A Two Mile Hollow rebuild on a beachfront property was on the docket again, with revised plans, at Friday’s East Hampton Village Zoning Board of Appeals meeting.
Beautiful Joy L.L.C., which owns the property next to, and a little behind, the asphalt-covered village beach parking lot, had revised previous requests and moved the project back from the contour line of the dune ecosystem.
It’s the tuition increase to the East Hampton schools of over $266,600 that is largely responsible for the Amagansett School District having to pierce the 2-percent cap on tax levy increases by over $323,000, Eleanor Tritt, the school’s superintendent, explained last Thursday.
“Everyone’s really been working together to hold the line as much as we can,” she said. “If it wasn’t for the increase in tuitioned students, we’d be under the cap.”
