The Town of Southampton has completed the purchase of nearly 3 acres of undeveloped property at 111 Pond Lane near Lake Agawam in the Village of Southampton for $10,000.000.00 through the use of Community Preservation Funds.  

Supervisor Schneiderman and members of the Town Board recognize the importance of protecting this land for open space as these resources become scarce.  The property contains successional southern hardwood trees and is located within the Lake Agawam Watershed.  It is also recognized as lying within a New York State Archeologically Sensitive Area.

"There is very little open space in the Village of Southampton, yet they are a major contributor toward CPF revenues.  This parcel will preserve a wooded area in the heart of the village and help protect Lake Agawam, an impaired water body, from further degradation."

“This is a unique, once in a lifetime opportunity to preserve such a large property on Lake Agawam,” said Southampton Village Trustees Kimberly Allan.  “It’s a big win for the Village and it’s another step toward improving our Lake Agawam water quality and maintaining our vistas.   When we started down this path three years ago it was a dream but thanks to the support of Supervisor Schneiderman and the Town Council we are getting closer to realizing the dream.”  

The attorney for the Wyman Family, the former owners of the property, Gil Flanagan said, “The Wyman family was pleased to work with the Town and the Village in order to advance the community goals of preserving open space in the Village and also providing a buffer for Lake Agawam to help improve its water quality.”
