Good Ground Park Set To Open For Community Day On October 15

Agreed sgt202. The residents of HB need to be on this to make sure it doesn't turn into a social nightmare. We can't let this turn into a photo and the residents be left with a mess. The Town can't take care of the property they have now. They built an amphitheater in the round but stated that they don't know what entertainment works in that (well...maybe you should have figured that out before you built the amphitheater in the round?). They ran out of $$$ for the comfort stations. I don't have a lot of faith in the management of this project. Time will tell." Oct 5, 16 7:38 AM

Concerned Citizens Of Hampton Bays Study Claims Bel Aire Cove Motel Is Polluting Penny Pond

Thank you CCHB leadership for working so hard on behalf of the Hampton Bays community. It is disgraceful that private citizens have to take so much time out of their personal lives and expend personal funds to do the job the Town should be doing. The system that should be place to serve and protect the law abiding property owners and residents has failed and continues to fail. This motel owner as well as other property owners have demonstrated a total disregard for the law, but our Town Officials have looked the other way for years. I will give Supervisor Schneiderman the benefit of the doubt that he will uphold the law, but if not, I will make sure I "look the other way" when he asks for my vote next year." Oct 5, 16 11:50 AM

Southampton Supervisor Pitches New Housing Division

IMO, the Town can't manage the projects they have now. This is totally a waste of taxpayer monies. Maybe if the Town Officials focused on getting rid of the greedy landlords that overcrowd their houses at the expense of the law-abiding resident, there would be more affordable housing. THE PUBLIC HEARING FOR THE BUDGET IS OCTOBER 25TH AT THE HAMPTON BAYS SENIOR CENTER. GO TO THE HEARING OR SEND EMAILS, LETTERS IN LIEU OF GOING." Oct 6, 16 7:44 AM

Concerned Citizens Of Hampton Bays Study Claims Bel Aire Cove Motel Is Polluting Penny Pond

Not cool, Mr. Quinn calling people idiots. This motel owner basically "thumbs their noses" at the Town Officials and the Town Officials look the other way. It is disgusting. If you think it is ok, you are entitled to your opinion, but don't call other people idiots because they don't agree it is ok." Oct 6, 16 7:52 AM

Tue Republican, it is actually worse than the Town being blind to this. They have known about if for years, and have turned their back on the law-abiding residents and property with all kinds of excuses. I have heard them first hand - ATH told a group of residents that our problems are the result of small lots designed for working class property owners - like working class property owners don't deserve to live in a law-abiding community. I heard Mr. Schneiderman blame the courts and that he is going to attract tourists and then the motels will go back to being motels "organically" - like inviting people to a pool party without cleaning the pool. They be fooled into coming once, but they are not coming back. Thank you CCHB." Oct 6, 16 8:56 AM

The fact pattern is completely unrelated between the motel and the Condos. The motel was established as a typical motel to be used on a seasonal basis. The motel septic systems are also very old. The rooms are currently overcrowded and used by full-year residents. The pollution problem is just one aspect - the motel owner has demonstrated a total disregard for the laws. The Condos will be required to be built up to the current code with up-to-date and adequate septic systems. " Oct 6, 16 7:11 PM

Some people might not actually realize you are kidding." Oct 7, 16 8:38 AM

Also...you must be joking....there are no estates on Dune Road in HB. The two properties next to Tiana were purchased with CPF funds for preservation. When was the last time you were in Coney Island? probably not recently or you would have seen the multi-million complex called the Oceana." Oct 7, 16 2:12 PM

Calls For Public Pool For Southampton Town Residents Resurface

If private investors want to build a facility with a pool, so be it. No Town monies or land should be used. The Town can't take care of the parks and beaches they have now, can you image a pool and the related liability? Suffolk Community College is building a beautiful new aquatic center in the Town that will be open to the public." Oct 11, 16 12:02 PM

I respectfully disagree. There are plenty of facilities including the new one being built at Suffolk Community in Riverside, the Saf-t-Swim in Riverhead and Southampton facility (admittedly outside only) in Southampton. There are several private pool clubs in the Town soem less than $1,000 a year. Many people have pools or have friends that have pools. There are many instructors that teach. EH had a terrible time maintaining their pool and many people got sick. the Town should not be in the pool business. They can't take care of what they have now. This went to vote the last time and was voted down. If it goes that far, hopefully it will be voted down again." Oct 11, 16 1:37 PM

giant1 - Red Creek Park is where it was proposed the first time and was voted down. I truly hope if it gets that far, it gets voted down again. There is going to be a brand new aquatic center only a few miles away at Suffolk Community College open to the public. There is no need to waste more taxpayer monies for the Town to mismanage another project. The Town tried to manage the construction of Good Ground Park and wasted so much money they ran out of funds for the comfort stations, playgrounds, etc. They can't keep up on the beaches, public areas and parks. If private citizens want to buy land and invest in a fitness center that includes a pool - good for them. Leave the Town out of it and don't spend my tax dollars." Oct 11, 16 5:27 PM

It may be a little self-serving - after all he is an architect and may want to design a building - no different than the building manager who ran the HB library meetings." Oct 12, 16 9:47 AM

Hampton Bays Motel Owner Insists Business Is Not Polluting Penny Pond Canal

Is this motel owner kidding? Does he not know that the multiple code violation complaints have been shared with many of the residents. His family owns other motel in Town. He has thumbed his nose at the residents and the Town Official for years - enough. Many of the residents of Hampton Bays are sick of hearing excuses from greedy landlords that misuse their properties and collect the rents while the rest of us pay the taxes. We are sick of hearing excuses from the elected officials. This place should be shut down notwithstanding they are causing the pollution." Oct 12, 16 2:41 PM

That is right Mr. Quinn, from what I know CCHB is against Illegal landlords. It is disgraceful that landlords take advantage of other property owners to benefit themselves and get away with it. I am also against people that steal, sell drugs, drive without a license, throw garbage on the street or out their window, leave their dog's feces on the beach. I don't know whose actions are worse - the people that do it, the people that condone it,(Like yourself) or the Town Officials that look the other way. " Oct 13, 16 9:05 AM

Hey G not sure why you would assume I am Kathy Dunn. Not sure why you are so concerned about HB when you are from Southampton. Sorry you think my comments are BS. You are entitled to your opinion about HB and the work of the CCHB. I am entitled to mine. If you think HB is a dump, stay on your side of the canal. We may all be better off." Oct 14, 16 12:03 AM

Mr. Quinn, I said exactly what I meant. It is my conviction that a sense of entitlement and a disregard for the law, left unattended, ruins a community - from petty littering to major crimes. You can disagree and condone lawlessness - you are entitled to your opinion. I would hope that you are "grown up" enough to respect others' opinions.. " Oct 14, 16 11:13 AM

Calls For Public Pool For Southampton Town Residents Resurface

jams, the Suffolk Community College aquatic center is in Riverside - just a few miles from the western parts of Southampton Town. IMHO, it is silly to waste tax dollars to build another major center any closer. Obviously, if a not-for-profit or private investor wants to raise money and purchase land and run a center that is up to them. I would oppose any tax dollars or land being used for this project."

Hampton Bays Motel Owner Insists Business Is Not Polluting Penny Pond Canal

Geeeeez is right, Mr. Quinn. Property owners like this motel owner have have a sense of entitlement and thumb there noses at the rules and the rest of the property owners that follow the rules. I am being honest and I don't appreciate your comments about growing up and calling CCHB members "idiots" - from the other article you posted to. If you think it is ok to cherry pick who gets to break rules and who doesn't - you are entitled to your opinion. From my experience, that never turns out well for a community." Oct 15, 16 5:34 PM

Calls For Public Pool For Southampton Town Residents Resurface

Agreed, however, the headline states "a public pool for Southampton" which would lead you to believe that they are resurfacing the multiple tries of having a public pool on Town prperty subsidized with taxpayer monies. There was a vote several years ago about a pool in Red Creek Park. Even if it is run but a private company, any Town liability or involvement would be unacceptable to me. They have yet to demonstrate that they can handle what properties they already own either through Town funds or CPF funds." Oct 16, 16 12:42 PM

Good Ground Park Opens Saturday

We were told that the park was only going to be open for one day and then closed until the Spring so they could continue the construction - go figure." Oct 16, 16 4:54 PM

I thought the exact same thing. She was in office for how many years and NEVER put an event like this together for the hard working middle class people of HB. Maybe she didn't know there was Red Creek Park, Squiretown Park or the Ponquogue or Tiana Pavilions. she never seemed to be a big fan of HB people (except a chosen few)" Oct 16, 16 7:11 PM

Good Ground Park Closes After Successful Community Day; Facility Is Expected To Reopen Next Summer

If it closed, then why were kids using the new amphitheater as a skateboard park on Sunday?" Oct 18, 16 9:49 AM

U.S. Representative Lee Zeldin, Anna Throne-Holst Debate Thursday Night

At what cost to services did she balance the budget. The people in HB and Flanders paid the price. The public facilities have had deferred maintenance. She may have been there for a photo op for the Riverside Development, but she practically had the head of the Flanders civic begging for a snow blower. Thanks but no thanks. She had her chance.

Hampton Bays Motel Owner Insists Business Is Not Polluting Penny Pond Canal

There are people that are CCHB hater - haters will hate. They judge a group as a whole and don't bother to get the facts. Sadly, many of them sing "praise the Lord" in some Church at 9 AM and starts calling people racists at 10 AM. - a lot like radical terrorist. " Oct 18, 16 8:01 PM

U.S. Representative Lee Zeldin, Anna Throne-Holst Debate Thursday Night

That too Chie1 - the old police chief was practically begging to get his budget. It made me sick. It no wonder there are gangs in the Town of Southampton. " Oct 18, 16 9:01 PM

Good Ground Park Closes After Successful Community Day; Facility Is Expected To Reopen Next Summer

The information about this Park has been as clear as mud. Purposeful on the part of the Town or misunderstanding on the part of the Press - either way - not cool. By the time they are through between CPF funds and Town funds to purchase the property, construction of the Park.. maybe $8-10 million with a couple of million in grants from state tax$$$. How much $$$ to maintain??? From what I understand, there no Town owned stores.....at least that is the story for today - who really knows." Oct 20, 16 2:48 PM

Calls For Public Pool For Southampton Town Residents Resurface

JohnSmith, I respectfully disagree. 80% of my taxes in HB go to the schools. Our tax rate to value of our houses is about 25%, but yet only about 20% of the households have children in the school district. The rest of us get nothing for our taxes. The school district is pricing the local residents right out of our houses. I don't trust the town to manage capital projects and to maintain the property they have. Let the ones that are leading this effort, get a Y or other organization to do it. No more projects funded with tax dollars." Oct 21, 16 6:05 PM

UPDATE: Southampton Town Board Votes To Consider Affordable Housing Zone Change In Speonk

IMHO, Councilpersons Glinka and Scalera have always been the "voice of people: and prudent decision-makers. It is sad to see the two new councilpersons agree with whatever the Town Supervisor says. They ran on an affordable housing platform - at all costs - in all varieties. We got what we deserved for voting for them. Councilperson Scalera voiced her concern at the Town Board meeting on Tuesday, October 25th, but it seemed to fall on deaf ears." Oct 27, 16 7:09 PM

EDITORIAL: The Press Endorses Anna Throne-Holst For The U.S. House

I am not sure how any woman or any resident of Hampton Bays can vote for ATH if you were at or watched any of the Town Hall meetings. I was embarrassed for her that she couldn't understand basic concepts and made her bias so evident. She turned her back on the hard working middle class folks of HB. She had her chance - not one more day." Oct 28, 16 7:03 PM

UPDATE: Southampton Town Board Votes To Consider Affordable Housing Zone Change In Speonk

IMHO, the jury is still out as to what Counciperson Bouvier stands for. He just seems to go along with his party platform. Then again we got what we deserve by voting for him. Jay, Julie and John made it clear that they were going to vote as one unit - but I didn't believe it. Very sad for the Town of Southampton - very sad for them.." Oct 30, 16 7:58 PM

East Hampton Town Hall To Host Discussion On Tenants' Rights

I really don't understand why this group has any authority in Town Government. The government is supposed to be run without bias FOR or AGAINST any group. If OLA wants to help people, good for them, but there should be no involvement by the Town or any other government. agency. It discriminates against everyone else in the Town." Nov 4, 16 6:13 PM
