Just Say "No"

The East Hampton Village Zoning Board of Appeals was in fine form during its October meetings. Demonstrating the group's extreme prudence, chairman Andrew Goldstein had this to say about plans for a pergola that lacked proof it would abate noise: "We're being asked to approve this because, 'What the hell, it's just another wall,' We won't do that." In another case, Mr. Goldstein upheld a building inspector's denial of the request to demolish a kitchen at 23 Main Street to make way for more retail space. "The building inspector acted reasonably when he denied [the] permit," he said, citing lack of evidence behind the attorney's claim that the kitchen was not in the building's original plans. Both cases were adjourned until December's meeting. [East Hampton Star]
