The Greenport Village Board held its meeting tonight at the Third Street firehouse.

The Village Board held a public hearing to discuss a Exxon Mobil’s conservation easement application.

Last month, trustee Chris Kempner and some local residents expressed concern over a pending land deal between Exxon Mobil, Inc. and the Peconic Land Trust.

In March, the trust agreed to accept a donation from Exxon Mobil of 2.6 acres fronting Greenport Harbor. The surplus land, valued at $1.4 million, will be left untouched for passive recreation.
