Overview

Pursuant to New York Environmental Conservation Law Article 57 (which incorporates the 1993 Long Island Pine Barrens Protection Act), the East End Towns have the right to petition for membership in the Central Pine Barrens Commission.  Specifically, ECL Section 57-0125 contains this provision.

One of those eligible towns, East Hampton, petitioned the Commission for membership in May of 1999.  That request was not finalized.  Southampton Town also passed a resolution to that effect for the eastern part of the Town, but later rescinded it. The following chronology provides some historical details of the progression of planning, land protection, and related efforts in the region encompassed by those 1999.
