Nassau Hub Innovation District – Latest Updates
Nassau County Executive Laura Curran has made redevelopment of the Nassau Hub a cornerstone economic development initiative of her administration. Redeveloping the acres of parking around NYCB Live: Home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, and putting the property on the tax rolls is essential to job creation and growing the tax base.
The County’s Economic Development and Planning teams are diligently working to support the County Executive’s vision for a transformational live-work-play district in the heart of the County. A new Nassau Hub Innovation District would consist of housing, office and biotech research space, experiential retail, improved transit and walkable streets, open greenspace, and much more. In August of 2018, the current Coliseum tenant Nassau Events Center, LLC. (operated by BSE Global), announced their partnership with RXR Realty on a $1.5 billion plan that aligns with this vision. In order to move forward with their conceptual plan, several steps must take place. Most immediately, a proposed Second Lease Amendment and Development Plan Agreement must be approved by the Nassau County Legislature. More information about this process has been outlined in this PowerPoint overview: Kick-Starting Nassau Hub Redevelopment. In the coming weeks and months, the developers will be reaching out to local officials and community stakeholders to present their plan. Stay tuned!
“The county is committed to working with our partners in government and the community. This project epitomizes my vision for a real live-work-play district at the Hub and will transform the landscape of Nassau County.” – County Executive Laura Curran

NASSAU COUNTY PLANNING COMMISSION
The Planning Commission’s vision is to oversee the orderly growth and development of the County, seeking to balance economic growth with environmental protection and historic preservation.
The Nassau County Planning Commission is mandated by law to approve subdivision of land within the unincorporated areas of the County and offer recommendations to municipalities on zoning referrals. The Planning Department staff processes and reviews subdivision applications and zoning referrals, and makes recommendations to the Planning Commission. The Department is also charged with advising the County Executive, the County Legislature, and County departments in regard to the physical development of the County.
The Planning Commission consists of nine members appointed by the County Executive. The County charter stipulates that all Commission members must be residents of Nassau County, and that the Commission must include at least one resident from each of the County's three towns. The charter also requires that certain interests 'environmental, business, and minority' be represented on the Commission. The term of office for Planning Commissioners is three years.
