Southampton Village officials to review ethics complaint in 125-year-old Victorian expansion plan

April 11, 2018 03:20PM

Southampton Village officials will examine complaints about whether the town’s historical consultant overstepped his bounds in advising another consultant hired by the owner of the Mocomanto. The owner of 472 First Neck Lane, Ken Fox, wants to add one two-story extension and another one-story extension to the 125-year-old Victorian, nearly doubling its size, but has to go through the town’s architectural review board first. Neighbors have opposed the project and forwarded the board emails between Fox’s consultant and the one hired by the town, which they say show impropriety. The board is expected to decide the project’s fate at an April 23 meeting. [27East]
