Don't Pillage our Village
Join us and say “Don't Pillage our Village”
SAY NO TO SUPERSIZED AND OUT-OF-CHARACTER HOUSES
Voice your concern and sign this petition in opposition to the Trustee and ARB approval of any out-of-scale homes in the historic Sag Harbor neighborhoods of Sag Harbor Hills, Azurest and Ninevah. The Special Permit process, allowing homes above 4000 sq. ft., threatens the integrity and character of our community.
THIS IS A VOLUNTARY REQUEST. OTHER HOUSEHOLD MEMBERS AND FRIENDS MAY PARTICIPATE SO FEEL FREE TO PASS THIS PETITION ALONG.
Recently, the application for 48 Lincoln in Ninevah was turned over by the Trustee Board to the ARB despite the objections of many of the neighbors in the immediate and larger Sag Harbor Village community. Approval of this application sets a very threatening precedent and scope creep not just for Sag Harbor Hills, Azurest, and Ninevah subdivisions (SANS) –- a community historically referred to as “Cottages by the Bay” -- but also for ALL properties and neighborhoods with historically modest, middle class homes. The combination of lots in these quiet, rustic neighborhoods encourage and foster McMansion compounds under the new GFA Code. These out-of-scale structures will have grave implications to ambiance and sense of neighborhood and community
A DONATION IS NOT REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PETITION PROCESS
This confirms my opposition to any approval of out-of-scale building in SANS such as the house planned for 48 Lincoln Street in Ninevah. The proposed house is inconsistent with the character and scope of the neighborhood. This inconsistency is reinforced by the Interscience Research Report, commissioned by the Village, which showed an average house size of 1400 square feet in the contiguous neighborhoods of Sag Harbor Hills, Azurest and Ninevah.
