The Town of Southampton is working with VHB Engineering Consultants to create a town-wide Housing Plan as part of an update to the Town’s Comprehensive Plan. VHB and the Town have developed an online survey in order to gather vital community input to develop the best plan. In addition to the virtual community meetings being held throughout the Town to engage the community, this online survey will provide more in depth information for the consultants to develop the new plan. 

The survey will be available on the Town’s website through September 15th and will gather community statistics, ideas and suggestions to help in the formulation of the final plan. The survey provides added opportunities for everyone who wishes to participate and provide valuable input for the development of a comprehensive housing plan. 

“We have been getting great information from our virtual Public Forums,” said Diana Weir, Director of Housing and Community Services.  “In addition, this informational survey will allow everyone who works or lives in the Town, and those who did not get a chance to participate in the forums, to share their thoughts and ideas.  Community input is crucial to the success of the plan and these opportunities for participation will help the consultants and the Town formulate the best plan for housing development in the future.”

The survey takes about 5 to 10 minutes to complete from your computer, tablet or smartphone and is on the Town’s website, available in both English and Spanish.  Just click on the links below for direct access.

 All information will be kept confidential.  It will remain live on the Town’s website through September 15, 2020.  The Housing Plan is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year.  The Town Board will consider adoption after its completion.

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.
