HBCA July Meeting: Monday 7/26 @ 7:00PM

You sit quietly in your backyard as the tensions of the week slip away. Suddenly, with its telltale thawakata- thwackata, another commuter helicopter violates your peace and quiet, passing over at under 1,000 feet. Learn what Councilman Tommy John Schiavoni is doing to eliminate noise pollution and what you can do to help.


It's still early morning when the combined roar of gas engine leaf blowers shakes the room and makes the leaves on the trees cringe. The local army of gardeners has arrived. Should this sound disturb you, Dieter von Lehsten, Co-Chair of the Southampton Green Advisory Committee, has some sound advice on the subject.


Finally, light on a neighbor's house points right in your bedroom window at night. Mary O'Brien long time member of the Southampton Dark Skies Advisory Committee offers solutions for devastating light pollution. She will discuss the main principles of the town's light code and what you can do to promote dark skies.

HBCA May Meeting: Tuesday 5/25 @ 7:00PM:

Since the late 20th century, critical Long Island marine habitats such as eelgrass and salt marshes declined by up to 80% and top shellfisheries up to 90%. Locally we've seen outbreaks of brown tide, rust tides, toxic Cyanobacteria blooms, invasive seaweeds, hypoxia, and fish kills which are directly and indirectly linked to excessive nitrogen in our ground water. Multiple solutions to water quality impairments are emerging.

Good afternoon,

Please see the below information regarding NYS Rental Assistance Program Application Deadline being extended to August 6th.

Governor Cuomo announced this week that an emergency rental assistance program will be implemented to help keep low-income families throughout New York in their homes.

The program, which is designed to reach those individuals and families with the greatest need, will provide direct aid for tenants who lost income due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The program is funded through the Coronavirus Relief Fund, which is part of the CARES Act.
The program is administered by New York State Homes and Community Renewal and access to program applications will be available https://hcr.ny.gov/RRP.
