Sag Harbor's Waterfront Moratorium Is Extended

Thu, 08/12/2021 - 10:07

A proposal to extend a moratorium on waterfront development in Sag Harbor Village to Feb. 1 was approved by the village board on Tuesday.

The moratorium temporarily suspends the planning board's authority to grant site plan and subdivision approvals for waterfront property adjacent to the village's commercial core.

It had been put in place by a previous board in the fall of 2020 to give the village a chance to develop a new zoning code for the area. It was initially due to end on March 1 of this year, and was later extended to Sept. 1 as work on the code continued.

Mayor James Larocca, who took office on July 6, has said he would use the additional time to revise the code to include more of the village's commercial waterfront, clarify the uses that would be allowed under the new code, and seek to give the village board, rather than appointed boards, the final say on the development of large-scale buildings.
