Where in the world is MICA? | Letter

Upon receiving MICA’s 2016 Annual Report in the mail recently, I was struck that in this otherwise detailed brochure, therewas no mention of MICA’s plan to construct a building the approximate length of an NFL football field (100 yards) inMercerdale Park. Was this simply an oversight or a willful lack of transparency on MICA’s part? It’s not surprising that manyIslanders still believe MICA’s proposed building will be the same size as the former recycling center. When they understandthat it will be significantly larger, they are surprised and, to a person, oppose the plan.
