The future of Hren’s Nursery, a landmark on the Montauk Highway between East Hampton and Amagansett, was on the agenda of the East Hampton Town Planning Board last week. The business was closed last year. Now, however, the Hren family has proposed subdividing the property, with one lot for the nursery, four house lots, and an agricultural reserve. The landscaping part of the business would be discontinued.
An East Hampton Town police officer patrolling Three Mile Harbor Road in Springs in the early hours of Jan. 5 made a sharp swerve onto the shoulder to avoid being hit by an oncoming Dodge Durango, which then continued on. The officer turned around fast and stopped the Durango after a short pursuit.
