Southampton Town Makes Offer To Purchase The Hills Property In East Quogue


Those who want this developed should just move west already. We are talking about pristine land that will effect more than just a vital aqueduct but also our bays and livelihoods.

Seriously, go buy a condo off William Floyd Parkway already and save us from your shortsightedness. Losing undeveloped land from the tax roles is the smallest of prices to pay! First off how much does unimproved land actually contribute currently? More importantly, develop it and it will be forever lost. I urge you to go up there and see the bay and ocean views, and you will understand how all water flows downward. Especially as the surface is cleared, hardened and one day fertilized.

Those who are worried regarding the idea that government is considering buying land need only consider Teddy Roosevelt. The father of Conservation said:

"Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children's children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance."

Are these words only for huge tracks of land out west or for school book lessons, or can we weigh their gravity before it's too late?

I rate Roosevelt's word much higher than that of a transplant lawyer from Tuckahoe and those he represents trying to force along something the locals are largely against. CPF is the best option. For all including the developers! How can they live with themselves knowing what they will do to he future generations of East Quogue.

I hear the natural drinking water is great in Kansas, the shell fish can be had that day and the pristine ocean views even better.
Who would trade that for some overpriced drinks at bars that attact Long Island's classist people along with there consumables?
This isn't about you or current generations this about the town's future. The hills is not a solution to our school district nor anything for that matter.
