The owners of an oceanfront property on Lily Pond Lane, who are seeking permission to tear down a house in a coastal erosion hazard area and construct a new, larger one, presented a revised and pared-down building plan to the East Hampton Village Zoning Board of Appeals on Friday. At the initial hearing for the application on Jan. 11, the owners, Helene and Norman Stark, had sought 54 variances.
The longer the discussion continued, the clearer it became that neither the panelists nor the audience at a New York Health Act forum on Saturday afternoon had come to debate the merits of the proposed bill. Rather, they had come to talk about why it finally needs to become law.
