Land Acquired By Town In Hampton Bays For Future Waste Treatment Facility

The best part is how surprised the Town Board will be when 200 people with lawyers in tow show up at the public hearing to rail against the proposal.

That mini facility on the E. side of the canal for the condo's brought out about 80 protesters and 2 years of litigation.

Can you imagine the entire population of Tiana Shores shrieking at the top of their lungs?" Jul 12, 18 9:19 AM

One more thing--the proposed facility is located only a few hundred yards from the planned boundary line of the new Village of East Quogue.

I wonder if this will have any impact on the incorporation effort where Tiana Shores residents won't have to pay out of pocket, but instead use Village Taxpayer dollars to keep Southampton Town in court for the next decade?

Hmmmm....?" Jul 12, 18 9:24 AM

Better go back and read the article.

This isn't water treatment--its sewage treatment..

Big difference!" Jul 12, 18 1:14 PM

Lawmakers, Environmentalists Push To Close Sand Land Because Of Water Contamination

Selective enforcement is right!

Reason there are 100 guys standing around is because there are 100 pcik ups, Range Rovers, vans, etc. pulling to the curb and waving them inside.

Love to see one of those people slapped with cuffs and put in a cage in an ICE detention center." Jul 17, 18 6:34 AM

Planners Recommend Extensive Review Of Proposed Wainscott Commercial Center

The EH Town Board has the power to acquire the property through eminent domain for exactly the type of uses you suggest.

They could issue a bond to fund it, or establish a special assessment district where the cost could be assessed over property taxes over the next 30 years. Wainscott has some of the lowest property taxes in NYS.

Of course, all this will require tremendous public pressure, and the people will retreat in apathy and probably fail to step up to the plate.

We shall see..." Sep 12, 18 6:00 AM

Community Members Speak Against Town Purchasing Bel-Aire Cove Motel In Hampton Bays

Easier said than done.

This could bounce around the court system for the next 10 years.

Courts are reluctant to haul families with children out of their homes
unless there are clear health and safety violations.

Owners could put bandaids on the place and squabble with the Town over the c/o and use indefinitely." Sep 26, 18 4:45 PM

I agree.

Anyone remember those squalid cottages next to Sears Bellows park?

About 10 yrs. ago, Town purchased the property, re-located the families, razed the structures and turned it into a passive park.

Same thing could be done here. Needs public pressure!!

Hey, there's an election coming up..." Sep 26, 18 4:47 PM

Proposed Parking Requirements Draw Broad Support From Montauk Residents

How to destroy your home town and quality of life in 4 easy steps:
1. Relax or eliminate zoning ordinances
2. Encourage dirtbag operators from NYC to come in and take quiet businesses and turn them into noisy clubs attracting slimy patrons to destroy your peaceful summer enjoyment
3. Celebrate all the transient bar jobs that end at Labor Day with employees sleeping in their cars or packed 20 in a house
4. Watch the dirtbag operators stuff their pockets with catch and laugh as they leave town with their garbage left for you to clean up
" Oct 10, 18 9:03 AM

"This depends on what you consider to be quality of LIFE."

Exactly correct--we're in complete agreement!

I won't go down to Ft. Lauderdale or Seaside Heights and tell them to shut down their nightlife.

If that's your "quality of LIFE--go there. Don't bring it here!" Oct 10, 18 9:50 AM

Contractor Accused Of Falsifying Pyrrhus Concer House Bid In Southampton Village

I'm glad at least Southampton Village, one of the wealthiest communities in the

country, supports local contractors who are licensed, insured, have strong local

South Fork Commuter Connection Launches Monday Despite Morning Storm Delays

It will take a while to catch on--but it will.

In another few weeks we will be welcoming back those special mornings when HB is gridlock, and it takes 1 hr 45 min to get to SH village. The icing on the cake is when you're sitting by the college watching the shuttle whiz past.

Hope some of those smiling passengers hurtling by take the time for a friendly wave..." Mar 4, 19 4:30 PM

I haven't driven by, but may be a constrained lot with very little upland area that would have a limited footprint in or to comply with DEC regs.
