Nassau County Seeks Private Funds to Rebuild Islanders’ Home

Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano called for proposals to build a new home for the New York Islanders hockey team with private funds, a day after voters rejected using public financing.

Mangano, who lost control of the county’s fiscal affairs to a state oversight board in January, said plans to redevelop the 77-acre site encompassing Veterans Memorial Coliseum must create jobs, add to residents’ quality of life and generate revenue.
