Planning board reviews proposed Love Lane office, new ag building

The plan to convert a five-bedroom home at 870 Love Lane into a 1,430-square-foot professional office with an 830-square-foot one-bedroom apartment on the second floor is moving forward. 

The .75-acre property is zoned Residential Office. Changes to the exterior have not been proposed, except for enclosing an 8-by-12 porch and installing a new gravel driveway.

At a public hearing last October several Love Lane residents expressed their concerns about traffic safety. They felt the curb cut was too close to the intersection with Route 48.

Other additions will include a new sanitary system, stormwater drainage and public water connection. 

The main missing piece of information is a covenant and restriction related to sidewalks. If a sidewalk is placed on the adjacent parcel to the south, or if a change of use generates increased pedestrian traffic to Love Lane, a sidewalk would also need to be placed on the property.


Jakubiuk Farm & Nursery has proposed a one-story, 12,000-square-foot building for agricultural storage at 5455 Youngs Ave. in Southold.

It would sit on approximately 22.5 acres of farmland with development rights held by Southold Town in the AC zoning district. Also on the table is a 320-foot gravel driveway for access from Youngs Avenue. A basement has not been proposed.

There are no parking stalls on the site plan as of now, although 12 stalls are required, according to town code. Also, there is no exterior lighting planned.

The site plan is classified as a Type II action under the State Environmental Quality Review Act and requires no further review. 

A public hearing on the proposal is set for Monday, Oct. 15.
