East Hampton Town plans to buy a 4.2-acre parcel in Wainscott to build 20 to 30 affordable housing units, Newsday reported. Town officials reached a deal with Triune Baptist Church to buy the land off Route 114 near Sag Harbor Village for $900,000. They plan to hold a public hearing on Jan. 17 for the purchase. The outgoing chairman of the Opportunity Housing Fund Advisory Committee, veteran local Democrat Joseph “Job” Potter, is pushing East Hampton officials to continue identifying and buying vacant land to turn into affordable housing. Potter, a licensed realtor, urged East Hampton officials to create an affordable housing fund and implement affordable housing overlay districts where low-cost housing can be created. Potter would also like the town to build up to 15 affordable units per year and conduct an annual review to make sure the municipality meets such a goal. [Newsday]
