Subdivision faces opposition in West Hampton Dunes

Feb 18, 2009 11:28 AM

Mr. Skudrna would also need a variance permitting the home on the roadside lot to have a 40-foot setback from the road. The village typically requires that homes be built at least 60 feet from any road.

Harvey Gessin, the chairman of the Zoning Board, said he is most concerned with the roadside lot, which would not fit in with other homes.

“I know they’ve been granted down in the western portion of the village,” Mr. Gessin said. “To stick a house almost on the road would change the area.”

Charles Atanasio, whose home at 747 Dune Road overlooks the Atlantic Ocean, said that the addition of three homes on Mr. Skudrna’s lot would obscure the views of several homeowners on the north side of Dune Road. “Will the people on the bay get the full 180-degree view?” he asked.

Mr. Gessin asked a similar question, stating that the best plan for the village would be one that “preserves the views of the bay.”

Zoning Board member Arnold Perlman said he would take all factors into consideration before casting his vote on the application.

“A problem is that we keep setting a precedent for future subdivisions,” he said. “Each time we allow it, one more party comes to the surface.”

I feel for the people of Westhampton Dunes. I am sure the last thing they want to see down there would be houses built too close to each other!!!
