The Hills at Southampton is the controversial new development planned for East Quogue. Discovery Land Company, the developers, are seeking to build 118 homes and an 18-hole golf course on about 500 acres. The residences would be restricted by covenant to be second homes. The Southampton Town Board said they were getting ready to review the application. The project would require special zoning, a special mixed-use planned development district. Most of the land already purchased by Discovery would allow 82 homes by right; the concern is that the project, in an environmentally sensitive area, would negatively affect area groundwater.
