"The development of a new sports arena in the center of Nassau County, coupled with the development of Belmont Park in Elmont and the former Navy-Grumman property in Bethpage, is the catalyst Nassau County needs to stimulate our local economy and create thousands of good-paying jobs."
 - Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano

Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano has focused on rebuilding Nassau County's economy by creating private sector jobs and putting people back to work. As a former small business owner, Ed Mangano knows firsthand the challenges New York businesses face because he has faced them too.

To improve the business climate, the County Executive has worked tirelessly to attract homeland security jobs, along with composite manufacturing and film and television industry jobs to the former United States Navy-Grumman Corp. property on the eastern end of Nassau County. In doing so, the County has experienced growth in jobs and increased revenue from these industries. Nearly 15,000 jobs are now on this property.

County Executive Mangano and the Nassau County Industrial Development Agency have approved 13 economic development projects that will create nearly 1,600 new private sector jobs and retain nearly 1,000 permanent private sector jobs in Nassau County. According to Camoin Associates, an independent economic analysis firm, these projects are estimated to generate more than $1.3 billion in economic activity for the local economy.

Building on his efforts to attract new jobs and increase County revenue without raising property taxes, County Executive Mangano created the "Accelerate Nassau Now" plan. Mangano's plan enhances the Hub's present sports and entertainment center by addressing obstacles to

redeveloping the full 77-acres site while adhering to the Town of Hempstead's mixed-use zoning requirements for the property. The County is attracting developers to privately-finance a new Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, minor league ballpark, multi-purpose exposition center, multi-purpose track and field facility, a Bioscience Innovation Center, Research and Development Expo Center and residential housing options.

In order to boost economic development and create jobs on the western end of the County, Mangano developed a plan to establish an Indian gaming casino at Belmont Park. This plan will create thousands of financial sector jobs and significant revenue for our State, County and local community.
