A Question

In a Letter to the Editor titled “Incomplete Proposal” [August 4], East End YIMBY founder Michael Daly “recommends high standards of due diligence, clear reasoning [and] transparency … of those involved with evaluating the proposed mixed-use development” in Sag Harbor.

Mr. Daly, who serves on Southampton Town’s Zoning Board of Appeals, approved an increased-density golf course resort in East Quogue known as the Lewis Road Planned Residential Development, or PRD.

I have a question: How does the East Quogue golf course resort — which is a mixed-use development — qualify as a PRD? In other words, can the Zoning Board of Appeals briefly describe the housing component of the PRD versus the land component that was unbundled or separated from the housing?
