Rechler Reps Push For Rezoning Of Canal Property As Hampton Bays Residents Raise Opposition

I'd like to understand the reasoning of Hampton Bays Chamber of Commerce that the Rechler Hospitality Development will re energize business in their hamlet without self investment by these businesses, from what they offer to how their storefronts look. How the Chamber believes that folks who can afford the new inn and townhouses will not instead choose traveling east to Southampton Village....their Historical Museum and buildings programmed marvelously by Tom Edmonds. It might be best for the Chamber to first look up and down their own street before they dictate what families should accept - considering a few doors down from their store front are empty lots owned by Whalen looking forlorn, overgrown and derelict for years - why hasn't the Chamber pushed for members to clean up? There are other examples too.. businesses need to re energize themselves before asking home owners, families to accept more traffic and a sewage treatment center in their backyards... instead of the backyard of the new Rechler complex. Favoring businesses over families, who work hard to afford and keep up their homes, is a glimpse of what one might expect if the Chamber President Glinka is elected to Southampton Town Board. Also their claim that no children will be living in this new development is merely based on conjecture…there is no legal basis for which to demand that owners not have children attend HB Schools."

Southampton Town Board To Discuss Revised Canoe Place Inn Proposal On Thursday

Clearly the comments previous to mine are not from those who live near the proposed development that is yet another suburban blight (faux architectural style typical of these developers) even worse traffic jams off season too (remember two weeks ago traffic on montauk highway backed up west beyond Hampton Bays Diner to further east then the Southampton Diner) with no public access to the canal on the south east side. The sole intelligent plan is for these lands to be acquired by the CPF for public recreational purposes if elected officials are serious about restoring the bay, eliminating traffic congestion, air pollution and preserving natural resources. If they approve this development its clear their talk is disingenious. Any efforts towards new development rather then into the Hamlet business district threatens its revitalization - frankly the traffic jams already at two major travel corridors where this is sited are enough of a reason to stop this plan going any further. The developers knew this when they purchased the oroperties... They took a risk ... That doesnt mean we should support a bad idea that ruins our lives and environment. " Oct 16, 14 9:25 AM

Clearly you dont know the neighborhood; Rechlers took a risk buying property - in a residential neighborhood - asking for a zoning change to build their project." Oct 16, 14 10:52 AM

Hampton Bays Residents Sue To Stop Shinnecock Canal Projects

The Rechlers can "rehabilitate" the Canoe Place Inn and could have all the years they owned the property because its already zoned for this use. The purpose of the zoning change was to allow residential use on the Canal; high density townhouses 74000 sq feet vs the current right to build 18000 sq ft; exemption from environmental laws; waste water facility off site, across the road in someone else's backyard. Let the Rechlers know you want the CPI: now. If your looking for increased tax revenues ask Stan Glinka and Christine Scalera why they sponsored a tax exemption for projects like the CPI...passed just before the Board voted for the zone change to also benefit Rechler Equity. Those are the facts that you can all confirm." May 13, 15 9:33 PM

The townhouse development does not include any affordable housing due to the exemptions granted by the Town Board. This is a high density luxury development with private boat slips that had been available to the public who frequented the restaurants. It's my impression that these two bedroom townhouses will be at least one million each... Or more. There's a private pool and clubhouse. Set close to the shores of the Canal only because the Ztown Board granted exemptions--- not anything you nor I could do if we owned this land. And we wouldn't want to because it contributes to the deterioration of water quality and natural habitat. " May 16, 15 9:22 PM

Southampton Town Board Approves Resignation For Two Who Never Resigned

SHACC moving ahead towards its second year with a new mix of committee members without two valued ones who couldn't participate as they had wanted to when they accepted. Sadly this article focuses on a side issue - including misrepresenting that Sandrow presented this change as resignations which the reporter and Schiavoni know isn't the case - instead of focusing on the important work done to benefit the community; SHACC's call for more folks to become involved and participate.
