Dear All,

I hope this e-mail finds you well.   I am writing to advise you of a public hearing that will be on our Town agenda on December 19, 2017.  Our new meeting time is 7:00 p.m.

I am proposing a six month moratorium on any new development under the Town’s Waterfront Business District B-W.  The Business B-W district covers the West side of lower Main Street from the Port Washington Yacht Club to the Baxter Estates village line.  Sunset Park is included under the code.   In particular, I am concerned that the code does not have adequate provisions to maintain public access to the waterfront.

After the moratorium is enacted, the Town will undertake the revision of the Waterfront Business B-W code and will be engaging the community in this process.  The mechanics of the process are still being finalized and I will follow up with those as soon as they are available.  I expect that process to commence in early January 2018.

Please share this information with your members as you deem appropriate.  If anyone wants additional information or has any questions they should reach out directly to me.

Happy Thanksgiving and Thank you for your efforts in making our community a great place to live and work.

Best,

Dina
