If At First You Don't Succeed: ISC Bullish On Meadowlands
Published December 2, 2002
ISC execs said that they still want to build a racetrack in the Meadowlands Sports Complex, despite not making the NJ Sports & Exposition Authority's "list of finalists to develop" the site of the Continental Airlines Arena, which is set for demolition, according to Sandra Pedicini of the ORLANDO SENTINEL. While area residents and merchants, "worried about noise and traffic, have protested [ISC's recent proposal] vehemently," ISC plans "to continue negotiating" with the Meadowlands. ISC, which began studying the Meadowlands site in '00, "has turned back to a 2-year-old proposal that skeptics say is also doomed." Meanwhile, land owners in other N.Y. metro-area spots contacted ISC last week about developing a racetrack on an alternative site (ORLANDO SENTINEL, 11/30).
