Hey everyone. I know we're all gearing up for tomorrow's NHL draft, and the Tavares/Hedman/Duchene arguments have basically dominated the conversation. However, we have two big updates to cover, despite a relatively short post.
Completeness Hearing SCHEDULED
Here we go - the Town of Hempstead has followed through on its promise.
The completeness hearing is officially scheduled for 10:30 AM on Tuesday, July 7. The Town Board will vote on the completeness of the DGEIS and determine whether it is ready for public comments. If this resolution is approved, public hearings will then be scheduled for all to come and voice their views on the Lighthouse (it will probably be a lively back-and-forth like we had on the last thread. Great conversation, guys).
It is imperative that anybody who is able to attend this hearing come out to Town Hall on the 7th. I will have more information as the time nears, but please make an attempt to clear about 2 hours on that day if it's possible.
Also, be sure to email me if you think there are opportunities to do more around this event.
Lighthouse at the Draft Party
Tomorrow's Draft Party may be the most-attended event of its kind in professional sports history, and the Lighthouse is planning a large presence at the Coliseum.
Currently, the Lighthouse has planned many things, including:
Lighthouse Jeopardy, in which teams of 3 can compete to win a prize. Check the details, and register your team as quickly as possible. I think it goes without saying that I would like readers of this site to win.
The Lighthouse Station on the arena floor will allow voters and residents to share testimonials on why they support the project.
The social networking station will allow voters to communicate their support to friends on social networks, and there will be an opportunity to sign up as an official Lighthouse supporter.
If you plan to be at the arena tomorrow, be sure to stop by!
Blog on Hiatus Until Sunday
I'm not attending tomorrow's Draft Party for superstitious reasons, but I hope to see our team move forward. In the meantime, since the Draft is taking up a large portion of everybody's time, the blog is on hiatus until Sunday. Look for the regularly-scheduled postings to resume at that time.
As always, thank you for reading.
