Supervisor seeks to abolish authority¬†of the Town’s ZBA

The Supervisor introduced a “walk-on” item at the very end of the Town Board meeting on 12/29/20, introducing a Notice of Public Hearing to “Consider Deleting Town Code 330-167(B)(3) in Connection with the Zoning Board of Appeals’ Authority to Approve a Change in a Nonconforming Use and Enact Town Code 330-185.1 to Have this Review Conducted by the Town Board.”

The Public Hearing is currently scheduled for Tuesday, January 26, 2021, at 6:00 p.m. via Zoom.

This essentially strips the Zoning Board of Appeals of authority to render decisions, and moves that authority to the Town Board itself. The Board of Directors of the Southampton Business Alliance is vehemently opposed to this, as it takes authority away from a fairly appointed Board and politicizes crucial zoning decisions to the whims of our elected officials.

We are assembling a team of legal experts and local business people to put our position together. Stand by for more information coming soon!
