A proposed project that would have a major impact on all of Nassau County will be discussed at a public hearing on Tuesday, Aug. 4, beginning at 9:30 a.m. at John Cranford Adams Playhouse at Hofstra University.
The project, called the Lighthouse Project, which will cost a reported $3.7 billion, entails renovating the Uniondale area to include a renovated Nassau Coliseum, hotels, convention facilities, office space, retail space and residential units.
Attorney General Andrew Cuomo announced that his office has secured $250,000 for customers who were swindled by a company that provided wedding photography and services.
“This is a story of wedding dreams turned into a planning nightmare,” said Cuomo. “This company promised wedding photos, videos and other services, but ended up taking thousands of dollars from couples who were left scrambling to get photos and albums of their special day. Even on the day they closed down, they continued to deceive customers who paid for their services.”
Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray and the Town Board declared that a state-mandated environmental report by the developers of the Lighthouse Project is “ready for public review” at its July 7 meeting. Murray and the board also called an Aug. 4 public hearing on the environmental issues surrounding the proposal to refurbish the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum and develop the 150 acres surrounding the arena.

The occasion was the 3-on-3 contest that actually had a start time of 10:30 a.m. But that didn’t stop the over 20 young people who woke early, rode their bikes and were getting psyched for the second annual 3-on-3 basketball tournament contest sponsored by Assemblyman Tom Alfano.
By 9:15 a.m., over 500 young people were on the courts and lining up to check-in at tables staffed by volunteers. And, at 10:15 a.m. close to 1,000 people were streaming into Dutch. Cars were parked up and down streets. From Western Beef Supermarket to Silver Street and everywhere in between. “I’ve never seen anything like this,” said Mystique Rivera adding, “This is fantastic.”

The Town of Hempstead plans to defend its decision for redevelopment in the Argo Theatre area in Elmont after property owners have filed a lawsuit, claiming the town’s assessment that the property is blighted is not factual.
According to the town, lawyers for the property owners have filed papers in State Supreme Court disputing the designation of the former Argo Theatre location as blighted, among other objections.
