Mangano set to make announcement on Nassau Coliseum's future

Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano (R-Nassau) is scheduled to make a major announcement about the redevelopment of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum tomorrow. After years

UNIONDALE - Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano (R-Nassau) is scheduled to make a major announcement about the redevelopment of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum tomorrow.

After years of talk and speculation, Mangano is expected to reveal details about a plan for a world-class sports and entertainment center.

According to civic leader Helen Meittinnis, of the Community Association of Stewart Avenue, her group was not behind the Lighthouse Project originally envisioned for the area, but says it supports a scaled-down version.

It's unclear what the project would cost, but in his State of the County address, Mangano suggested putting it to a referendum, asking taxpayers to decide if they're willing to foot the bill. At the time, he said it could cost around $400 million.
