Historic preservation in the heart of East Hampton Village will be enhanced with the purchase of the Gardiner home lot, Robert Hefner, the director of historic services for the village, said at East Hampton Town Hall last week.
Mr. Hefner, along with village officials and civic group representatives, spoke in favor of a purchase of 3.7 acres of the original lot, for $9.6 million from the town’s community preservation fund.
An electric-vehicle charging station, newly installed at East Hampton Town Hall, will be unveiled at 9 a.m. Friday at an event sponsored by the town board and the Natural Resources Department. The public has been invited.
The station is in front of the police annex at the town hall campus on Pantigo Road. It use will be demonstrated, using electric vehicles provided by Buzz Chew Chevrolet and Tesla Motors, whose representatives will be on hand to answer technical questions.
