Good Morning!

• The East Hampton Town Board will hear a presentation on their Phase 3 airport noise study and and update on their proposed truck legislation at their 10 a.m. work session this morning. Their agenda is online here.

• The Southampton Town Board will hold a public hearing at their 6 p.m. meeting tonight on a plan to rezone some properties on County Road 39 in Tuckahoe from highway business and from residential zoning districts to a “Shopping Center Business” district. Their full agenda is online here.

• The Riverhead Town Board meets at 2 p.m. today, and they’ll be holding a public hearing on wind energy production for on-site consumption on farmland. The list of resolutions for the meeting is online here.

• The Shelter Island Town Board will discuss the impacts of last week’s blizzard, the CodeRED emergency notification system and irrigation issues at their 1 p.m. work session today. Their full agenda is online here.

• If you haven’t dug out the fire hydrants in your neighborhood during the mild days of the past week, please take the time to do so when the weather warms tomorrow. Riverhead Town Supervisor Sean Walter is reminding the public that, during a fire Friday night in which a man was rescued from a house on Middle Road, firefighters were unable to tap the nearest hydrant becuase it was buried in snow. Every second counts when lives are at stake.

And that’s the way things look at dawn’s light here today.

One thought on “This Morning’s Bulletin — 2.3.15

  1. The following was sent to SH Supervisor A Throne-Holst and others on the Town Board:

    “Please do not approve the proposed Tuckahoe Shopping Center on CR 39A!

    It would increase the traffic and danger on that already dangerously over-crowded highway.

    The highway still has no service lane for vehicles entering/leaving
    the existing businesses. There seems to be no space left to widen the road unless the existing businesses were relocated…
    (There’s a great idea!).

    Groceries and other retail businesses should be in the village centers.

    Think about it!
