Citing noise, East End residents seek end to construction on Sundays

Sagaponack may be reinforcing the Sabbath. The East Hampton Star reported that village residents are fed up with construction in the area, with residents saying that work has led to a “degeneration of quality of life.” That has prompted Mayor Donald Louchheim to declare he is “personally in favor of no construction on Sundays” at a Sagaponack Village Board meeting this week.

But he does not have the final say — a resolution first needs to be drafted, then a public hearing will follow. The paper said the hearing would most likely take place in September.

Complaints primarily center around the noise from drilling and the time during which construction work happens. Current regulations permit construction to go on each day of the week from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. However, residents say the construction begins earlier and ends later.

“Can we at least get one day of peace or restrict some of those hours?” Suzanna Reynolds, a village resident, said at the meeting. [East Hampton Star] — Zachary Kussin
