The Village of Greenport is holding a lottery for deer hunters looking to bow hunt in Moore’s Woods.

The village is issuing a maximum of five permits for use of the western end woods for bow hunting from Oct. 1 thru Dec. 31. 

The lottery is not restricted to village residents, however all applicants must provide a valid New York State hunting license and form of identification when filling out the form.

Hunters may apply for the lottery at Greenport Village Hall on Third Street. Applicants will be notified of their selection prior to Oct. 1.

• On Oct. 25 the Village Board will host a ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony to rename the newly renovated Third Street basketball court in honor of four deceased residents who lost their lives at early ages.

The park will now be known as the “Third Street Memorial Basketball Court” in memory of residents Corey Freeman, Michael Brown, Kyle Rose and Jefferson “Naquawn” Treadwel, who died in separate accidents and shared a love for the park.

The village said it as not yet chosen a time for the ceremony.

• Village Hall will be closed on Monday, Oct. 13 for observation of the Columbus Day holiday.
