Group To Renovate Coliseum Area
OBSTACLES STILL REMAIN: Nassau County officials said that a “new request for proposals will be needed to determine whether other ballpark operators could offer a better deal than” Atlantic League CEO & Long Island Ducks Owner Frank Boulton, who is part of the Lighthouse Group. Reckson CEO Scott Rechler said that he “doubts anyone else could put a stadium on the Mitchel Park site -– because his company controls the surrounding parking.” County officials added that the New York state Legislature “may need to approve any deal for a private ballpark, since Mitchel Park is dedicated parkland” (NEWSDAY, 3/16).
