Poll: Is Mangano-Wang plan the best option?

Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano and New York Islanders owner Charles Wang have reached a tentative agreement that could give Wang control of the entire 77-acre parcel of county-owned land surrounding Nassau Coliseum, people close to the talks said.

Under the terms of the preliminary deal, Wang would get the site exclusively for a new hockey arena and surface parking -- far less expensive to build than a garage or underground parking -- and no other development, according to two members of the Hub Advisory Committee, which was charged by Mangano to offer options for the project. However, terms of the agreement might still change because of objections to its lack of mixed uses, the sources said.
