Developer seeks to revive special zoning for senior citizens community in Hampton Bays

Eleven years ago, RTW Associates secured a special zoning designation to build 50 condominiums for senior citizens in Hampton Bays, but the planned development district (PDD) expired in 2010. Now the developer — which says it didn’t build the project due to a lack of funding and the lengthy approvals process — wants the Southampton Town Board to revive the special zoning so the land can be sold to an as-of-yet unnamed developer who will build the long-planned senior community, The East Hampton Press reported. PDDs were outlawed last year, but because the Town Board never held a public hearing to end the special zoning for the 8.3-acre property, it has to consider the developer’s request, the outlet reported. [East Hampton Press]
