The developer behind a controversial application to build 60 condominium units for senior citizens in Speonk in the Southampton is changing his plans, according to the Southampton Press. At a Town Board meeting Tuesday, developer Barry Bernstein unveiled a revamped plan that calls for 36 condo with no age restrictions for residents, a medical complex, a small recreational center and a restaurant. The revised plans for the property on North Phillips Avenue were drawn up in response to concerns raised by community members who complained that the original project was too dense. The new application, which requires a zoning change, was submitted to the town clerk’s office just before Tuesday’s public hearing. Bernstein said his latest application reduces the density of the project and adds a $250,000 cash payment to the town, funds which would be used to construct some sort of community project. The facility would also include emergency care, elder care, rehabilitation as well as a pharmacy.
