According to the filing, the Department of Housing Preservation and Development is also involved with the project.
LI Herald reports New York Cosmos, a professional soccer team, and Mattone Group have held a community meeting earlier this month detailing their Elmont stadium proposal, which would redevelop the parking lots south of Belmont Park, in Nassau County. The team is one of four groups that submitted plans to the Empire State Development Corp. over the past few years. The $400 million project would include a 25,000-seat stadium, 175-key hotel and commercial-retail.
