The public is invited to participate in a meeting to present the results of a recent three week long survey posted on the Town of Southampton website to help consultants with the future design of the downtown business district of Hampton Bays. The survey followed a public meeting on November 14, 2016 with the Southampton Planning Department and the consultant, “Historic Concepts” which began the “charrette process”. By having participants choose features and design characteristics they believe will retain and enhance the character of the hamlet, the “charrette process” will help the consultant develop a pattern book and related form based code.At that initial meeting, participants reviewed various designs from other towns and villages and indicated their preferences for design elements. These design features will be incorporated in a form based code and pattern book which will apply to a defined overlay district in Hampton Bays. 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. More than 1200 people participated in the survey which helped the consultant narrow down some design choices to be presented to the community at a meeting to be held Wednesday January 25, 2017 at 6pm at the Hampton Bays Senior Center on Ponquogue Avenue.
