I bought on Bridle Path in the 90's and at the time the properties on the backside of that development were non-existent. The Realtor swore they were protected. I debated buying further back in the development but didn't feel like building from scratch. Glad I didn't seems my woodsy neighbor would now be a development." Nov 1, 09 8:11 PM

If you live on Dune Road you aren't going to Cupsogue! These are not residents of WHB, Quiogue, etc (for the most part). These are Suffolk people w/ green keys" Nov 11, 09 10:36 PM
It's disturbing the thought of easing the financial burden was even lurking. The short of it is..if it isn't your don't take it. If you were the one who lost it...wouldn't you expect it to be returned too?

As an officer in a 501c3, I can attest NFP's provide a valued service where private enterprise and government do not operate. It is the Director's obligation to develop other sources of funding to ensure the stability of the entity. To rely solely on one revenue stream is truly the kiss of death in any organization.

Elitism has nothing to do with it. I am merely pointing out the fallacy of the argument. The "new homes" on Dune road are Westhampton Dune homes not Westhampton beach homes. Don't you get the irony that for the WH Dunes folks to have access it in effect re-opened Cupsoge. if there is elitism it's the WHD folks who want access but want to limit (I won't say deny) access to green key persons.

“I am the biggest advocate for living in a village,” he said, citing higher property values, lower crimes rates and an improved quality of life. Huh? Quiogue is not incorporated and it has lower property taxes and does not pay for a mayor...now that is quality of life!" Nov 12, 09 11:22 PM

The system is broken. I pay 15K a year for house inurance. It covers a rebuild so it has little to do with current economic value (my purchase or potential sale). Worse yet there is a hurricane deductible of 5%. That means I pay 5% of any losses. On a 2M house that is 100K. Since my house survived 1938, one can assume it'll survive another hurricane (I am not on Dune road or the bay). Logic says cancel the insurance and roll the dice for the next 10 years (not a bad bet really) BUT the mortgage company requires full coverage for their investment (the land alone is worth more than my mortgage today but I digress)
A better system would have it that coverage is capped and homeowners bear the risk of second luxury homes." Dec 7, 09 9:05 AM

Why wouldn't you suspect foul play? He was wearing a short sleeved shirt and loafers. It doesn't sound like kayaking or boating clothes for January now does it? He certainly wasn't running on the beach in long pants and loafers.

The people living there should not be subject to a commercial venture in a residential area. The garbage and its removal is certainly one good point. Additionally, the foot traffic and parking is the other. " Jan 20, 10 4:47 PM
I seriously doubt that condos by Ponquogue bridge will add to school taxes. While they are targeting families I am sure tey won't be living there year round. If anything it would reduce your tax or more likely alleviate a future burden.
The first question should be, do you really want condos at all? Secondly,the much vaunted S'hampton Board should really htink how they want to let developers develop on or near water. From personal experience, I'd argue that the S'Hampton Council is really interested in furthering the developers needs over the existing tax base's investments." Jan 25, 10 11:03 AM

There are 200 homes in zip 11978 that are in pre-foreclosue (lis pendens) per Realty trac.com
In town we have vacant: the National, the bowling alley, they old gas station on Main, Dora's, metro, the Shell and the old gas station near the bowling alley. That's a pretty weak tax base.
You have a Police Department under investigation and an overpaid chief w/o a contract (sounds dilly but it is true).
