"When you're trying to convince someone, do you normally attack them? Is that how you try to persuade people?" ? Southampton Town Zoning Board of Appeals Vice Chairman Adam Grossman
Mr. Grossman's statement was met with an equally combative one from Southampton resident Frances Genovese: "I don’t have enough time to deal with the absolute rudeness of this board."
As expected, last night's meeting to discuss overturning a permit that allows a new day camp was a contentious one. Curbed readers will recall Jay Jacobs' application to turn the former tennis club and camp into a day camp has been met with vocal disagreement and inspired a $65M defamation lawsuit and a countersuit. Yesterday evening was the final opportunity for both sides to make their case before the board rules on February 16. You better believe that if the board doesn't vote down the application, we'll be writing about yet another lawsuit. Jay Jacobs might be better off building those condos after all.
