Southampton Village will get bigger if local officials incorporate part of the land where a new luxury condominium is planned, according to Patch. The Bishops Pond at Southampton Village project will rise at the site of a former sand mine and composting site, part of which lies in an unincorporated area of Southampton Town.  

Members of the Southampton Town Board and Southampton Village Board will hear the public’s thoughts next month about  incorporating the land, east of Magee Street.
