Southampton official quickly withdraws proposed partial moratorium on development

The newest member of the Southampton Town Board, Tommy John Schiavoni, withdrew his application to halt all development that could threaten the town’s water supply, 27East reported. He pulled his proposal on Thursday, six days before it was due for a vote. Originally, he wanted a six-month moratorium. Critics worried the measure would complicate a $100 million lawsuit filed against the town by the Discovery Land Corporation earlier this year. The board had rejected Discovery’s proposal for “The Hills at Southampton” in East Quogue which would bring 118-home subdivision and golf course. The board believed it’d threaten the town’s water supply and the developers are now trying to reapply with a different plan. Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman said it would be impossible for the town to rule on the new application if the moratorium were in place. [27East]
