Seeking more public input to develop the next chapter of its 2020 comprehensive plan, Southold Town is hosting seven mobile meetings to discuss land use in each hamlet.

The community meetings are meant to encourage local participation in the town’s comprehensive plan process as well as to educate the public about the importance of establishing zoning district and land use guidelines prior to the chapter being drafted.

During Tuesday’s Town Board work session, planning director Heather Lanza said she hoped to have the draft chapter completed by the fall along with new interactive maps that would be available on the town’s website to outline different types of zoning in each hamlet.

Once the draft is complete the town is expected to hold another series of meetings on the language of the chapter, Ms. Lanza said.

The first meeting is scheduled for 10 a.m. May 10 in the Floyd Memorial Library, located at 539 First Street in Greenport. That meeting will specifically address zoning in Greenport West, outside the village.
