Supervisors from Brookhaven and Islip, Suffolk County’s two largest towns, said the process to approve a $1.1 billion sports arena development in Ronkonkoma was so “fatally flawed” that county officials need to cancel the agreement to build it, Newsday reported. A developer selected in April, Ronkonkoma Vision Project LLC, claimed they were actively building a sports area near Seattle, but officials there said “no substantive work” had been done since 2015. Ronkonkoma Vision Project partnered with Jones Lang LaSalle to build a 17,500-seat arena, 500-room hotel, housing and a medical research office with restaurant and retail space. [Newsday]
