Public hearing on Vineyard 48 site plan

It is the public’s turn to weigh in on controversial Vineyard 48 in Cutchogue. Southold Town’s planning board is holding a public hearing regarding the vineyard’s amended site plan during its meeting tonight.

The amended site plan presented to planners on March 25 includes a new layout for the existing parking area along with the creation of an overflow lot with 100 additional spaces.

The revised plan also includes construction of a 40-by-100-foot outdoor pavilion adjoining the tasting room. The pavilion would provide extra seating and picnic tables.

The plan comes on the heels of an investigation being conducted the State Liquor Authority. The SLA began looking into Vineyard 48 in April after the business became the source of a long list of complaints, including loud music and patrons allegedly wandering onto neighboring properties and having sex in public.

The public hearing is scheduled for tonight at 6 p.m. in the Town Hall meeting room.
