SECTION I. - FINDINGS AND OBJECTIVES:

 

              This local law adopts a revised "Community Preservation Project Plan" pursuant to Section 64-e of the New York Town Law.  The revised plan supplants the Community Preservation Project Plan which was first adopted by the Town Board on August 4, 1998 and adopted as revised on July 7, 2011 and which continues to list all properties whose preservation is necessary to the preservation of the community character of the Town of East Hampton.

 

              The Town Board would like to amend the plan as most recently adopted on July 7, 2011 to add approximately .5 acres of land reputedly owned by Judith Sneddon & Belinda Sneddon located on 549 Accabonac Rd., Springs, and identified on the Suffolk County Tax Map as 300-124-4-3 for the following reasons:

This parcel is an undisturbed Oak woodland in proximity to 100s of acres of preserved property owned by the County, Town and Peconic Land Trust.  This parcel is within the East Hampton Pine Barrens and a Water Protection District.

This parcel meets the criteria set forth in Town Law 64-e (4) that establishes and helps define what the preservation of community character involves.

 

 

SECTION II. - COMMUNITY PRESERVATION PROJECT PLAN ADOPTED:

 

              For the reasons set forth in Section I hereof, the Town Board hereby approves and adopts the addition of approximately .5 acres of land reputedly owned by Judith Sneddon & Belinda Sneddon located on 549 Accabonac Rd., Springs, and identified on the Suffolk County Tax Map as 300-124-4-3 to the list of Open Space Recommendations in the "Community Preservation Project Plan" prepared by the Town Planning Department and dated July 7, 2011, said plan being intended to constitute, in its revised form, the community preservation project plan which is required by Section § 64-e of the New York Town Law and Article I ("Community Preservation Fund") of the East Hampton Town Code.

 

SECTION III. - SEVERABILITY:

 

              Should any part or provision of this Local Law be decided by the courts to be unconstitutional or invalid, such decision shall not affect the validity of this Local Law as a whole nor any part thereof other than the part so decided to be unconstitutional or invalid.

 

SECTION IV. - EFFECTIVE DATE:

 

              This Local Law shall take effect immediately upon filing with the Secretary of State as provided by law.

 

 

              AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Town Clerk is directed to publish a Notice of Public Hearing in the November 9, 2017 edition of the East Hampton Star.

              BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the said Local Law is hereby enacted to read as follows:

 

                            LOCAL LAW NO.     OF 2017

                            INTRODUCTORY NO.    OF 2017

 

A Local Law providing for the adoption of a revised "Community Preservation Project Plan," pursuant to Section § 64-e of the New York Town Law, which provides for the preservation of open space, historic places, and recreational areas within the Town of East Hampton, including the incorporated villages therein, to include lands reputedly owned by Joseph Dragotta, and identified on the Suffolk County Tax Map as 300-75-1-26, all as more fully set forth in the text of the Local Law, said Local Law to read as follows:

 

              BE IT ENACTED by the Town Board of the Town of East Hampton as follows:

 

SECTION I. - FINDINGS AND OBJECTIVES:

 

              This local law adopts a revised "Community Preservation Project Plan" pursuant to Section § 64-e of the New York Town Law.  The revised plan supplants the Community Preservation Project Plan which was first adopted by the Town Board on August 4, 1998 and adopted as revised on July 7, 2011 and which continues to list all properties whose preservation is necessary to the preservation of the community character of the Town of East Hampton.

 

              The Town Board would like to amend the plan as most recently adopted on July 7, 2011 to add approximately .62 acres of land reputedly owned by Joseph Dragotta, located on 20 Squaw Rd., Springs, and identified on the Suffolk County Tax Map as 300-75-1-26 for the following reasons:

In the spring of 2015, the Town conducted a Springs Outreach, sending 120 outreach letters to property owners in Springs with the following criteria:

a.  Watershed and waterfront protection: As preservation of these parcels can help ensure that these lands continue to be excellent buffers for surface and subsurface waters, limiting the flow of chemical and natural contaminants

 

b. Parcels that are contiguous to or near other protected parcels: As preservation allows the Town to expand upon our existing holdings, and increase our inventory of open space 

 

c. Trail connection parcels:  As preservation allows these parcels to connect existing or proposed trails, or buffer existing trails

 

This parcel meets the criteria described in the outreach, and therefore, this parcel meets the criteria set forth in Town Law 64-e (4) that establishes and helps define what the preservation of community character involves.

 

 

SECTION II. - COMMUNITY PRESERVATION PROJECT PLAN ADOPTED:

 

              For the reasons set forth in Section I hereof, the Town Board hereby approves and adopts the addition of approximately .62 acres of land reputedly owned by Joseph Dragotta, located on 20 Squaw Rd., Springs, and identified on the Suffolk County Tax Map as 300-75-1-26 to the list of Open Space Recommendations in the "Community Preservation Project Plan" prepared by the Town Planning Department and dated July 7, 2011, said plan being intended to constitute, in its revised form, the community preservation project plan which is required by Section § 64-e of the New York Town Law and Article I ("Community Preservation Fund") of the East Hampton Town Code.

 

SECTION III. - SEVERABILITY:

 

              Should any part or provision of this Local Law be decided by the courts to be unconstitutional or invalid, such decision shall not affect the validity of this Local Law as a whole nor any part thereof other than the part so decided to be unconstitutional or invalid.

 

SECTION IV. - EFFECTIVE DATE:

 

              This Local Law shall take effect immediately upon filing with the Secretary of State as provided by law.

                            _________________________________

 

              AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that, as required by Town Law Section § 64-e (6), the Town Clerk is directed to forward copies of this resolution together with copies of the revised Community Preservation Project Plan dated November 2, 2017 to the following State agencies:
