  • The Sag Harbor Village Board’s decision to use a site adjacent to the Long Pond Greenbelt for a vehicle impound yard drew an onslaught of criticism during a public hearing on Nov. 13 and prompted Aidan Corish, a trustee, to make a forceful plea for another location.

  • The Hedges Inn will not be allowed to hold outdoor events, even in tents, the East Hampton Village Zoning Board of Appeals decided on Friday. The decision corroborates opinions of the village administrator and building inspector, who, in March, denied four permits for the inn, a frequent wedding venue, on the grounds that outdoor dining is not a permitted use of the pre-existing, nonconforming commercial property, which is in a residential zone. The pertinent village law took effect on Oct. 1.

  • The South Fork Natural History Museum in Bridgehampton is heading out into the wild to do some species spotting. Tomorrow night at 7, Joe Giunta, a birding instructor for the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, will lead participants on an owl prowl. The evening starts off indoors with a slide show and an audio presentation of various owl calls and then ventures into the woods as Mr. Giunta attempts to call the nocturnal birds into viewing range. The museum says odds are good for spotting an eastern screech owl and possibly a great horned owl. Binoculars have been recommended.
