PRESS RELEASE November 23, 2016Contact: Supervisor’s office(631) 283-6055 Connie Conway
The public is invited to participate in a survey on the Town of Southampton website to help consultants with the future design of the downtown business district of Hampton Bays. The survey follows a public meeting with the Southampton Planning Department and the consultant, “Historical Concepts” which began the “charrette process”. The “charrette process” will help the consultant develop a pattern book by having participants choose features they believe will retain the character of the hamlet. At that meeting, about forty people looked at various designs from other towns and villages and indicated their preferences for design elements in the overlay district. The overlay district spans from Springville Road to Ponquogue Avenue and includes Good Ground Road, Main Street and the parcels adjacent to the new Good Ground Park.
This process will lead to changes in the Town code to assure that design standards and forms are aligned with community expectations. It was decided at that meeting to broaden the process by including a survey on the Town’s website to reach more people from the community.
The Community Preference survey can be found on the Town’s website at
