Southold planners to discuss horse farm, waterfront

The Southold Planning Board will review a revised site plan for a horse farm and riding arena on Ackerly Pond Road in Southold at its work session this afternoon.

The proposed riding academy has been criticized in the past by neighbors who shared a common driveway with the property, leading the new owners to propose a different access to the 10-acre site.

Also up for discussion is the proposed subdivision of the New Suffolk Waterfront Fund’s 3.4 acre site at the end of New Suffolk Avenue.

The Waterfront Fund is transferring 1.1 acres of the site to neighboring Robins Island Holding, LLC, the holding company for property neighboring the Waterfront Fund’s site that is owned by billionaire hedge fund manager Louis Moore Bacon III. Mr. Bacon helped pay off the Waterfront Fund’s mortgage last year in exchange for title to a portion of the site.

Also up for review are a proposed expansion and a new warehouse at Sparkling Pointe winery in Peconic.

The work session begins at 2:30 p.m. in the executive board room upstairs in the Southold Town Hall Annex on the corner of Youngs Avenue and Route 25 in Southold.
