One resident who spoke at a public hearing Monday night questioned the size of the proposed Jakubiuk Farm & Nursery agricultural building in Southold.
The one-story, 12,000-square-foot building for agricultural storage on Youngs Avenue is proposed on 22 1/2 acres of farmland with development rights held by Southold Town. The proposal was the subject of a public hearing before the Southold Planning Board.

The board discussed the many concerns the public brought up at past public hearings, like the scenic impact, wetlands and surface water protection from animal waste, and the possibility of special events at the location. READ
