The effort between the New York Islanders and Nassau County to keep the Islanders where they belong started back in 2003. Given the financial position of the County, the Islanders developed a plan to fund the transformation of the Coliseum. This plan, which came to be known as the Lighthouse, included additional development necessary to fund the construction and other expense of a new home for the Islanders.

Without this, the Town of Hempstead’s "new vision" looks to be economically unviable for both the developer and owner of the site.

Update: Sure enough, Kate Murray plans a press conference Monday a.m., announcing scaled-down zoning plans.

"And finally, know this: Brooklyn is very much in play. Queens is very much in play, although it’s a close second to Brooklyn now. Suffolk is not a serious option. The Islanders will not leave the New York metropolitan area during this generation or the next one."

>>from Chris Botta's latest assessment of the Lighthouse Project. Just thought that was worth capturing and sharing with followers of other teams. Here's hoping...
