Inappropriate Proposal

Everyone living in Pine Neck has heard about the Circle Beach permit proposal for a license agreement between the Town Trustees and Kamadeva Yoga to use Circle Beach for private and group paddleboard classes, lessons, tours and half-day camps for children from May to September, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

There was a tremendous turnout for the May 2 Southampton Town Trustees’ meeting. Every seat in the board room was taken, and an additional 20 persons stood up lining the sides of the room. Every speaker voiced a negative opinion on this proposal, except for the owner of Kamadeva Yoga. An overwhelming number of emails advised the Trustees to reject this application.

We are outraged by this proposal. There are no bathrooms, nor lifeguards, nor trash bins at this tiny neighborhood beach. Has anyone considered the safety of the children where the Mill Creek channel empties into Noyac Bay at Circle Beach?

How can a commercial establishment use a town park for profit? This proposal is inappropriate for Circle Beach. Parking at Circle Beach is inadequate, which is one reason why many local residents walk or bike ride to the beach.

The Town Trustees will announce their decision at their May 16 meeting at 1 p.m. at Town Hall. The Noyac Civic Council urges Noyac residents to voice their opinions on this permit proposal prior to the May 16 meeting. Please email:

This is a quality of life issue that the Noyac Civic Council tries to protect.
