East Hampton Hamlet Study Presentations Lined Up For Next Month

May 8, 2017 12:58 PM

The consultants hired by East Hampton Town to help guide the long-term planning of each of East Hampton’s unincorporated hamlets will present their recommendations about how the town should help the hamlets evolve over the coming decades early next month.

The consultants, the Massachusetts firm Dodson & Flinker, will present the first round of recommendations on the Springs and East Hampton area at Town Hall on Thursday, June 1, at 3 p.m.

On Friday, June 2, the Town Board will hold a special meeting at Town Hall at 10 a.m. at which the consultants will present an overview of their findings and recommendations for each hamlet.

At 7 p.m. on June 2 the consultants will present their recommendations for Montauk, at the Montauk Fire Department headquarters.

On Saturday, June 3, they will present their recommendations for Wainscott at 9 a.m. at LTV Studios. And at 1 p.m. they will present their Amagansett recommendations at the Amagansett American Legion.

The consultants held a series of public forums and walking tours in each of the hamlets last spring and fall, exploring with residents where each hamlet struggled with traffic, blight, poorly designed development and the potential for overdevelopment.

The consultants are expected to present the Town Board with a package of recommendations for new zoning and use laws that will help it create the legal conditions to allow smarter redevelopment over the next 40 to 50 years.

Scary stuff..."help it create the legal conditions to allow smarter redevelopment over the next 40 to 50 years."

Given the "master plan" developed years ago by a select few in the dark days of winter, people should pay close attention to more "consultants" deciding the future.

Let's make East Hampton a vibrant, night time place to stroll. Right now most places close early even in the middle of summer.
