The East Hampton Town Board lifted a ban last week on takeout-only eateries in its commercial district. Locals hope that lifting the ban will bring new businesses to the district, 27east reported. The ban was originally put in place in 2008 to curb trash buildup on the streets. Officials said they’d recently been fielding inquiries from potential tenants, pushing them to rethink the policy. [27East]
