Hampton Bays: Future, Present, Past

Thursday, May 21st at 7:00 p.m. the Hampton Bays Civic Association will hold its monthly meeting at The Southampton Town Community Center, 25 Ponquogue Avenue. Everyone is welcome. The subject of this month’s meeting is:

Downtown Good Ground: Envisioning the Main Street of Hampton Bays

In two previous sessions Dr. Marc Fasanella looked at elements that have led Hampton Bays to its present and suggested how to deal with the portents and omens of the immediate future. This month’s meeting: Envisioning the Main Street of Hampton Bays, will open with a brief review of the concepts shared in previous sessions. Civic Association President Janice Landis will then open the floor to community members in an effort to garner a Hamlet–wide concept of how the Main Street business district might evolve . Attendees will break into work groups to hone development strategies and create vignettes for submission to the Southampton Town Board.

Planning documents and precedent images will be on hand for review and Town Planning Department Staff will be in attendance and available to answer your questions.

It all happens Thursday, May 21 at 7:00 p.m. at the Southampton Town Community Center, 25 Ponquogue Avenue in Hampton Bays.

Refreshments will be served.

In June -­‐‑-­‐‑-­‐‑-­‐‑ as we near the July celebration of the 375th anniversary of Southampton Township we will focus on the elements of Hampton Bays history the community would like to see restored in the exploration of our identity & sense of place.
