The Southampton Village Planning Commission presented four plans for the $20 million renovation of the Parrish Art Museum grounds at 25 Jobs Lane at a meeting last week, 27east reported. The museum is slated to leave the building next summer and take space in Water Mill, and when the three-year revamp is complete, the site will host the Southampton Center for the Arts.

The plans were presented by Manhattan-based consultant Webb Management Services, which was hired by the village to help plan a building that both reflects the area’s current feel, while serving as a destination point well into the future. All four plans expand the building’s footprint, and some call for an outdoor amphitheater. The project will be funded by a capital campaign and private donations.

Though some residents at last week’s meeting opposed the building’s proposed use, 78 percent of respondents to a poll conducted by Webb were in favor of the property continuing “to serve a cultural use.” [27east]
