Increased traffic at the airport in recent years has created growing concerns about noise pollution, public health, safety, and environmental impacts. These impacts are not well-aligned with East Hampton’s identity as a resort community committed to sustaining the quality of life and the quiet enjoyment of its rich natural, cultural, and scenic resources. At the same time, the airport provides positive values to the community including employment, economic and recreation opportunities as well as access for emergency, medical and civilian services.
Extensive public participation is a key part of the re-envisioning process and will inform the Town Board’s decision-making process and evaluation of alternatives. Please visit: https://ehamptonny.gov/749/How-to-get-involved to join the discussion.
