The developers behind the The Hills at Southampton, a proposed mixed-use planned development district in East Quogue, are listing the following 15 items as community benefits:

• No children from the 118 residential units will attend the East Quogue School District, and homeowners will contribute about $4.4 million per year in school taxes.

• The developers will set aside $40,000 to fund various improvements at the East Quogue Elementary School.

• The developers will donate nearly an acre of land, worth $250,000, to the East Quogue School District.

• Sidewalks and a crosswalk, worth about $330,000 combined, will be installed at locations to be determined at a later date.

• The firm will contribute $100,000 to watershed improvements that would benefit both Weesuck Creek and western Shinnecock Bay.

• The developers will install enhanced wastewater treatment facilities, valued at about $1.4 million, on The Hills property where feasible.

• A $50,000 donation to Southampton Town will be earmarked for future research of high-tech septic systems.

• The developer plans to restore native habitats on the Hills South, Kracke and Parlato properties, upgrades that are estimated to cost $501,200.

• A $30,000 habitat restoration research program for Shinnecock Bay will be planned and executed by the firm.

• The developer will dedicate four acres, worth $220,000, to the Suffolk County Water Authority for a new well field.

• The developer will provide $500,000 for additional parking in downtown East Quogue.

• The PDD will also add approximately 150 jobs to the community, worth about $5.1 million annually.

• The developer will allow access to The Hills property for educational programs, such as those focusing on habitat restoration, valued at about $75,000 annually.

• The developer will also permit members of the Westhampton Beach High School golf team to practice at the golf course, providing an estimated $156,800 annual benefit.

• Five charity outings can be hosted at the golf course each year, a benefit valued at about $360,000 annually.
