A public hearing for a proposed seaside inn in Bayville that was scheduled for Thursday night has been postponed, the village and project architect said.

The hearing for the Waters Edge project, which envisions a four-floor, 14,273-square-foot, 23-room hotel with a restaurant and bar overlooking the Long Island Sound, will likely be rescheduled for October while a traffic study is prepared, project architect Gregory Andrea said Thursday.

Newsday previously reported that the vacant property — commonly known as the former Steve’s Pier property — was owned by Leonard Gross of Oyster Bay Cove, who has an agreement to sell the site to Euroamerican Funding Group LLC if it receives all the approvals needed to allow any construction.

Proponents of the project have said it will bring business and revenue to the village, and give wedding guests at other venues a place to stay. Opponents have raised concerns about its size being out of character with the village and potential impacts on the environment.
