II.              Hamlet Studies Presentation

Sylvia Overby goes over the timeline of the project beginning in 2015.  She explained the entities involved and the steps they took in order to come back with the first draft plan in June of 2017.  Today we hear an updated draft.  She explained the need for the hamlet studies. 

 

Lisa Liquori spoke on the following issues:  Water quality and water quality improvements.  Peter Flinker spoke about the amount of work to be done and the importance of prioritizing the different projects.  The costs will be a concern making it nearly impossible to do everything, especially at one time.  Lisa and Peter took turns speaking on different aspects of the plan.  The feedback from the public was broken down into 6 categories of concern-environment; historic and scenic character; transportation; parking; affordable housing; and gravel pits.  They first spoke about the Wainscott area.  They spoke about parking, building shapes and sizes, round-a-bouts, ground water, mixed use development and workforce housing, wastewater treatment.  In the East Hampton area, North Main Street area, contractor vehicle special permit use and area for contractors to park on Springs Fireplace Road.  Parking and access management issues were discussed for the Pantigo Road - Pantigo Place area.  Workforce housing for the area. The former Stern?s property would be a possibility for affordable housing.  Cedar Street, North Main Street and Collins Avenue area was discussed.  The Springs Fireplace Road gravel plant was discussed.  Connectivity and transportation recommendations were made. In Amagansett the main focus is to keep the historic areas and character.  Parking areas around the town owned municipal parking.  Development and pedestrian crossings in the IGA area were of concern.  In Montauk sea rise is a concern.  They spoke about the downtown and harbor area.  Transportation and circulation in the area was discussed.  Coastal erosion is an issue.  Parking another issue.  Seasonal housing is a need.  Wastewater concerns and treatment facility needs were discussed. 

 

Supervisor VanScoyoc gave some closing remarks.  He encourages the public to engage.

 

Sylvia thanked Marguerite Wolffsohn and her staff.
