to mid-January 2017 and now mid February 2017.

During January 24 Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) Operations Advisory Committee meeting, RIOC Vice President of Operations Shelton Haynes reported that delays in boiler inspection have kept the Sportspark facility from re-opening but that the boiler inspection is scheduled for today. Everything else is ready to go at Sportspark.

As long as the boiler inspection is approved, RIOC anticipates Sportspark re-opening in mid February.

Mr Haynes added that the locker room renovations will not close the Sportspark facility.

Here's the discussion.

Just learned from RIOC President Susan Rosenthal that Sportspark passed the boiler inspection.
