Southampton town’s Community Preservation Fund will plop down $14 million for 11 acres of land on Moses Lane, which was once slated to be a senior housing development. Dubbed Beach Plum Meadows, the project received approval from the town for a 16-lot subdivision, but developers Helen and Edward Corrigan eventually scrapped their plans and sold the property. Under the ownership of the town, the land could be turned into a community garden, Southampton Village Mayor Mark Epley told 27East, but the soil isn’t ideal. So don’t expect a community vineyard, either. The sale has yet to close, and a public hearing is scheduled for Oct. 13. [27East] — Cathaleen Chen
