Southampton Town Board Members Agree: Tuckahoe Center Not Likely To Be Approved

Please, second home owners if they shop at all they shop at Citarellas or Schmist's and lets not forget Catena's. the last place they would go is a shopping center.As far as the year round local they go to Riverhead i hear the town is looking for redevelopment of the Flanders River Side area I'm the residents will welcome Mr Morrow with open arms. " Feb 1, 17 10:42 PM

Mr Morrow and his developer friends should go to Flanders/ Riverside area, where they would be welcomed. I'm the town would give him a green light to build what they would like and make a large profit as well. " Feb 1, 17 10:52 PM

I was referring to the developers consultants, from up the island. Not the town and the study you are referring to, and if that study was done during ATH's tenure I don't trust the data. As we all know she never met a development she didn't like." Feb 1, 17 11:07 PM

I would agree with you I think that area is a lost cause in more ways then one. I don't think redevelopment can work in the way residents invitation. I find it funny though, that the area of the town that has contributed the least amount of money to the CPF found has a lot of preserved land. " Feb 2, 17 1:22 AM

PDD Law Could Be Fully Repealed, Southampton Town Officials Say

This is great News! Any zone change, should be granted with a super majority vote by the town board. People should keep in mind the PDD law came about before the CPF law, hanse since CPF adoption, developers have used PDDs to sweat the land to make a bigger profit due to build-able land becoming less and less. " Feb 14, 17 2:58 PM

If it were not for CPF the only open spaces we would have would've been golf courses and a handful of farm stands. PDDs, however, have been ABUSED by developers. If we have more high density that mimics UTI people won't come here. I think the town should have stepped in and limited the amount of homes & condos that have been built in recent years."

Tuckahoe Center Change Of Zone Application Is Withdrawn By Developers

You are right, no one gets a job from a poor person. If developers to have free rain the east end would look like points west and there would be no farms and open space left. Judging by the new Audi dealership and the restoration of the old library I would say I would say Capitalism is alive and well on the east end. " Apr 18, 17 11:08 PM

Zoning laws are put in place for a reason CR 39 has been over built time and again, bad planing prevailed. I am not against change, I am for growth with guidance. You should know that this zone change is president setting that is why people don't want it. Also, to your point if there are vacancies on main street then why would you build a shopping center on CR 39 wouldn't you want to have a vibrant downtown? The fact is thee have always been seasonal stores in the village and I suspect that most if not all of the stores will be filled by summer. Large shopping centers are dieing this is just a case of property owners trying to make money at the expense of everyone around them. they are just 20 years to late " Apr 19, 17 11:17 AM

Try Costco." Apr 19, 17 11:22 AM

I am not in anyway defending Stop & Shop, we live in a wealthy seasonal community hanse why you will never get a affordable supermarket. Even if the center gets built, whom ever goes in there will jack up prices and it won't be any less expensive then Stop & Shop. I have family who lives up state and they have to travel further to go to the store most people in this country do especially out side the tri state area. I don't see anyone starving in the streets in Southampton." Apr 20, 17 10:50 AM

If there was a demand, those stores would have never closed. More people really? More alternative facts, Just because some of the city people stay into October doesn't mean that the east end is a year round community." Apr 20, 17 11:36 AM

Either way, a new shopping center does not mean affordable shopping as I said in my previous post. The East End is a Summer Resort Community!! Yes there are some retieres and people who use there homes on the weekend weather permitting. Your argument are based purely on emotion instead of building new why doesn't the developer buy out the lease on the CVS or Rite Aid and invest in those properties if he's so concerned about everyones dietary needs? I would support that 100%" Apr 21, 17 5:15 PM

Again, with due respect, you do not read my comments in there entirety. I would have No! problem with someone coming in and returning Rite Aid or CVS back into a grocery store Just like The Citarella building was formally a grocery store. Shopping centers are dining. The simple case here is you have greedy property owners who will stop at nothing to get their way and they really don't care about you me or anyone else as long as they get theres.

New Zoning Law Approved In Southampton Village

So the Village should let people do what ever they want? I for one don't want to see whats left of the village turn into The Jersey Shore. " Apr 22, 17 4:53 PM

Tuckahoe Center Change Of Zone Application Is Withdrawn By Developers

People, maybe be using there homes beyond the summer season i.e. retirees ect ect.... but once the temporture droops below 50 degrees they are on there way to to Florida. More people should really understand what this area would look like if it was not for the conservation efforts of the land trust and CPF founds It would probably look like Seaside New Jersey. I am assuming due your stance on development you would be ok with that. " Apr 25, 17 2:05 PM

"This place isn't as beautiful as it used to be" gee I wonder what this place would've looked like without CPF or the Land Trust. My guess is the alternative is what you would want? it is people with a mind set like yours that don't full realize how fortunate you are to live here. You can't always have your cake and eat it too. " Apr 25, 17 8:27 PM

You are right and guess what a Shopping Center on 39 WILL NOT CHANGE THAT!" Apr 27, 17 9:22 PM

Two Southampton Village Trustees Will Battle For Mayor's Seat On Friday

There is not going to be a centralized system, its to expensive. Irving is proposing smaller pod systems i.e. allowing several buildings to hook up to one small system then property owners in the downtown to share in the cost." Jun 14, 17 5:40 PM

Michael Irving Elected Southampton Village Mayor Friday Night; Hattrick, McGann Keep Their Seats

Mr. Epley, was never backed by the Association and he was in office for 12 years. TIME FOR CHANGE! By the way, "YAz" went around and put yard signs on lawns without the home owners permission. He never learned that thinking you are entitled doesn't get a person far." Jun 17, 17 8:59 AM

Southampton Town Board Repeals PDD Law On Tuesday

Am i missing something here? East Hampton is doing just fine and they never had a PDD law in place. CPI where was the community benefit? no one has yet to explain that to me. Sandy Hollow is to much density if they had cut the number of units in half, I think the public would have been fine with it. " Jul 12, 17 11:38 AM

Still No Decision On Picnic Area Lawsuit, As Beachgoers Park And Party As Usual

I would go further i suspect this homes were built in the late 80's early 90's. why didn't the people who use the picnic area lobby the village to keep that area free of any construction during the 1980's? Bigfresh i tend to agree with a lot of your posts please give me some answers. " Jul 12, 17 11:53 AM

Yes, however if there was no homes on that end of Meadow Ln. no one would care if the public drove on the beach. " Jul 12, 17 9:53 PM

Oh please, there is no homes on the HB side of the inlet I say its the best spot for beach driving. " Jul 13, 17 11:47 PM

Southampton Village Mayor Says He Wants A Ban On Mylar Balloons

Seems like most of the opposition to this ban is coming from Hampton Bays Residents. I'll tell you what, why don't people bring a bunch of Mylar Balloons to the St Patricks Day Parade next year and then we'll see that goes." Jul 27, 17 12:06 PM

The fact is HB does not have any ocean front homes. If you did you would realize what the eastern half of SH goes though. " Jul 27, 17 4:27 PM

Concerns Raised Of Inside Baseball Being Played Within Southampton Village Boards

Yes Please explain? Are you aware that the ethics committee has not met in 10 years? Gee I wonder why that was. " Sep 20, 17 8:18 PM

That is not true. not all of them are members. I don't think you realize how much money the association gives to the Village. They even gave money to the Village Ambulance barn for a new building." Sep 21, 17 8:15 PM

Why is that? Because the working, local familys who once lived in the Village sold there homes to Spec builders. They took the money and ran. I can't blame gem for that, However it all comes down to greed to some degree." Sep 21, 17 8:33 PM

Thy get paid a stipend Granted it is probably not much but please to say that they volunteer is a false statement." Sep 21, 17 10:42 PM

Southampton Town Considering Buying Part Of Tuckahoe Center Property With CPF

Really the tax roll argument? First the property in question has been abandoned for close to two decades so i can't imagine the person/LLC that owned it payed much in tax. second, most of the ocean front in Hampton Bays was preserved by the State county. The clubs that were shut down thanks you ATH buying peoples votes. Lastly, CPF bought the building rights to the Topping farm the family still owns the land and STILL PAYS TAX ON IT!" Oct 13, 17 2:37 PM

The property was abandoned, probably didn't pay much taxes anyway. Ever think of that? i agree maybe this is not the best way to move forward but what was proposed in terms of Tuckhoe Center was to big. Oh commercial property pays a much lower rate then a private residents don't fool yourself. " Oct 13, 17 2:43 PM

Public Hearing Set For Discovery Land Subdivision In East Quogue

So we should let developers do whatever they want? HMM i guess you think it would be ok with you if the east end becomes another Jersey Shore. How about some 30 story condos on Dune Rd. Clearly, you don't understand what a special the east end is if you are willing to sell whats left of it to the highest bitter." Jan 12, 18 1:07 AM

i'm not suggesting we should have no development just smart development. 5 ace zoning and up zoning areas is Smart! Furthermore, ,I for one would be for promoting water front resort dinning in HB is a great idea but the town stupidly voted for 37 condos. " Jan 12, 18 11:49 AM

Trustees' Battle Over Lettered Roads Continues In Southampton Village

Bigfish, why isn't SABA fighting for more access in other parts of the town? I firmly believe in the publics right to access the beach It should not be all on the village to provide access to all 50,000 residents of the town.

Also, since the town trustees dropped the ball in regards to Rose Hill RD witch they did big time! how can you expect them to maintain the letter roads in the village?" Jul 8, 18 9:19 PM
