Westhampton Beach Village Not Rushing Supermarket Proposal

Developer called for action on Wednesday night.

Westhampton Beach Village Not Rushing Supermarket Proposal

The Westhampton Beach Village Board of Trustees said on Wednesday night that they are not quite ready to hold a public meeting on a proposal by a local developer to bring a new supermarket to the area.

When the question came up during the board's monthly work session, Village Mayor Conrad Teller simply said, "It's not on the agenda. It will be soon."

Developer Andrew Mendelson, who is a Westhampton Beach resident, stood at the village's podium earlier this month to ask the board to please consider holding a community meeting to disuss his plan to construct a supermarket on a 40-acre lot that he owns on Old Riverhead Road.

Current zoning does not permit for a supermarket in the district, however, Mendelson, who said he wants to provide a choice other than for area residents, said he believes it is the best spot for such a service.
