Southampton Town wants to know what its residents are thinking.
To determine its priorities for the future, the town has linked a “community priority survey” to the town website.
The survey focuses on future land use, open space preservation, historical preservation, affordable housing, child and elder care, and community meeting needs.
The survey comes out of recent public hearing testimony by residents concerned that new Planned Development District laws, which focus on zoning for large projects in exchange for a public benefit such as preserved land, should have certain areas identified for special consideration in advance.
“Residents realize the magnitude of these decisions, especially for large-scale projects that PDDs typically produce, and routinely ask us for the opportunity to offer early input [in] the decision-making process,” Southampton Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst, above, said.
Residents are asked to complete the survey before Friday. The survey can be found on www.southamptontownny.gov.
