The East Hampton Board voted to spend $4 million from the Community Preservation Fund to guarantee food-only farming on a nearly 30-acre property in Wainscott. The town purchased “enhanced rights” from owner Peter Dankowksi that will prevent the property from being developed as a landscape nursery or horse farm. The town can also lease the land to a new farmer if the land sits fallow for more than two years. [27 East]
