II.              Public Hearings

1.              Notice of Public Hearing to Consider Amending Town Code Chapter 240 (Vehicles and Traffic), Section 240-68 ("Schedule XVIII: Time Limit Parking") to Add 30 Minute Parking Spaces at Amagansett Parking Lot and 72 Hour Parking Restrictions at Amagansett Train Station

COMMENTS - Current Meeting:

The Town Board of the Town of East Hampton held a public hearing in the Town Hall Meeting Room, Town Hall, 159 Pantigo Road, East Hampton, New York, on Thursday, July 5, 2018 beginning at 6:30 p.m. and adjourning at  6:40  p.m.

 

Town Clerk Carole A. Brennan read the Notice of Public Hearing as posted and published as required by law.

 

The following persons spoke at the hearing:

 

David Lys explained the need for this proposed law.  He also explained how the proposal came to be. 

 

Rona Klopman thought the parking lot was going to be done as a whole not segmented like this proposal is.  Is there a problem with the Field property.  Why only ten spots?  The ACAC was looking for a whole row of spaces to be 30 minute.  Councilman Lys should be recusing himself since he owns a business there.

 

Michael Cinque says he would like to have a few more spaces.  His store has been there for over 30 years.  He has gotten plenty of tickets over the years.  He doesn't mind the field remaining green but would like another few spots.  Keep the businesses in mind.

 

There being no further public comment, a  motion was made to close the hearing.

III.              Public Portion

Bonnie Brady from Montauk says that East Lake Drive and 27 has a sink hole.  Someone needs to fix it.  She also spoke about the Gator Site where a tower is proposed.  There are ospreys nesting there.  People in the area need to be notified. She would like to see notification on when Deepwater will be spoke about again.  She also spoke about other issue communicating with Deepwater. 

 

Paul Fiondella spoke about a memo regarding the senior center (FAQ) that he received from Councilwoman Burke-Gonzalez.  He does not think that the discussion on the senior center should be at Montauk.  The center is in EH and the meeting should be in EH.  Kathee says they will meet in both areas.  Paul disagrees. 

 

David Buda spoke about parking on Leeton Road.  He had a picture of the parking area near Dolphin Drive.  There is a need for more parking.  He would like to see where gatherings are in the resolution of adoption.  Mass Gatherings are still spoken about in the code when they are no longer called that.

 

Martin Drew again asked the public to support David Lys during the upcoming primary.  He says that his group is still looking for a property for recreation.  We also need a recreation committee.  There use to be a biking committee but that is no longer in service.
