LIDO BEACH - Dozens of proponents for the new Coliseum project rallied today at the Malibu Beach Club in Lido Beach ahead of tomorrow's vote on whether to approve the $400 million project to build a new Coliseum in Nassau County.
The current Nassau Coliseum is an aging sports complex and the major lessee, the New York Islanders, say they will leave when their lease runs out in 2015 without a new facility being approved.
The new Coliseum is not without controversy, if approved, the project would cost each household roughly $58 a year in added property taxes. Something some say is too much for many to bear.
Polls open across the county starting at 6 a.m.
