A small building lot on an acre of waterfront property on Fort Pond in Montauk brought out a large group of neighbors at an East Hampton Town Zoning Board of Appeals hearing on June 11.
Timothy and Noell Twiggs, who own the undeveloped acre at 85 South Edgemere Street, had obtained several setback variances as well as a natural resources special permit in previous applications to the board. At their first hearing, in early 2012, no member of the public attended, a fact not lost on the board members.
An East Hampton man who was involved in a fatal car accident two years ago was arrested shortly after 9 p.m. on Sunday and charged with driving while intoxicated. East Hampton Town police stopped Diego Barahona, 21, on Montauk Highway in Wainscott after receiving a call about an erratic driver.
