Southampton Village Considering Valet Parking To Ease Stress During Summer Months

Where do all the vehicles go when they leave the "parking garage"?

Cruising through the wide boulevards and freeways that criss cross the village center?

UPDATE: Two injured In Double Car Accident On County Road 39

Hills Station road intersection is a death trap! Needs a directional island for right turns in--right turns out only--no more left hand turns onto Sunrise or into Hills Station!

Traffic in and out of those streets can continue on the North Rd--use the safe and underutilized Peconic Bridge overpass--and then use Long View Rd." May 31, 14 6:56 AM

Thirty-Foot-Tall 'Walking Girl' Statue Causing A Stir In Westhampton

Keep the scornful comments coming. Every great modernist--from Manet to Morley has had to endure them from an opinionated public taken out of their comfort zone.
Look closer--can't you see she's laughing at you?" Jun 15, 14 7:16 AM

Starbucks Plans Hampton Road Location; Southampton Mayor Won't Support Store

Wake up people!!

Approvals are needed from Planning and ZBA.
Does Epley serve on either of those boards???

Of course he's "against it"--he's a politician, sticking his finger into the political wind

As long as Starbucks pays their fees, secures their Health Dept permit, and provides the required parking, or pays into the Village parking fund--they'll get their approval.

What's all the fuss about?

Airbnb Opens Doors To A New Type Of 'Hampton Rental'

Wait till one of the "guests" trips on a bar of soap in the shower, and you're frantically searching your homeowners policy to see if that single family residence that you are now actively advertising as a transient hotel all over the internet is covered for liability.

Not that any of those friendly folks from NYC would want to sue you of course" Jul 22, 14 8:38 AM

Civic Association Resurrects Incorporation Talks In Hampton Bays

My brother-in-law lives in Mastic Beach--which incorporated two years ago.
Said it was the best thing that ever happened!!

Hired full time code enforcement to drive out the slum lords--they are now boarding up 1 or 2 houses a week on average.

Property values are up--20%, and they are planning to hire retired law enforcement for their own part-time police force.

The incorporation was revenue neutral--his taxes didn't go up one bit" Aug 4, 14 8:36 AM

Flooding Closes Stretch Of Dune Road Again

“They know there’s a problem, but [county officials] are just trying to figure out how to handle it.”

Two options:
A: Revamp international climate and energy policy and reverse global warming

B: Elevate the roadbed

Mystery Solved: Artist Michael R. Zotos Is Man Behind 'Spontaneous Entities'

When a middle age, middle class "artist trying to give his work more exposure" using public property "in order to truly make his mark" (6 dozen times no less--with more to come!!) he gets a charming promotional write-up in our local paper.

When a twenty something, with baggy pants, and perhaps a bandana comes out with a spray can to "truly make his mark" on public property, he is arrested and given community service.

Of course...the twenty something usually has a slightly darker complexion...." Sep 10, 14 5:36 PM

UPDATE: PSEG Completed Tree Trimming On County Road 39

Let's close the Eastbound Lane for tree trimming in the morning.

Hey...what time of day should we close the Westbound Lane to trim the other side of the street??" Oct 7, 14 10:09 AM

UPDATE: Hampton Bays Football Player Doing Well After Being Airlifted To Stony Brook During Saturday's Game

He probably took a bad hit earlier, and began showing symptoms while on the bench.

Hampton Bays Superintendent Discusses Student Population At Board Meeting

"Rental properties" have to have a rental permit number issued by the Town.
The town inspects those properties to ensure compliance with occupancy codes: i.e. one family per house, no illegal apts, no illegal motel conversions, etc...
When students enroll--they either show proof of ownership--tax bill, or rental permit number which can then be cross checked against Town records by a clerk in an office.

Police: Man Charged With Attempted Rape After Attacking Woman In Hampton Bays

Revised Beach Plum Meadows Proposal Meets Resistance In Southampton Village

Zoning hasn't changed on that parcel for 50 years.
When all those people built and occupied their houses, adding traffic and congestion to the local streets--no study was required.
Now they want a "study" for the last few houses to be built.
Its called the "I got mine" syndrome
Gotta love it..." Dec 2, 14 7:45 AM

Suit Filed In Thwarted Bid To Sell Amagansett Land For Preservation

Town should step in and use its power of eminent domain to condemn the parcel for water protection purposes.
The price of condemnation won't be in dispute--and you won't have a landowner fighting the acquisition in court.

Sagaponack Village Board Tosses Out Application For Single Home

Finally some common sense!
Look at early pictures of W Suffolk and Nassau county--they used to look like Sagaponack.
Not too long ago one could look across the fields and see the ocean from Montauk Hway.
20 years from now we'll be glad this Board was able to protect this important view

UPDATE: Missing Ross School Student And Mom Found Safe In NYC

Can anyone update?" Apr 20, 15 7:28 AM

Concerned Citizens Group Sees Limited Success Three Years After Its Formation

In order to upgrade a community, one can't move forward by waxing nostalgic for an old nuisance (rowdy group rentals), in response to a new nuisance (overcrowded slum housing).

HB represents the largest voting block in the Town!
Dunn just won a sweeping victory to the School Board--now the community needs to draft him to run for Town Board! I predict a big win in Nov.

Uber Arraignments Adjourned To July; Attorney Says Criminal Records Is Biggest Fear For Drivers

I'm glad the Town is getting aggressive and filing misdemeanor charges.

Fines would just be a cost of doing business for a billion dollar company like
Uber. They'd probalby just add a "violation surcharge" to their already overpriced fares.
Sick of "pop up stores" and limo drivers from Brooklyn coming out here to cash in on the summer money out here.

I agree with NSC above--let the local residents buy insurance, develop an app, and keep the money in Town." Jun 15, 15 7:04 AM
