Around Southampton Town Hall: Town Board Tries To Resolve Parking Issues

Jun 29, 2011 11:56 AM

A number of residents urged the Southampton Town Board on Tuesday to roll back parking restrictions on Noyac Bay Avenue, charging that the current rules are resulting in the continued privatization of a public beach at the end of the road.

The board held a second public hearing on the issue on Tuesday after trying to ease restrictions at a hearing held in April. This time, the board negotiated a compromise, explained Town Councilman Jim Malone and Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst.

The board ended up approving a proposal that lifts the parking restrictions along 100 feet on the south side of Noyac Bay Avenue, allowing room for a handful of cars to park there. Parking restrictions on the road are seasonal and only run from May 15 until September 15

Nearly a dozen people spoke about the issue on Tuesday, with most favoring lifting the restrictions. “I would like to know why the demands of 26 people are trumping the rights of 60,000 taxpayers,” said Noyac resident Jayne Young.
