Three opportunities to develop housing
for those who now cannot afford it present themselves this season.


Last Wednesday, members of the east end community and the Shinnecock Nation put a new roof on a house on the reservation just before the predicted rains and coming winter storms. The work was done under the auspices of East End Direct Action. If you would like to help pay for the costs involved, please contact Tony Ernst at 631-259-2482.

Two: The Padoquohan Medicine Lodge, Inc. on the Shinnecock Reservation continues it's work helping folks on the 'Rez' with housing repairs. A home moved to Shinnecock last December needed up-grading and other projects will benefit from monies raised by contributions from the east end community. Address your tax-deductible checks to:

The Padoquohan Medicine Lodge, Inc.
P.O. Box 5078
Southampton, NY, 11969

or buy a raffle ticket - the prize is a BMW auto- to benefit both the Padoquohan Medicine Lodge and the Hayground School in Bridgehampton. Hayground School is a private institution, many of whose students come from the 'minority' communities in our area.

For raffle tickets at $100 each - the drawing in June '08 - call Hayground School at 631-537-7068

Three - updated December 19

The Sag Harbor ZBA - Zoning Board of Appeals met Tuesday, December 18 at 4pm at Village Hall on Main St. The Bulova project discussion was postponed until the next meeting on January 15. The project, a plan by developers for more than 60 luxury apartments will be discussed next by the Sag Harbor Planning Board on January 3. At that time the Planning Board will probably vote on the County's housing requirement and the need for a formal environmental quality review ( SEQRA) for the project.

Those local teachers, fireman, police and other 'just plain folks' who would like to live near their jobs will be shut out unless the Village officials can be convinced that we do need affordable housing in Sag Harbor, not more weekenders' second homes.

A plan for low-cost housing CAN be developed using some of the land slated for this project.

Come to the meeting, hear what's going down and voice your opinion.
