East Hampton Village gives Ron Perelman a resounding no to zoning change

June 21, 2017 05:36PM

The East Hampton Village Board unanimously shot down billionaire Ron Perelman’s proposal to rezone his 60-acre property so that it’s compliant with the town code. In 2012, a firefighter accidentally discovered that the investor had built several structures on his Georgica Pond compound without obtaining the right permits, the East Hampton Star reported. As a resolution, Perelman and his attorneys proposed the creation of a new residential district. But the board found it to be inconsistent with the village’s land-use plan. According to mayor Paul Rickenbach Jr., the two parties will “move ahead hopefully come to some amicable resolution.” [EHS]
