to 12,000 people.

The change allows builders to use some of the parking area for new development.

The Dolan family owns a controlling interest in MSG and Cablevision. Cablevision is the parent company of News 12 Long Island.
