September 19, 2018 02:54PM

Sag Harbor officials are finally singing Mr. Long Island’s tune. The Sag Harbor Board of Historic Preservation and Architectural Review approved Billy Joel’s plans to combine two structures on his property with a two-story addition and to raise one of those properties up to 30 feet, 27East reported. Town officials previously rejected a plan to raise the structure slightly higher. Four board members, however, approved the latest proposal with one vote against it. Those in favor appreciated Joel’s efforts to not disrupt the area. Dean Gomolka commended the latest plan’s “harmony.” The plan still needs permits from the Village Building Inspector Thomas Preiato. [27east]
