The East Hampton Town Board is weighing whether to pave over a dirt parking lot serving Ditch Plain Beach. The board authorized a bond isssue of up to $250,000 while pointing out the money doesn’t guarantee any commitment to the project but the board displayed a few potential plans at its last meeting. Locals, criticizing the proposals, repeatedly quoted Joni Mitchell’s refrain “they paved paradise and put up a parking lot” from her 1970 hit “Big Yellow Taxi.” [East Hampton Star]
