Nassau County, N.Y., will ask voters on Monday to consider a $400 million bond issue to rebuild aging Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale and to construct an adjacent minor league ballpark.

Proponents say replacing the outdated coliseum is necessary to keep the National Hockey League’s New York Islanders from leaving Long Island, where they have played since 1972. Team owner Charles Wang has said a new arena would enable the team to stay in suburban New York at least until 2045.
