Southold Zoning Board of Appeals chairperson Leslie Weisman, along with other members of the community, expressed support for the creation of a “floating” recreational zoning district at a public hearing last Tuesday. The proposed local law would amend chapter 280 of the zoning code, allowing the Town Board to make a case-by-case determination on recreational facilities for which a genuine need has been established, regardless of underlying zoning.
Town attorney Bill Duffy presented the Town Board with draft legislation Tuesday that would create a “recreational floating zone” intended to promote recreational uses in areas with a demonstrated need.
Under the proposal, the floating zone could be applied to parcels of at least three acres that have been identified as appropriate sites for major recreation facilities. READ
