‘Ugly subdivision’ proposal faces opposition from neighboring East Hampton officials

April 11, 2018 03:21PM

East Hampton officials had harsh words for a subdivision plan on a 41.3-acre plot in Sagaponack: “ugly” and “a bad move.” Sagaponack has to show the plans to their neighbors because it’s so close to the border between them. The plan would transform the now-farmland into nine house lots with a 26-acre agricultural preserve. The lots would have as many as 56,597 square feet for housing and a 50-by-1,000-foot roadway. East Hampton officials are urging their neighbors to either ” to use community preservation fund money to conserve the farmland” or drastically reduce the plan. [East Hampton Star]
