Members of the Sag Harbor Village Architectural Review Board are proving to be a tough crowd for the piano man. At a Thursday meeting, which Joel attended, board members reviewed his plans for renovating and joining together two neighboring buildings he owns — a project he’s been pushing since 2016. Board member Dean Gomolka was concerned that any renovation could pose a risk to a large elm tree near the entertainer’s property, 27East reported. Zachary Studenroth, a consultant for the board, was concerned about a brick wall that would effectively run through the renovated home. Board members also took issue with the proposed height raise, which they fear could alter the streetscape. Planners will try to address the board’s concerns before a public hearing on Aug. 23. [27East].
