The East Hampton Town Board voted unanimously to spend $385,000 in community preservation funds to purchase #8 Deer Path, a 1.1 acre parcel in Springs.

Open space is the intended use for this property.

Around the corner from this parcel is a building lot at the top of Three Mile Harbor Road, where the road makes a right angle turn to the south.. it is such a bad place that a few years back a young woman died in a car that didn’t navigate the turn properly.

I have personally called and written to EHT Board about purchasing this parcel so no one builds on it.. I can’t imagine what it would be like to try to enter & exit a driveway on this deadly turn.. and still no reply???

It’s MUCH less expensive than Deer Path and could save more lives to come

Town & Country would donate our entire commission to get this done!

I hope someone’s listening out there!

The town board has approved, unanimously, the purchase of 3 properties.

The first is a 5.9 acre waterfront lot at 41 Three Mile Harbor Road, owned by the Prand Corp. the parcel has 670’ of shoreline and has approximately 2 acres of low-lying area which helps absorb rainwater and prevent flooding in the area.

The other two parcels are in Montauk.

One lot at 20 Gloucester Ave, .44 acres, owned by L. La Ruffa for $190,000 and the second at 117 North Greenwich St, 0.3, owned by C. Foti for $225,000.

All three parcels will be used for open space, park, nature preserve or recreation area.

All good additions to East Hampton’s land holdings.


County Has Taken Title to Riverhead’s 300-acre North Fork Preserve

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy announced last week that the county has taken title to Riverhead's 300-acre North Fork Preserve, which it purchased for $17.8 million.

"This is a crown jewel in the county holdings," Levy said in a brief ceremony Thursday in front of the entryway's stone pillars. "This is a parcel that generations in the future will look back fondly on."

Park officials have preliminary plans for the southern 180 acres that include trailer and tent camping sites, cabins, ballfields and paddle boating. Tennis courts and a clubhouse already exist on the property. There is no timetable for the park's full development. The northern 126 acres will be limited to passive park uses such as hiking.

Legis. Edward Romaine (R-Center Moriches), who sponsored the acquisition, said the county would begin negotiating to acquire 50 adjoining acres for an equestrian center.

The price for that parcel is expected to be far lower than market value because Suffolk already owns development rights under the county farmland program.

Riverhead – Legislature Approves Planning Steps Resolution for 50 Acres

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Suffolk lawmakers yesterday took the first step toward adding 50 acres to the county's $17 million purchase of the 300 acre North Fork Preserve in Riverhead to create an equestrian center.

The legislature approved a planning-steps resolution that will lead to appraisal and a purchase offer for the added parcel, to which Suffolk already has acquired development rights under the county farmland program. Backers say the private hunting group, which owned the preserve as well as the 50 acres, is looking to sell all its holdings.

The county plans to put out a request for proposals from private investors willing to build stables, an indoor arena and corrals under a long-term lease.

Backers say the equestrian center will only add to the appeal of the North Fork preserve, dubbed Suffolk's last great park, which is scheduled to have nature trails, camping, cabins, ballfields, paddleboats and fishing.

Legis. Edward Romaine hopes negotiations with Riverhead Town can be completed within three to six months.

Fifty different criteria are evaluated and ranked including water and sand quality, as well as facilities and environmental management.

With beach destinations being the #1 choice for American vacationers, it is with great pride that we see two of our beaches ranked so high. Go see for yourself – they are both fabulous.
