Greenport Village’s waterfront sustained about $100,000 worth of damage from Hurricane Sandy, according to memos prepared for tonight’s village board work session, which will begin at 6 p.m. at the Third Street firehouse.

Though the village is expecting the cost of repairs to eventually be repaid by FEMA, Village Administrator David Abatelli recommends the work begin soon in order to have the docks in shape for visitors by Memorial Day.

The village is also close to adopting its updated Local Waterfront Revitalization Plan, a blueprint for how village residents would like to see the waterfront look in the future. The village board will hold a special informational meeting on the final draft of the plan with consultant Dave Smith at the Little Red Schoolhouse on Front Street on Feb. 28 at 5:30 p.m.

The draft is expected to include some proposed zoning changes, a proposal to build an aquaculture support facility, expanding McCann Campground on Moore’s Lane, enhancing Moore’s Woods and creating a trail from Long Island Sound to Peconic Bay.

More information on the LWRP is available here.

The village is also expected to finalize changes to its mass assembly permits for Mitchell Park in the near future and the village’s code committee is discussing changes to its wetland permit fee structure.
