§ 330-240 Findings and purpose.

[Amended 10-23-2001 by L.L. No. 43-2001]
A. 
It is hereby found and determined by the Town Board of the Town of Southampton that there exists in the Town vast but diminishing natural resources and tracts of land deserving of preservation and maintenance for this and future generations. This need is balanced by a need to accommodate and provide for the future economic welfare and development of the Town.
B. 
The purpose of this planned development district (PDD) legislation is to facilitate increased flexibility to achieve more desirable development through the use of more creative and imaginative design of residential, mixed use, commercial and industrial areas than is presently achievable under conventional land use techniques and zoning regulations and to preserve, adapt and improve existing open space, land uses and communities, consistent with the recommendations of the Town's Comprehensive Plan. The implementation of planned development shall be established on a floating zone basis with attendant controls and regulations intended to provide the means to accomplish the salutary purposes and goals set out herein.
C. 
A planned development district may be established as a receiving site for development rights or Pine Barrens credits pursuant to the applicable transfer of development right portions of this chapter and § 261-a of the Town Law of the State of New York. Said transfer shall be consistent with the recommendations of the Central Pine Barrens Comprehensive Land Use Plan and/or the Town's Comprehensive Plan.
D. 
A planned development district may be established as a method of providing incentives or bonuses for development providing substantial community benefits or amenities pursuant to the applicable provisions of this article and § 261-b of the Town Law of the State of New York. The development incentives or bonuses and the community benefits or amenities shall be consistent with the recommendations of the Central Pine Barrens Comprehensive Land Use Plan and/or the Town's Comprehensive Plan.
(1) 
“Community benefits or amenities” shall mean open space, housing for persons of low or moderate income, parks, elder care, day care, or other specific physical, social or cultural amenities, or cash in lieu thereof, of benefit to the residents of the affected community or communities and commensurate with the benefit to the applicant.
[Added 10-26-2010 by L.L. No. 33-2010]
(a) 
Any monies collected pursuant to the "cash in lieu of" alternative shall be placed in a dedicated account, restricted to only those uses specifically delineated within the legislation authorizing the planned development district, and may only be allocated pursuant to a duly adopted Town Board resolution.
E. 
The various long-term goals which the Town Board wishes to achieve by this legislation are:
(1) 
Preservation and conservation of open space, natural resources, diverse ecological communities, species diversity, and groundwater quality and quantity.
(2) 
Connection of open space systems and maximization of open space corridors and to establish and maintain open space and open space corridors for active and passive uses.
(3) 
Preservation of agricultural lands and uses.
(4) 
Increase consideration of and coordination with school districts, utilities and governmental services.
(5) 
Encourage the most efficient and purposeful use of all remaining vacant land.
(6) 
Preservation and improvement of existing smaller communities.
(7) 
Preservation of a sense of place in communities and the creation and reestablishment of small hamlet communities and atmosphere which foster the sharing of amenities and the utilization of local services.
(8) 
Creation of planned residential communities providing an array of housing meeting the social and economic needs of the residents of the hamlets, the Town and the region.
(9) 
Reduction in the effective cost of governmental and other public services.
(10) 
Elimination of excessive and inefficient infrastructure and the minimization of infrastructure development and maintenance costs and maximization of efficiency and coordination of existing and planned transportation facilities and networks.
(11) 
Prevention of inappropriate development on stale previously filed subdivision maps encompassing wetlands, high-water-table areas, steep slopes and other impractical or unsuitable terrain and topography.
(12) 
Development of communities wherein, collectively, the mix of uses, aesthetically, physically, socially and economically encourages the creation and/or preservation of a sense of place, pride and values.
(13) 
Provide flexible but definitive standards to facilitate innovative and creative land use planning and development techniques not possible under conventional zoning ordinances.
(14) 
Encourage the development, rehabilitation and improvement of identifiable and unique historic and architecturally significant areas and communities, “main streets” and centers of residential, commercial and industrial activities.
(15) 
Encourage comprehensive and innovative planning and design of the highest quality, utilizing and incorporating a variety of land uses.
(16) 
Provide reasonable incentives and standards to encourage private participation in and compliance with the comprehensive goals of this article.
(17) 
Assure that lands set aside for receiving or sending areas are consistent and harmonious with the Town's comprehensive land use objectives and locate areas permitted to be developed in such a manner as to maximize the continuity and connection of open spaces, preserves and wildlife corridors.

Each revision of the project concept plan submitted by the applicant to the Town Board in the formal application stage may require a new referral to the Planning, Conservation, Landmark and Historic Districts and Architectural Review Boards, where the initial review identified issues of concern.
(3) 
In preparing its report(s) and recommendation(s), the Planning Board shall take into consideration the recommendations of the Comprehensive Plan, the existing characteristics and arrangement of land uses in the area, the environmental and cultural aspects of the project site and its surroundings, the relationship of the proposed design and location of buildings on the site, traffic circulation on and off the site, the adequacy of available community facilities and utilities to service the proposed project, compliance of the proposed project with the standards and requirements of this chapter, the then-current need for the requested use(s), and such other factors as may be appropriately related to the purpose and intent of this article and other provisions of the Town Code.
(4) 
With regard to potential impacts to community services, the Town Board shall also transmit the application and/or solicit comments and preliminary review concerning the proposed PDD zoning designation from the Chief Fire Marshal, the Fire Department with jurisdiction, or other municipal agencies or districts with jurisdiction, including agencies under contract to provide ambulance/ emergency medical services to the subject property. For input from agencies under contract to provide ambulance/emergency medical services to the subject property, the Town Board shall refer conceptual plans to the EMS Advisory Association for its recommendations. The Town Board shall also refer the application to the school district in which the proposed project lies.
(5) 
The school district within which the project lies, the Chief Fire Marshal, the Fire Department with jurisdiction, or other municipal agencies or districts with jurisdiction, including agencies under contract to provide ambulance/ emergency medical services to the subject property, may provide comments for the Town Board to consider, and shall forward said comments to the Town Board within 45 days of such referral. No response following such forty-five-day period shall be construed as no potential adverse impacts to community services, and no additional requirements may be deemed necessary by such agency for consideration by the Town Board in its review and possible approval.
I. 
Town Board action.
(1) 
A copy of the resolution containing the Town Board's decision either to approve or deny the proposed PDD shall be forwarded to the Planning Board and the applicant within three business days. A copy shall also be placed on file in the office of the Town Clerk, and, if in the form of an approval, the official copy of the Town Zoning Map shall be amended accordingly. Approval is required to authorize the applicant to proceed with the detailed design of the proposed project in accordance with the concept design plan and the subsequent procedures and requirements of this article.
(2) 
The resolution containing the Town Board's decision shall include the following:
(a) 
The reasoning behind the Town Board's decision, referring to the extent to which the proposal meets established Town and hamlet goals for the project area;
(b) 
If approved, a detailed statement of the required community benefit, including a description of the benefit, how the benefit was determined, how it meets the criteria given in § 330-245 of the Town Code, and how and when it will be provided. When the approved community benefit consists all or in part of a cash-in-lieu payment to the Town, the resolution shall enumerate the allowable expenditures of such monies.
[1] 
The Town Board shall establish a schedule for implementation of the established community benefit(s). Said schedule shall be incorporated into the Town Code for the newly established PDD zone.
[2] 
When all or part of the required community benefit(s) is to be provided by a cash-in-lieu-of payment, the PDD legislation shall enumerate the allowable expenditures of such monies. A preferred, and at least one alternate use of the funds, option shall be given to facilitate the expenditure in a timely manner.
[3] 
Any cash-in-lieu-of payments shall be deposited into a restricted account attendant to those uses specified in the PDD legislation.
(3) 
A supermajority vote of the Town Board shall be required for the approval of a formal PDD application, or the amendment of an approved PDD project, exclusive of agricultural PDDs, which shall be subject to a simple majority vote.

Editor’s Note: This local law passed at referendum 11-8-2011.
J. 
Expiration of approval. Except for Agricultural PDDs, approval of the establishment of a PDD shall expire 36 months after the date of approval by the Town Board unless the appropriate Planning Board approvals have been obtained and substantial construction has begun. In an effort to remain true to the purposes and goals of the Town Board at the time it approved a particular PDD application, the Department of Land Management shall provide comments and recommendations to the Planning Board for any pending PDD application, adopted by the Town Board but being reviewed by the Planning Board, which may be affected by any recently adopted hamlet study, moratorium study, or Comprehensive Plan update findings, for the Planning Board's due consideration when considering said PDD application. In the event of an expiration of approval, the PDD may, after proper notice and a public hearing, revert to its prior zoning classification, and the Town Clerk shall amend the official copy of the Zoning Map in accordance therewith. Approval for a specific PDD shall be use-specific and shall not entitle the substitution of another PDD without an entirely new application under this article. There shall be no expiration of the approval of the establishment of a PDD where the Town Board establishes said PDD on its own motion.
K. 
Oversight and review.
(1) 
For each PDD approved, except for Agricultural PDDs, the Town Board shall establish a committee to provide oversight and make recommendations to the Town Board on such actions as may be needed to ensure implementation of the required community benefit according to the schedule established by the Town Board and in accordance with the intent of PDD-specific community benefit requirement. Said committee shall also provide oversight on project development, as needed, to ensure that it is built to the approved plan. The Oversight Committee shall be appointed by the Town Board and shall include stakeholder representation including the applicant or designee, one member of the Community Advisory Committee (CAC) in which the project is located, and the following Town officials or their designees: Town Comptroller, Town Attorney, Town Planning and Development Administrator, Chief Building Inspector and, when land preservation is required, the Town's Community Preservation Fund Manager.
(2) 
By June 1 of each year, the Department of Land Management shall provide the Town Board with a brief report on the PDD application activity over the previous year, including, but not limited to, a listing of new and pending applications and their status, a qualitative assessment of the applications received in the previous year, and an assessment of the quantity and content of public comments on those applications.
(a) 
Within 45 days of the receipt of the said report, the Town Board shall, at a public work session, consider the contents of said report, the impact of the Town's PDD legislation on Town growth and development, and whether further action is needed to amend the PDD provisions of the Town Code.

§ 330-245 Evaluation criteria and general development standards.

A. 
No earth work, land clearing, construction or development shall take place on any property in a PDD except in accordance with the subdivision or site plan approved by the Planning Board in accordance with this article and the procedures and standards for site plan approval set forth in this chapter.
B. 
In cases in which a proposed project also involves the subdivision of land, no development may proceed until the Planning Board has granted final subdivision approval in accordance with the standards and procedures of Chapter 292 of this Code.
C. 
Approval of a site plan for any of the uses listed in this article shall be conditioned upon sanitary waste discharge levels which are found to be acceptable by the Suffolk County Department of Health Services.
D. 
Unless restricted otherwise herein, minimum yard setbacks, allowable lot coverage, maximum height or other dimensional requirements for any of the structures devoted to uses listed in this article shall be set by the Planning Board and delineated on the approved plan rather than determined by any other provisions in this Code, but shall in no event be less restrictive than those dimensions set forth on the preliminary site plan submitted in accordance with § 330-244 and upon which the Town Board placed reliance in approving the PDD amendment. The Town Board and Planning Board shall consider the dimensional requirements of the underlying zone as the initial basis for the development design.
E. 
On-site parking and access requirements shall be determined by the Planning Board based upon the off-street parking schedule in this chapter and reasonable planning standards. Parking and access requirements shall not be less than those shown on the preliminary site plan unless the Town Board shall, by resolution, consent to any such reduction. The Town Board and Planning Board shall consider the requirements of the underlying zone as the initial basis for the development design.
F. 
No planned development district shall be located within the Central Pine Barrens core preservation area as defined in § 330-217 of this chapter.
[Amended 12-21-2001 by L.L. No. 54-2001]
G. 
No planned development district shall be located within the Central Pine Barrens compatible growth area as defined in § 330-217 of this chapter or within a critical resource area as defined in § 4.5.4.1 of the Central Pine Barrens Comprehensive Land Use Plan, unless the proposed development adheres to the Commission’s review pursuant to § 4.5.4 of the Central Pine Barrens Comprehensive Land Use Plan, provided that the PDD ensures enhanced protection of the critical resource feature for which the CRA is designated and if the PDD is located within the Aquifer Protection Overlay District, also complies with the minimum clearing restrictions set forth in § 330-67 and, if applicable, open space requirements of § 247-8.
[Amended 12-21-2001 by L.L. No. 54-2001]
H. 
A planned development district may be authorized where the Town Board finds that the development will be beneficial, compatible and harmonious with the surrounding land uses and not have a significant adverse impact upon the environment. The siting of a planned development district shall also be consistent with the recommendations of the Comprehensive Plan.
[Added 12-21-2001 by L.L. No. 54-2001]
I. 
Community benefit. For each PDD approved, the Town Board shall establish a required community benefit(s) specific to the project. The required benefit(s) shall be detailed in the resulting PDD legislation. In determining the community benefit requirement for a proposed PDD, the Town Board shall consider:
[Added 5-24-2011 by L.L. No. 17-2011; amended 7-26-2011 by L.L. No. 24-2011]
(1) 
The benefit to the applicant of the proposed zone changes, above an as-of-right project on the subject property;
(2) 
The value to the Town and hamlet of achieving the proposed development or redevelopment project in the project location, including, but not limited to, whether the project:
(a) 
Advances the goals of the Town's Comprehensive Plan and other adopted plans relevant to the project location;
(b) 
Eliminates a nonconforming use;
(c) 
Meets an established community need;
(d) 
Involves site rehabilitation or reclamation;
(e) 
Will set a model for future area development or redevelopment; or
(f) 
Stimulates desired economic development activity;
(3) 
Community impacts anticipated as a result of the PDD that cannot be mitigated through project design and traffic system improvements. Such impacts include, but are not limited to, long-term costs of community services and development inducing impacts;
(4) 
The cost to the applicant of providing the community benefit, with such costs verified by independent, fair appraisals, professionally prepared estimates and/or other relevant documentation as may be appropriate to the specific benefit(s) under consideration;
(5) 
Whether the project is in a school district with unredeemed Pine Barrens credits. If so, priority shall be given to PBC redemption as all or part of the required community benefit;
(6) 
Whether the applicant proposes project features that would otherwise be required of development on the subject property through the site plan, subdivision, architectural, SEQRA, or other regulatory review process. Said features shall not qualify as community benefits.
(7) 
Whether affordable housing is an appropriate public benefit, that is, when there is a demonstrated need in the hamlet where the project would be located for the type of affordable units proposed.
(a) 
In making said determination, consideration shall be given to the need for affordable housing in the particular hamlet, the appropriateness of the proposed site, the environmental suitability of the site, and the protection of community character;
(b) 
In making said determination, the density incentive should not result in an adverse impact on the affected school district or other special assessment district.

§ 330-246 Development standards for specific PDD classifications.

[Amended 11-13-2001 by L.L. No. 51-2001; 6-25-2002 by L.L. No. 19-2002; 12-23-2002 by L.L. No. 57-2002; 2-22-2005 by L.L. No. 5-2005]
A. 
Residential Planned Development District (RPDD). The RPDD is predominantly intended to encourage flexible residential development with provisions for recreational, agricultural, community uses, services and activities normally accessory to residential use, while maximizing the preservation of natural vegetation and resources. Clustering, open space preservation, and the most efficient utilization of transportation systems, utilities and public services are intended to be achieved by the RPDD. The intent is to support creative, desirable and affordable private residential development by providing incentives and flexibility which encourage the use of innovative planning and design techniques.
[Amended 9-13-2005 by L.L. No. 50-2005]
(1) 
Requirements.
(a) 
The RPDD shall be beneficial, compatible and harmonious with the surrounding land uses, and the goals and objectives set forth in this article and the Comprehensive Plan must be maintained and furthered.
(b) 
No RPDD shall be located within the Tidal Floodplain and Ocean Beach Overlay District.
(c) 
There shall be no commercial or industrial enterprises as a principal use within an RPDD.
(d) 
Any building that contains four, five, or six dwelling units shall be equipped with an automatic fire sprinkler system in accordance with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 13D Standards.
[Added 9-11-2007 by L.L. No. 45-2007]
(e) 
Any building that contains seven or more dwelling units shall be equipped with an automatic fire sprinkler system in accordance with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 13R Standards.
[Added 9-11-2007 by L.L. No. 45-2007]
(2) 
Yield.
(a) 
The initial yield for the receiving site shall be determined by a yield map prepared in accordance with the existing zoning set.
(b) 
The resultant yield of an RPDD shall be the sum of the receiving parcel yield plus the density obtained from the transfer of development rights or PBCs from any sending parcels as set forth in this chapter.
(c) 
Notwithstanding the provisions of the aforementioned subsections, the yield may be increased, at the discretion of the Town Board, to achieve any of the goals set forth in this chapter, or to provide for community benefits or public facility that satisfies an identified public need as recommended by the Comprehensive Plan or as established by the Town Board, excluding common and/or requisite public improvements. New York State Law permits the Town to utilize incentive zoning for the purpose of obtaining community benefits. New York State Town Law § 261-b of the State of New York defines "community benefits or amenities" as " open space, housing for persons of low or moderate income, parks, elder care, day care, or other specific physical, social or cultural amenities, or cash in lieu thereof, of benefit to the residents of the community authorized by the Town Board." The Town's Master Plan recommends that the use of planned development district (PDD) zoning for large senior housing or multifamily housing developments, whereby additional density can be achieved through the transfer of development rights (TDRs) or Pine Barren Credits (PBCs), such that there is no substantial increase in the number of dwelling units or population within the Town because development has been redirected in order to channel growth and preserve more ecologically sensitive lands.
(d) 
However, in no case shall the residential yield exceed two units per acre unless the site is served by public water and the Suffolk County Department of Health Services has approved the method of sewage treatment.
(3) 
Permitted uses. Within the RPDD, the following residential uses or residential accessory uses shall be permitted, subject to compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations:
(a) 
One-family, two-family and multiple dwellings.
(b) 
Residential condominiums or residential cooperatives, multifamily housing developments, senior housing developments (both ownership units and rental apartments).
(c) 
Nursing homes, proprietary rest homes, life-care facilities and retirement communities.
(d) 
Mobile home parks.
(e) 
Agriculture, animal husbandry and horse stabling.
(f) 
Golf courses.
(g) 
Tennis, handball and racquetball courts.
(h) 
Swimming pools.
(i) 
Boat launching and docking facilities.
(j) 
Parks, playgrounds, basketball courts and trails.
(k) 
Indoor recreation facilities (nonprofit).
(l) 
Any use not specifically identified above but otherwise permitted or special exception in the existing underlying residential zoning district.
(4) 
Universal design. To the extent practicable, the development shall incorporate universal design standards to reduce problems meeting requirements for accessibility pursuant to the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Fair Housing Act (FHA). Universal design, as defined in § 330-5, is a flexible, inclusive process aimed at enabling all occupants access regardless of size, age, or abilities, including but not limited to accessibility code compliance. The diverse needs of the development's population should be accommodated in a cost-effective yet dignified and pleasant manner assuring a convenient, safe, and secure environment for all persons residing in such development, whether active or physically challenged, youthful or elderly.
(a) 
Residential units, to the extent practicable, shall incorporate adaptable design or visitable design concepts by conformance to the supplemental design requirements listed in Chapter 123, Article IV, Universal Design, as applicable to high-density residential development designated as "senior housing" or "multifamily housing."
(b) 
For retirement communities and other age-restricted residential planned developments, due consideration shall be given in planning walks, ramps, and driveways to prevent slipping or stumbling, and handrails and ample places for rest shall be provided. Gradients of walks shall not exceed 5%, and single riser grade changes in walks shall not be permitted, unless it is impractical to do so because of terrain or unusual characteristics of the site. All outdoor areas available to residents shall permit such residents to move about without danger and with minimum effort.
(5) 
Architectural review. All signage and construction shall be subject to the review of the Board of Architectural Review pursuant to Article XIX of this chapter, or its successor. Building prototypes and design shall reflect indigenous architecture and shall be built with consideration to the special character of Southampton as a rural and resort community. Particularly for large developments comprised of townhouses or detached single-family units, in choice of exterior finish, care shall be taken to avoid the appearance of a development in which all units appear exactly the same.
(6) 
Safeguards. Retirement communities and other age-restricted residential planned developments shall be owner-occupied, and no rental of any portion of the unit or subletting of the unit itself shall be permitted. Appropriate safeguards should be instituted to forestall seasonal rentals of any portion of the units or the units in general, including the imposition of covenants and restrictions binding upon all owners and occupants.
(7) 
Standards on location. For an RPDD which contains residential condominiums or residential cooperatives, nursing homes, proprietary rest homes, life-care facilities, retirement communities, senior housing or multifamily housing developments, or mobile home parks, the site should be located within a convenient distance from a central business district or hamlet center or village center, which provides shopping, access to public transportation, and community facilities. Generally, all multi-unit developments involving higher density prototypes (e.g., townhouses, apartment buildings, attached housing, etc.) are to be within 1/2 mile of a hamlet center or village center.
(a) 
Hamlet Centers and Village Centers.
[1] 
Hamlet centers and village centers, as defined in § 330-5, are identified in the Town Comprehensive Plan and further classified as "major hamlet centers," "small hamlet centers," "major village centers" and "Town business centers." A Map of Hamlet Centers and Village Centers is on file in the office of the Town Clerk. Hamlet centers contain zoning districts such as Village Business Districts (VB), Shopping Center Business Districts (SCB), or hamlet-scale mixed-use business districts such as Hamlet Commercial/Residential (HC) which may incorporate a grocery store, community pantry, and personal services. Senior housing and multifamily housing developments may only be permitted if located a short and safe walking distance no greater than 1/2 mile to a hamlet center or village center or Shopping Center Business (SCB) District or the site is within a short and safe walking distance no greater than 500 feet from a public transit area, as defined in § 330-5 (e.g., municipal bus stop or train station).
[2] 
"Short and safe walking distance" shall be construed as meaning convenient and having adequate sidewalks, street lights, and other pedestrian-friendly, traffic-calming amenities presently available or shall be established as a condition of approval for the RPDD designation.
(b) 
Waivers for small senior housing or multifamily housing developments. Waivers to the above siting requirement for an RPDD designation are applicable to small multifamily or senior housing developments, that is those developments which consist of twenty (20) units or less, provided some other public benefit is conveyed by such waiver. New York State Town Law defines "community benefits" to include "housing for low to moderate income persons."
(c) 
Waivers for other senior housing or multifamily housing developments (e.g. large or medium, as defined in Article III, Senior Citizen Zone, § 330-12; and Article IV, Multifamily Planned Residential Development District, § 330-17, or more than 75 units). In certain cases, waivers to the above siting requirements may be applicable to other senior housing or multifamily housing developments in the following circumstances:
[1] 
If consistent with a Hamlet Study, Area Study, PDD Study or other planning study adopted as an Update to the Town Comprehensive Plan, such as a site identified for redevelopment or incentive zoning (e.g., potential sites identified for multi-unit housing, golf course retirement community, community renewal / redevelopment, elimination of a preexisting nonconforming use, etc.), and the use of such innovative planning floating zone assists the Town in realizing substantial community benefits.
[2] 
In cases where the proposed senior housing or multifamily housing development is not located a short and safe walking distance to a hamlet center, village center or a public transit area, the applicant shall provide a shuttle bus service and/or other transportation mitigation measures.
[3] 
Implementation of Central Pine Barrens Plan and/or other transfer of development rights programs. For example, waivers could be provided to certain Residential Planned Development Districts (RPDDs) in which additional density is achieved through the transfer of development rights (TDRs) or Pine Barrens Credits (PBCs), whereby there is no substantial increase of dwelling units or population within the same school district because development has been redirected in order to channel growth and preserve more ecologically sensitive lands, and the use of such innovative planning areas also assists the Town in realizing substantial public benefits. TDRs may also originate from parcels determined to be important to protect community character, including but not limited to scenic greenways and greenspace within developed neighborhoods within the same school districts.
(d) 
Additional criteria for waivers from aforementioned location standards for senior citizen housing developments, life-care facilities, retirement communities, and multifamily housing developments; procedure.
[1] 
Concurrent with an application seeking planned development district designation, an applicant seeking a waiver from the aforementioned location standards shall make such request in writing to the Town Board with a copy filed in the office of the Town Clerk. The applicant shall indicate the following:
[a] 
A project description and the reasons prompting the request for a waiver of aforementioned location standards.
[b] 
The total number of housing units proposed and whether or not the applicant is seeking to develop a small senior housing development, as defined herein as those developments which consist of 20 units or less.
[c] 
The nature of the public benefits provided by the proposed senior citizen housing development, including the number of units proposed as set-aside units for low-, moderate-, or middle-income persons.
[d] 
Whether or not the applicant is or is working with a bonafide nonprofit corporation and guarantees to develop and maintain a substantial (e.g., 50%) portion of the resultant housing at a purchase price or tenant cost within the moderate- to middle-income housing market.
[e] 
Whether the site is identified as a potential site or redevelopment site suitable for multi-unit housing development or incentive zoning in the Town's Master Plan or a Hamlet Study or Area Study or other planning study adopted as an update to the Comprehensive Plan (e.g., potential site identified for multi-unit housing, a retirement community with a public golf course amenity, community renewal/redevelopment, elimination of a preexisting, nonconforming use, etc.).
[f] 
Whether or not the proposed project entails transfers of development rights or redemption of Pine Barrens Credits (PBCs) to achieve additional density or yield.
[2] 
The Town Board shall hold a public hearing to consider such request for a waiver from the aforementioned location standards and may request advisory reports from the Town Planning and Development Administrator. The public hearing may be held concurrently with the hearing to consider comments on the petition for a change-of-zone, provided that the notice of hearing specifically references the applicant's request for a waiver of the aforementioned location standards.
[3] 
The Town Board shall authorize a waiver of the aforementioned location standards as a provision expressly noted in the local law permitting a zone change to PDD following a public hearing, provided that a favorable determination is made by the Town Board in its findings based on the criteria noted below in the Subsection A(7)(e)[2].
(e) 
Findings by the Town Board.
[1] 
In determining whether to grant a zone change to a planned development district involving senior housing or multifamily housing, the Town Board, in addition to its usual discretion in considering a change of zone, shall also consider the need for additional senior housing and multifamily housing in the particular hamlet, the nature and extent to which the applicant intends to provide moderate-income housing units, the appropriateness of the site, environmental considerations, the proposed development design to accommodate an increased density, and any potentially significant negative impacts to any special assessment district in which the proposed development is located. In addition, the Town Board shall find that the housing development is consistent with the recommendations of the Comprehensive Plan, will be beneficial, compatible and harmonious with the surrounding land uses and will not have a significant adverse impact upon the environment, or a special assessment district in which the site is located.
[2] 
In deciding whether or not to authorize a waiver of the aforementioned location standards, in addition to the foregoing, the Town Board shall consider the following:
[a] 
The nature or the public benefits conveyed by the waiver, including the provision of housing within the means of low- to moderate-income persons.
[b] 
Whether or not the proposed housing development involves the transfer of development rights or redemption of Pine Barrens Credits (PBCs) or a cash-in-lieu amount equivalent to ensure off-site preservation or acquisition of interests in land in order to achieve the development yield or higher density, excluding any requisite below-market-rate units reserved for persons of low, moderate, or middle income with long-term affordability restrictions proposed by covenants and restrictions.
[c] 
The findings by the Town Board and all conditions associated with a waiver of the location standards shall be specified in the local law noted in Subsection A(7)(d)[3] above. The Town Board may require supplemental design standards, TDRs or additional affordable set-aside units or other community benefits, and other mitigation measures
[3] 
As a change of zone or amendment to the Zoning Map is a discretionary act by the legislative body, the Town Board may find that any development or redevelopment of the property is best accommodated under its existing zoning or an alternative zoning overlay district or zoning classification.
(8) 
Fire protection. For high-density residential development designated as "senior housing" or "multifamily housing,” the RPDD site plans shall provide access for firefighting equipment and personnel and shall provide hydrants in such number and location and with such water pressure as may be determined adequate by the Planning Board, based upon the recommendation of the Town Engineer and the Fire Department and Emergency Medical Services provider having jurisdiction. In the interest of public safety, key boxes for emergency access are required in certain circumstances involving electronic security driveway gates within RPDD site plans (e.g., gated community) and shall be in conformance with the recommendations of the public safety agencies providing the primary fire protection and emergency medical services to the location. Compliance with the provisions of Chapter 330, Article XXX, Driveway Standards, is also required.
[Added 7-28-2009 by L.L. No. 32-2009]
B. 
Mixed-Use Planned Development Districts (MUPDD). The Mixed-Use Planned Development District (MUPDD) is intended to provide a flexible mixture of usage among residential, commercial services and institutional uses while maximizing the preservation of natural vegetation and resources. The commercial uses provided in this district should provide convenient services to the residential uses therein. Clustering, open space preservation, elimination of sprawling complexes and developments, and the most efficient utilization of transportation systems, utilities and public services are intended to be achieved by the MUPDD. The intent is to support creative, desirable and affordable private residential and nonresidential development by providing incentives and flexibility which encourage the use of innovative planning and design techniques.
[Amended 9-13-2005 by L.L. No. 50-2005]
(1) 
Requirements.
(a) 
The MUPDD shall be beneficial, compatible and harmonious with the surrounding land uses, and the goals and objectives set forth in this article and the Comprehensive Plan must be maintained and furthered.
(b) 
No MUPDD shall be located within the Tidal Floodplain and Ocean Beach Overlay District.
(c) 
Any building that contains four, five, or six dwelling units shall be equipped with an automatic fire sprinkler system in accordance with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 13D Standards.
[Added 9-11-2007 by L.L. No. 45-2007]
(d) 
Any building that contains seven or more dwelling units shall be equipped with an automatic fire sprinkler system in accordance with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 13R Standards.
[Added 9-11-2007 by L.L. No. 45-2007]
(2) 
Yield.
(a) 
The initial yield for the receiving site shall be determined by a yield map prepared in accordance with the existing zoning set.
(b) 
The resultant yield of an MUPDD shall be the sum of the receiving parcel yield plus the density obtained from the transfer of development rights or PBCs from any sending parcels as set forth in this chapter. Each development right or Pine Barrens credit shall be equivalent to a sewage flow rate of 300 gallons per acre per day as described in the Suffolk County Department of Health Services standards and/or up to a two-percent increase in building coverage, floor area, height or building mass. However, there shall not be an overall increase in building coverage, floor area, height or building mass greater than 10% over the requirements of the underlying zone (i.e., where 30% is the maximum coverage in the underlying zone, a maximum of 40% may be permitted).
(c) 
Notwithstanding the provisions of the aforementioned subsections, the yield or the building coverage, floor area, height, or building mass may be increased, at the discretion of the Town Board, to achieve any of the goals set forth in this chapter, or to provide for community benefits or public facility that satisfies an identified public need as recommended by the Comprehensive Plan or as established by the Town Board, excluding common and/or requisite public improvements. New York State Law permits the Town to utilize incentive zoning for the purpose of obtaining community benefits. New York State Town Law § 261-b of the State of New York defines "community benefits or amenities" as "open space, housing for persons of low or moderate income, parks, elder care, day care, or other specific physical, social or cultural amenities, or cash in lieu thereof, of benefit to the residents of the community authorized by the Town Board." The Town's Master Plan recommends that the use of planned development district (PDD) zoning for large senior housing or multifamily housing developments, whereby additional density can be achieved through the transfer of development rights (TDRs) or Pine Barrens Credits (PBCs), such that there is no substantial increase in the number of dwelling units or population within the Town because development has been redirected in order to channel growth and preserve more ecologically sensitive lands.
(d) 
In no case shall the residential yield exceed two units per acre unless the site is served by public water and the Suffolk County Department of Health Services has approved the method of sewage treatment.
(3) 
Permitted uses. Within the MUPDD, the following residential uses or residential accessory uses shall be permitted, subject to compliance with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations:
(a) 
One-family, two-family and multiple dwellings.
(b)

(4) 
Universal design. To the extent practicable, the development, if it includes residential condominiums or residential cooperatives, multifamily housing developments, senior housing developments, retirement communities, life-care facilities (both ownership units and rental apartments, with the exception of accessory apartments or apartments above stores), shall incorporate universal design standards to reduce problems meeting requirements for accessibility pursuant to the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Fair Housing Act (FHA). Universal design, as defined in § 330-5, is a flexible, inclusive process aimed at enabling all occupants access regardless of size, age, or abilities, including but not limited to accessibility code compliance. The diverse needs of the development's population should be accommodated in a cost-effective yet dignified and pleasant manner assuring a convenient, safe, and secure environment for all persons residing in such development, whether active or physically challenged, youthful or elderly.
(a)

All outdoor areas available to residents shall permit such residents to move about without danger and with minimum effort.
(5) 
Architectural review. All signage and construction shall be subject to the review of the Board of Architectural Review pursuant to Article XIX of this chapter, or its successor. Building prototypes and design shall reflect indigenous architecture and shall be built with consideration to the special character of Southampton as a rural and resort community. Particularly for large developments comprised of townhouses or detached single-family units, in choice of exterior finish, care shall be taken to avoid the appearance of a development in which all units appear exactly the same.
(6) 
Safeguards. Retirement communities and other age-restricted residential planned developments shall be owner-occupied, and no rental of any portion of the unit or subletting of the unit itself shall be permitted. Appropriate safeguards should be instituted to forestall seasonal rentals of any portion of the units or the units in general, including the imposition of covenants and restrictions binding upon all owners and occupants.
(7) 
Standards on location. For an MUPDD which contains residential condominiums or residential cooperatives, nursing homes, proprietary rest homes, life-care facilities, retirement communities, senior housing or multifamily housing developments, mobile home parks, the site should be located within a convenient distance from a central business district, hamlet center or village center, which provides shopping, access to public transportation, and community facilities. Generally, all developments involving higher density prototypes (e.g., townhouses, apartment buildings, attached housing, etc.) are to be within 1/2 mile of a hamlet center or village center.
(a) 
Hamlet centers and village centers.
[Amended 1-10-2006 by L.L. No. 4-2006]
[1] 
Hamlet centers and village centers, as defined in § 330-5, are identified in the Town Comprehensive Plan and further classified as "major hamlet centers," "small hamlet centers," "major village centers" and "Town business centers." A Map of Hamlet Centers and Village Centers is on file in the office of Town Clerk. Hamlet centers contain zoning districts such as Village Business Districts (VB), Shopping Center Business Districts (SCB), or hamlet-scale mixed-use business districts such as Hamlet Office/Residential (HO) or Hamlet Commercial/Residential (HC) which may incorporate a grocery store, community pantry, and personal services. Senior housing and multifamily housing developments may only be permitted if located a short and safe walking distance no greater than 1/2 mile to a hamlet center or village center or Shopping Center Business (SCB) District or the site is within a short and safe walking distance no greater than 500 feet from a public transit area, as defined in § 330-5 (e.g., municipal bus stop or train station).
[2] 
"Short and safe walking distance" shall be construed as meaning convenient and having adequate sidewalks, street lights, and other pedestrian-friendly, traffic-calming amenities presently available or shall be established as a condition of approval for the MUPDD designation.
(b) 
Waivers for small senior housing or multifamily housing developments. Waivers to the above siting requirement for an MUPDD designation are applicable to small multifamily or senior housing developments, that is those developments which consist of 20 units or less, provided some other public benefit is conveyed by such waiver. New York State Town Law defines "community benefits" to include "housing for low to moderate income persons."
(c) 
Waivers for other senior housing or multifamily housing developments (e.g., large or medium, as defined in, Article III, Senior Citizen Zone § 330-12, and Article IV, Multifamily Planned Residential Development District, § 330-17, or more than 75 units). In certain cases, waivers to the above siting requirements may be applicable to other senior housing or multifamily housing developments in the following circumstances:
[1] 
If consistent with a Hamlet Study, Area Study, PDD Study or other planning study adopted as an update to the Town Comprehensive Plan, such as a site identified for redevelopment or incentive zoning (e.g., potential sites identified for multi-unit housing, golf course retirement community, community renewal/redevelopment, elimination of a preexisting nonconforming use, etc.), and the use of such innovative planning floating zone assists the Town in realizing substantial community benefits.
[2] 
In cases where the proposed senior housing or multifamily housing development is not located a short and safe walking distance to a hamlet center, village center or a public transit area, the applicant shall provide a shuttle bus service and/or other mitigation measures.
[3] 
Implementation of Central Pine Barrens Plan and/or other transfer of development rights programs. For example, waivers could be provided to certain Residential Planned Development Districts (RPDDs) in which additional density is achieved through the transfer of development rights (TDRs) or Pine Barrens Credits (PBCs), whereby there is no substantial increase of dwelling units or population within the Town because development has been redirected in order to channel growth and preserve more ecologically sensitive lands, and the use of such innovative planning areas also assists the Town in realizing substantial public benefits. The Town's Master Plan recommends that the use of planned development district (PDD) zoning for large senior housing or multifamily housing developments, whereby additional density can be achieved through the transfer of development rights (TDRs) or Pine Barrens Credits (PBCs), such that there is no substantial increase in the number of dwelling units or population within the Town because development has been redirected in order to channel growth and preserve more ecologically sensitive lands.
(d) 
Additional criteria for waivers from aforementioned location standards for senior citizen housing developments, life-care facilities, retirement communities, and multifamily housing developments; procedure.
[1] 
Concurrent with an application seeking planned development district designation, an applicant seeking a waiver from the aforementioned location standards shall make such request in writing to the Town Board with a copy filed in the office of the Town Clerk. The applicant shall indicate the following:
[a] 
A project description and the reasons prompting the request for a waiver of aforementioned location standards.
[b] 
The total number of housing units proposed and whether or not the applicant is seeking to develop a small senior housing development, as defined herein as those developments which consist of twenty (20) units or less.
[c] 
The nature of the public benefits provided by the proposed senior citizen housing development, including the number of units proposed as set-aside units for low-, moderate-, or middle-income persons.
[d] 
Whether or not the applicant is or is working with a bonafide nonprofit corporation and guarantees to develop and maintain a substantial portion of the resultant housing at a purchase price or tenant cost within the low- or lower-middle-income housing market.
[e] 
Whether the site is identified as a potential site or redevelopment site suitable for multi-unit housing development or incentive zoning in the Town's Master Plan or a Hamlet Study or Area Study or other planning study adopted as an update to the Comprehensive Plan (e.g., potential site identified for multi-unit housing, a retirement community with a public golf course amenity, community renewal/redevelopment, elimination of a preexisting, nonconforming use, etc.).
[f] 
Whether or not the proposed project entails transfers of development rights or redemption of Pine Barrens Credits (PBCs) to achieve additional density or yield.
[2] 
The Town Board shall hold a public hearing to consider such request for a waiver from the aforementioned location standards and may request advisory reports from the Town Planning and Development Administrator and Planning Staff. The public hearing may be held concurrently with the hearing to consider comments on the petition for a change-of-zone, provided that the notice of hearing specifically references the applicant's request for a waiver of the aforementioned location standards.
[3] 
The Town Board shall authorize a waiver of the aforementioned location standards as a provision expressly noted in the local law permitting a zone change to PDD following a public hearing, provided that a favorable determination is made by the Town Board in its findings based on the criteria noted below in the Subsection B(7)(e)[2].
(e) 
Findings by the Town Board.
[1] 
In determining whether to grant a zone change to a planned development district involving senior housing or multifamily housing, the Town Board, in addition to its usual discretion in considering a change of zone, shall also consider the need for additional senior housing and multifamily housing in the particular hamlet, the nature and extent to which the applicant intends to provide moderate-income housing units, the appropriateness of the site, environmental considerations, the proposed development design to accommodate an increased density, and any potentially significant negative impacts to any special assessment district in which the proposed development is located. In addition, the Town Board shall find that the housing development is consistent with the recommendations of the Comprehensive Plan, will be beneficial, compatible and harmonious with the surrounding land uses and will not have a significant adverse impact upon the environment, or a special assessment district in which the site is located.
[2] 
In deciding whether or not to authorize a waiver of the aforementioned location standards, in addition to the foregoing, the Town Board shall consider the following:
[a] 
The nature or the public benefits conveyed by the waiver, including the provision of housing within the means of low- to moderate-income persons.
[b] 
Whether or not the proposed housing development involves the transfer of development rights or redemption of Pine Barrens Credits (PBCs) or a cash-in-lieu amount equivalent to ensure off-site preservation or acquisition of interests in land in order to achieve the development yield or higher density, excluding any requisite below-market-rate units reserved for persons of low, moderate, or middle income with long-term affordability restrictions proposed by covenants and restrictions.
[c] 
The findings by the Town Board and all conditions associated with a waiver of the location standards shall be specified in the local law noted in Subsection B(7)(d)[2] above. The Town Board may require supplemental design standards, TDRs or additional affordable set-aside units or other community benefits, and other mitigation measures.
[3] 
As a change of zone or amendment to the Zoning Map is a discretionary act by the legislative body, the Town Board may find that any development or redevelopment of the property is best accommodated under its existing zoning or an alternative zoning overlay district or zoning classification.
(8) 
Fire protection. For high-density residential development designated as "senior housing" or "multifamily housing," the MUPDD site plans shall provide access for firefighting equipment and personnel and shall provide hydrants in such number and location and with such water pressure as may be determined adequate by the Planning Board, based upon the recommendation of the Town Engineer and the public safety agencies providing the primary fire protection and emergency medical services to the location. In the interest of public safety, key boxes for emergency access are required in certain circumstances involving electronic security driveway gates within MUPDD site plans (e.g., gated community) and shall be in conformance with the recommendations of the public safety agencies providing the primary fire protection and emergency medical services to the location. Compliance with the provisions of Chapter 330, Article XXX, Driveway Standards, is also required.

[1] 
Landscaping specifics.
[a] 
The applicant shall provide a heavily landscaped buffer between the Montauk Highway and the front of the proposed supermarket. The intent of the buffer is to visually screen the facade of the proposed supermarket from Montauk Highway. The landscape buffer shall be planted with at least 12 shade trees which may include but shall not be limited to Red Maple, Honeylocust, Sweet Gum and Red Oak. These trees shall have a minimum caliber of five inches and shall be full head specimens. In addition to the shade tree plantings, the applicant will provide a combination of ornamental trees, deciduous and evergreen shrubs, perennials and annuals as foundation plantings to further soften the appearance of the proposed supermarket. The desired overall effect of this landscaping is to visually screen the front of the supermarket to lessen its visual impact and thereby reduce the effect of the mass of the building as it faces Montauk Highway.
[b] 
The applicant shall provide a minimum of two large landscape areas within the interior parking area which shall include berming and planting to break up the expanse or asphalt. These areas shall include shade trees including but not limited to Red Maple, Honeylocust, Sweet Gum or Red Oak. These trees shall have a minimum caliber of three inches and shall be full-head specimens. The applicant shall also provide ornamental trees with a minimum height of 12 feet. These ornamental trees shall include but may not be limited to Amur Maple, Hawthorne, Red Bud, Shad or Japanese Dogwood. The applicant will also provide a combination of deciduous and evergreen shrubs, perennials and annuals along with benches and other site furniture in order create a pleasant visual barrier of the parking and substantial landscape area within the parking area.
[c] 
The applicant shall also provide a small park area. This area will be adjacent to the western access along Montauk Highway, and it will be north of the proposed parking area that abuts Montauk Highway. This area shall include but may not be limited to decorative paving, street trees, ornamental trees, deciduous shrubs, evergreen shrubs, perennials and annuals along with a garden structure, either a gazebo or pergola. This area shall be used as a sitting area for the use of the general public.
[d] 
There will be a fence installed along the eastern boundary of SCTM 900-263-3-20 from Montauk Highway to the railroad property. The design and materials of this fence will be subject to the approval by the Planning Board. The inclusion of the fence does not preclude the Planning Board from determining that future cross access with the adjoining property owner is appropriate.
[2] 
On Ponquogue Avenue, the landscaped area in front of SCTM No. 900-263-3-14.1 will have a setback of 25 feet, and the landscape plan will include trees as well as indigenous ground cover.
(l) 
A comprehensive and unified design and location plan for all signage associated with the proposed Mixed-Use Planned Development District shall be consistent with both the guidelines of the Hampton Bays Hamlet Center Strategy, and internal signs that are seen from the exterior will be limited to 20% of the window facade, and includes temporary interior signs. Internal and external neon signs are prohibited. Two detached signs will be allowed to have a setback of less than 40 feet from the street line as required by § 330-87. One detached sign will be for identification and located in the landscape area proposed along the southern property adjacent to Ponquogue and the other on the west side of the intersection of Montauk highway and the roadway proposed in the middle of the development.
(m) 
A comprehensive and unified pedestrian access and circulation plan shall be submitted in conjunction with the final site plan. The plan shall incorporate public sidewalk, streetscape improvements including trees and internal pedestrian walkway improvements recommended by the Hampton Bays Hamlet Center Strategy and subject to approval by the Town Planning Board.
(n) 
A comprehensive lighting plan shall be submitted in conjunction with the site plan for review and approval by the Town Planning Board. This plan will expand the Hampton Bays Lighting District through the installation of identical lighting fixtures already present within the district. These lighting fixtures will be extended along the perimeter of this MUPDD along Montauk Highway and Ponquogue Avenue.
(o) 
Off-site and internal vehicular access and circulation improvements, recommended by the April 1999 traffic engineering analysis prepared by L. K. McLean Associates, P.C., as part of the Hampton Bays Hamlet Center Strategy, shall be incorporated as part of the final site plan. The Town Planning Board may require further traffic analysis in accordance with § 330-183-B(3) of the Town Code. The vehicular access and circulation improvements to be addressed by the final site plan shall include but not be limited to the following:
[1] 
Montauk Highway at Ponquogue Avenue/Squiretown Road. In order to improve the capacity of this intersection, eastbound and westbound left turn lanes should be installed along Montauk Highway. The lanes should be 10 feet wide and 75 feet long. The remaining pavement width should be sufficient to accommodate eastbound and westbound through lanes and parking on both sides of the street. Since this intersection is under the jurisdiction of the Suffolk County Department of Public Works, its concurrence is required.
[2] 
Ponquogue Avenue at Good Ground Road. Anticipated traffic conditions after full implementation of the PDD development dictate that a traffic signal be installed at this location. The traffic signal must include pre-emption capability (i.e., it would be connected to the Long Island Rail Road track circuit so that the proper signal sequence can be activated to clear the track area when a train approaches). It must also be interconnected with the existing traffic signal at Montauk Highway/Ponquogue Avenue/Squiretown Road. (It should be noted that the county will be studying the Montauk Highway intersection to determine if railroad pre-emption should be provided at that location as well). Based on the data analysis, it appears that the intersection can accommodate some site-generated traffic before it reaches its capacity, prior to installation of a traffic signal. If the proposed development is implemented in stages, traffic signal installation should be required prior to the occurrence of 50% of site-generated traffic.
[3] 
Site access to Montauk Highway. Provision of two access points to Montauk Highway, with the westerly access aligning opposite the exit from St. Rosalie's Church, will have a traffic light. There will be appropriate pedestrian markings for the crosswalk that will cross Montauk Highway at this traffic light to ensure safe pedestrian crossing between St. Rosalie's Church and the Hampton Bays Town Center. Again, proposed site access location and traffic control devices along Montauk Highway are subject to county approval.
(p) 
Off-street parking and truck loading improvements incorporated as part of the final site plan shall be in accordance with §§ 330-92 through 330-101 of the Town Code. The final site plan's off-street parking and truck loading improvements shall also be designed to address the recommendations of the Hampton Bays Hamlet Center Strategy. All garbage, electric and gas meters will be screened.
(q) 
The applicant, pursuant to § 330-244 of the Town Code, shall transfer nine development rights or Pine Barrens Credits (PBC's) to the subject Planned Development District. At least four development rights or PBC's shall be transferred prior to obtaining a building permit for the 40,000 square foot grocery store, to be situated on SCTM No. 900-263-3-20, and the remaining five development rights or PBC's shall be transferred prior to the issuance of a certificate of occupancy for the grocery store and/or development of the remaining parcels. In the event that the applicant is unable to facilitate the transfer of all or a portion of the required development rights or PBC'S, the Town Board may require, in lieu thereof, a payment to the Town of a sum, to be determined by the Town Board, representing the fair market value of the required development rights or PBC's or the equivalent amount of land or interests therein. If cash is accepted in lieu of the transfer of development rights, provisions shall be made for such sum to be deposited in a trust fund to be used by the Town Board exclusively for the acquisition of lands or interests therein for open space or recreation purposes within the boundaries of the Hampton Bays School District.
(r) 
The applicant shall also provide an additional specific community benefit and amenity to the Hampton Bays Hamlet Center in the form of public sidewalk and streetscape improvements associated with Parcel SCTM Nos. 900-263-3-14.1, 900-2633-15, 900-263-3-16, 900-263-3-17.1, 900-263-3-18.1, 900-263-3-19 and 900-263-3-20 fronting Montauk Highway and SCTM Nos. 900-263-3-14.1 and 900-263-3-11 fronting Ponquogue Avenue as defined in Subsections B(3)(k), (m) and (n) of this section and as recommended by the referenced landscaping of Hampton Bays Hamlet Center Strategy and as approved by the Town Planning Board as part of the final site plan.

Hampton Classic Recreation/Tourism Planned Development District (RTPDD).
[Added 8-10-1999 by L.L. No. 22-1999]
(1) 
Purpose and objectives. The Hampton Classic Recreation/Tourism Planned Development District (RTPDD) has been structured to accomplish the findings, purpose and long-term goals established by the Town Board as part of Article XXVI, Planned Development District, of the Town Code. The Hampton Classic RTPDD encourages the development of a centralized area of recreation, cultural, entertainment and tourism facilities to serve the Town's tourism industry. The McNamara property is the site of the annual charitable special event known as "The Hampton Classic Horse Show" that is one of the premiere equestrian competitions in the world. The Hampton Classic Recreation/Tourism Planned Development District encourages the McNamara family and the Hampton Classic Horse Show, Inc. to carefully design, maintain, construct and use certain buildings and structures related to the annual eight-day special event without the need to annually construct and remove said structures. Such a carefully designed facility will help minimize friction between the special event and the nearby residential area, allow for buffering and hedgerow plantings and reduce congestion and other environmental hazards. The Hampton Classic RTPDD will provide community benefits and amenities by requiring the property to be maintained undeveloped and open and available for agricultural uses. The Hampton Classic RTPDD also supports implementation of the Town's Comprehensive Plan, particularly its recognition of the growth of the equine industry on the East End and the need for infrastructure for events such as horse shows.

G. 
Agricultural PDD.
[Added 10-23-2001 by L.L. No. 43-2001]
(1) 
Purpose.
(a) 
The Agricultural PDD is intended to encourage the protection of farming and the business of farming in the Town of Southampton. The importance of agriculture as both a vital local economic base and as a land form that provides the Town of Southampton with much of its rural, rustic character and charm, has been recognized throughout the several regulatory mechanisms provided in the Code of the Town of Southampton. The Town Board also acknowledges that the impact of all regulatory mechanisms must be balanced against maintaining the farm owner’s equity in order to preserve the vitality of the agricultural industry.
(b) 
To continue farming as a viable family business, Southampton’s farm families must engage in frequent, if not constant, review of all available short- and long-term planning options. These options include agricultural tax abatement programs, land preservation programs offered by private conservation organizations, the Town, county and/or state, subdivision and other sophisticated estate-planning techniques. Changing regulations at the local level can have a devastating impact on the ability of a farmer to maintain his equity. These regulations recognize this.
(c) 
The 1999 Comprehensive Plan Update recommends a number of strategies to preserve a maximum amount of the remaining agricultural land base while also maximizing the potential for agricultural use. It is the intent of these regulations to provide a system of zoning incentives and bonuses for development that provide substantial community benefits or amenities in accordance with § 261-b of the Town Law of the State of New York and § 247 of the General Municipal Law of the State of New York.
(d) 
Under the Agricultural PDD rezoning, the farm owner and the Town will enter into an agricultural easement under which the land will remain in agricultural production, as defined by § 301 of the Agriculture and Markets Law, for a minimum of 10 years. During this limited period while the easement remains in effect, the landowner will be granted specific density and open space set-asides percentages. While the easement remains in place, the Town and the landowner can explore a number of preservation options, including purchase of development rights, transfer of development rights, outright acquisition, or a conservation opportunities subdivision. The legislation also provides the Town with an opportunity to purchase the property outright or to purchase development rights prior to the expiration of the agricultural easement.
[Amended 6-8-2010 by L.L. No. 18-2010]
(2) 
Requirements and incentives.
(a) 
A parcel shall be 10 acres or greater, situated within the Agricultural Overlay District and be restricted with an agricultural easement for a period of at least 10 years. For purposes of this PDD, a parcel may consist of a lot designated as a single tax number, or of two or more contiguous lots with separate tax map numbers.
(b) 
Agricultural easement.
[1] 
The Town of Southampton may accept an agricultural easement to ensure the continuation of agricultural production as defined in § 301 of the Agriculture and Markets Law, which may include the following:
[a] 
The landowner agrees not to develop the property for uses other than bona fide agricultural production as defined in § 301 of the New York State Agriculture and Markets Law, for a minimum of 10 years, except as provided in § 330-244I.
[b] 
The easement shall set forth specific terms and regulations which will govern subdivision of the property.
[c] 
Residential yield, as defined in Subsection F(2)(c) herein.
[2] 
The easement shall be in a form consistent with the Town’s development rights Easement and in a form acceptable to the Town Attorney’s office.
[3] 
The Town Board may accept the easement when it grants an Agricultural PDD, following a public hearing and the adoption of a resolution pursuant to Chapter 247 of the Code of the Town of Southampton and § 247 of General Municipal Law.
[4] 
This easement must be recorded in the Suffolk County Clerk’s office.
[5] 
Early termination. A landowner may petition the Town Board for termination of the agricultural easement and rezoning of the property during the initial ten-year period after the PDD is granted, but not until after the PDD has been in effect for five years. The Town Board may, in its discretion, grant such a petition after a public hearing upon a finding of undue hardship or extraordinary circumstances, including but not limited to death, illness or catastrophic economic loss. The property owner may also request development according to the restrictions set forth in the PDD. The Town Board may, at its own discretion, grant such a request.
[6] 
Opportunity to purchase prior to termination. At least 120 days prior to the termination of the agricultural easement, the Town shall have the opportunity to offer to purchase the development rights or fee title for all or part of the parcel. If the Town wishes to purchase development rights or fee title on all or part of the parcel, the Town shall make an offer 60 days prior to the termination date, taking into consideration the availability of funding and the fair market value of the property and in accordance with the zoning and cluster regulations defined in the easement. If an agreement on the price is not reached within 30 days of the offer or the time to negotiate a fair price is not extended by mutual consent by the parties, the landowner may develop the property in accordance with the Agricultural PDD and the zoning and cluster regulations defined in the easement. The landowner will then have three years to submit an application to the Planning Board that will be reviewed by the Planning Board according to the Agricultural PDD and the zoning and cluster regulations defined in the agricultural easement. This three-year limitation can be extended only by a resolution by the Town Board.
[Amended 6-8-2010 by L.L. No. 18-2010]
[7] 
Negotiation during easement period. During the first 10 years of the agricultural easement, the landowner may seek an offer from the Town for purchase of development rights or fee title, subject to the following procedures:
[a] 
Submission of a letter of interest and request for an appraisal to the Town Clerk.
[b] 
Appraisal by the Town based on the yield and open space set asides defined in the Agricultural PDD.
[Amended 6-8-2010 by L.L. No. 18-2010]
[c] 
If the Town makes an offer, said offer shall take into consideration the availability of funding and the fair market value. The Town must respond within 120 days of receiving the landowner's request.
[Amended 6-8-2010 by L.L. No. 18-2010]
[d] 
The landowner has the option to accept or refuse the offer without any violation of the conditions of the Agricultural PDD.

Westhampton Residential Planned Development District (WRPDD).
[Added 5-14-2002 by L.L. No. 11-2002; amended 10-25-2005 by L.L. No. 56-2005]
(1) 
Purpose and objectives.
(a) 
The Westhampton Residential Planned Development District (WRPDD) has been structured to accomplish the findings, purpose and long-term goals established by the Town Board as part of Article XXVI, Planned Development District, of the Town Code.
(b) 
The primary intent of the WRPDD is to provide an economically viable adaptive reuse of the property in such a way that will be consistent with the objectives of the 1970 Town Master Plan, the 1999 Comprehensive Plan Update, the June 1999 Westhampton Drag Strip Planned Development District Study, and the Central Pine Barrens Comprehensive Land Use Plan. The rezoning to a residential planned development district is intended as a means to allow additional development to facilitate the elimination of this unique, one-of-kind preexisting nonconforming use, consistent with the recommendations of the 1999 Comprehensive Plan Update. The proposed action would allow for the elimination of the existing noise-generating use, and replace that use with a land use that would be consistent with the surrounding ambient noise levels and will substantially eliminate offensive noise levels in the area, particularly with public nuisances associated with the former racetrack.
(c) 
The WRPDD is intended to encourage flexible residential development with provisions for parks, recreational, community uses, services and activities normally accessory to residential use, while maximizing the preservation of natural vegetation and resources. Clustering development, open space preservation, maximizing the most efficient utilization of transportation systems, utilities and public services are intended to be achieved by the WRPDD. The intent is to support creative, desirable and affordable private residential development by providing incentives and flexibility, which encourage the use of innovative planning and design techniques.
(d) 
The WRPDD also supports implementation of the Town's Comprehensive Plan, particularly the overall vision, goals, findings, policies and recommended actions for hamlet centers and specific land use, design and development strategies for Westhampton. Specific objectives contained in the Comprehensive Plan which are achieved by the WRPDD are as follows:
[1] 
Support the most efficient and purposeful use of vacant and disturbed land.
[2] 
Improve the overall quality of the surrounding residential neighborhoods.
[3] 
Preserve the unique community character and sense of place that is Westhampton.
[4] 
Eliminate costly infrastructure improvements and expansion costs.
[5] 
Provide incentives for the reclamation and reuse of disturbed parcels.
[6] 
Provide efficient and viable land use options that complement the surrounding pattern and types of development.
[7] 
Establish innovative land use and zoning standards.
[8] 
Support the implementation of the Comprehensive Plan, Community Preservation Project Plan and Central Pine Barrens Comprehensive Land Use Plan.
[9] 
Eliminate a preexisting nonconforming use and remove a public nuisance.
[10] 
Restore 14 acres of an environmentally sensitive area located within the Core Preservation Area as defined by the Central Pine Barrens Comprehensive Land Use Plan.
[11] 
Provide the opportunity for affordable housing for senior citizens, age 55 years and older.
[12] 
Provide a receiving site for the transfer of development rights or Pine Barrens credits.
[13] 
Provide a positive economic impact to the Town and to the surrounding hamlets and villages.
[14] 
Enhance property values to the residents of Westhampton and to the surrounding villages and hamlets.
[15] 
Provide park and recreational space.

(a) 
Community benefit units. Nine dwelling units will be sold exclusively to moderate-income senior households and 10 units will be reserved for middle-income senior households and dispersed as shown on the approved site plan dated October 2, 2003. Any owner of a unit reserved for a moderate-income household or unit reserved for a middle-income household is required to occupy the premises as his/her primary residence. In the event the owner of a unit reserved for a moderate-income household or unit reserved for a middle-income household fails to occupy said premises as his/her primary residence, or in the event that he/she rents the premises or any part thereof to others, or contracts to convey to an absentee landlord or conveys same to an absentee landlord, or contracts to convey to an ineligible buyer, or conveys all or any part of the owner's interest in the unit to an ineligible buyer, all in violation of the restrictions of this paragraph, or should the owner be found in violation of any further covenants and restrictions anywhere in this section or recorded as part of the deed which shall run with the land then, in that event, a forfeiture and reversion of title of the unit shall result. The Town, its agents, agencies or employees herein shall have the right to re-enter the noncompliant unit reserved for a moderate-income household or unit reserved for a middle-income household and terminate the ownership hereby conveyed and, thereafter, the Town, its successors and/or assigns, shall hold the land and premises in fee simple absolute as if this conveyance had never been made. A certificate to the effect that title to the premises herein conveyed has reverted to the Town shall be recorded in the office of the Clerk of the County of Suffolk and/or Suffolk County Registrar. All certificates of occupancy issued for dwelling units which have been designated as a unit reserved for a moderate-income household or unit reserved for a middle-income household shall be endorsed with a notation as such and that the initial purchase, resale and transfers of such units is conditioned upon continued compliance with the provisions of this chapter, Chapter 330, Zoning, all regulations issued thereunder, and other covenants and restrictions pertaining to such unit.
(b) 
Eligibility for moderate-income and/or middle-income housing.
[1] 
The Town or its agent shall determine the eligibility of all purchasers of moderate-income and/or middle-income housing units in accordance with § 330-5 of the Southampton Town Code and any guidelines promulgated by the Town, its agents, agencies or boards. All applicants must be age 55 or older at the time of occupancy.
[2] 
Asset guidelines.
[a] 
The Town or its agent shall from time to time promulgate guidelines to examine the applicant's full economic situation, and extenuating circumstances, to determine if the applicant qualifies without assistance. If it is determined that, because of his/her assets, an applicant would be able to purchase a home without the assistance, and if no relevant extenuating circumstances exist, the applicant will be deemed ineligible for the program to which he/she applied.
[3] 
A certificate of eligibility issued by the Town or its agent shall be required as a condition to purchase or transfer title to such community benefit units. No contract of sale shall be approved, nor shall any closing of title take place, or transfer of said real property occur without a certificate of eligibility first being issued by the Town or its agent.
(c) 
Initial sales price.
[1] 
The first offering of the community benefit units will be through a lottery coordinated with the Town, or the Town's agent. Notwithstanding the provisions of Chapter 216 of the Southampton Town Code at the effective date of this code amendment, initial sales prices shall be calculated as follows:
[a] 
Initial sales price of community benefit unit reserved for moderate-income household shall be two times the annual household income of the lottery recipient with a certificate of eligibility or $142,200 for a maximum family size of four in a two-bedroom unit, whichever is greater.
[b] 
Initial sales price of community benefit unit reserved for middle-income household shall be two times the annual household income of the lottery recipient with a certificate of eligibility or $195,470 for a maximum family size of four in a two-bedroom unit, whichever is greater.
[2] 
"Extras" and "upgrades" may be purchased by lottery recipients through a separate contract of sale so as not to increase the initial sales price for the community benefit unit. In no case, however, shall parking spaces be considered as an "extra" or "upgrade."
[3] 
In the event that a building permit has been issued for a community benefit unit, and the Town is unable to locate a qualified buyer for such unit, ready, willing and able to contract for the purchase of such dwelling within 180 days of written notice sent via certified mail by the seller to the Town, the seller shall have the right to sell such unit at market value in its normal course of business. If the Town notifies the seller in writing that it elects not to purchase the unit or is unable to locate a qualified buyer within the 180 days of receipt of seller's notice, the seller shall have the right upon written notification via certified mail from the Town to sell the unit at market value. Notice to either party shall be deemed given upon deposit of written notice addressed to the either party in a U.S. post office depository or at the time of deposit of the written notice addressed to the seller into the custody of an overnight delivery service. Upon closing of title, seller shall be entitled to retain from the purchase price the sum as calculated above (i.e., $142,200 or $195,470 plus "extras" and "upgrades") and the balance shall be payable to the Town Community Housing Opportunity Fund.
(d) 
Local preference.
[1] 
The Town or its agent shall determine from the list of applicants for the moderate- and/or middle-income households who have received certificates of eligibility as provided in Subsection H(9)(b) above ("eligible households"). To the extent permitted by federal and state funding programs, priority for households will be based upon the following:
[a] 
Eligible bona fide, year round residents of the Town of Southampton in accordance with standards established by the Town or its agent;
[b] 
All other income-eligible individuals 55 and older.
(e) 
Buyer benefit. At the time of initial purchase, the Town will obtain, at its own cost, an appraisal of each moderate- and/or middle-income unit to determine its fair market value. The difference between such appraised value and the purchase price shall be referred to as the "buyer benefit." The Town (grantor) will place a lien in the amount of the buyer benefit on the unit. All necessary duly executed documents shall be delivered at closing in accordance with guidelines developed by the Town, its agents, agencies and Boards and applicable banking regulations.
(f) 
Restrictions.
[1] 
Are the same as set forth in Subsection H(8)(j).
(g) 
Resale requirements. The resale of each moderate- and/or middle-income unit shall be subject to the following conditions and procedures:
[1] 
The seller of any such unit shall first give written notification via certified mail to the Town Clerk of its intention to sell. Such certified mail shall be addressed to the Town Clerk at 116 Hampton Road, Southampton, New York 11968 in order to be sufficient notice.
[2] 
Thereafter, upon receipt of such written notification, the Town shall have a right of first refusal to purchase the unit, the procedures for which shall be established by the Town or its agents. Simultaneously, the Town or its agents will seek to provide a purchaser meeting the eligibility requirements of this section. Should the Town choose not to exercise its right, the seller will convey the property to the purchaser selected by the Town at a price the Town or its agents shall determine. If the Town notifies the seller in writing that it elects not to purchase the unit or is unable to locate a qualified buyer within the 90 days of receipt of seller's notice set forth in Subsection H(9)(g)[1] above, the seller shall have the right upon written notification via certified mail from the Town to sell the unit at market value in accordance with the criteria set forth in Subsection H(9)(g)[4] below. The ninety-day period set forth above shall commence on the first business day after the Town Clerk shall receive said notice. Notice to the seller shall be deemed given by the Town upon deposit of written notice addressed to the seller in a U.S. post office depository or at the time of deposit of the written notice addressed to the seller into the custody of an overnight delivery service.
[3] 
In the event the Town or its agent notifies the seller as set forth in Subsection H(9)(g)[2] above in writing that it elects not to purchase the unit or if Town or its agent notifies the seller in writing that he/she is unable to locate a qualified buyer within the time period as outlined in Subsection H(9)(g)[2], the seller shall have the right to sell the unit at market value. Market value shall be determined as follows:
[a] 
Two appraisals shall be ordered by the Town, but one appraisal shall be paid by the seller. The average of the two appraisals shall be the purchase price. The seller of the unit shall receive the purchase price minus the following: the buyer benefit lien and the Town's portion of the appreciation as modified by the seller's permanent improvements as set forth in Subsection H(9)(g)[5] below.
[4] 
Any appreciation between a unit's market value at the time of purchase, which for purposes of this computation may be modified at the discretion of the Town or its agent, by the cost of any permanent improvements made by seller which are to be documented by the seller as adjusted by any changes in the consumer price index for "all items" for the New York Metropolitan area from the time such improvements were affixed to the unit, and its resale price shall be distributed as follows:

I. 
Hampton Bays South Mixed Planned Development District (HBSMUPD).
[Added 4-22-2003 by L.L. No. 37-2003]
(1) 
Purpose and objectives. The Hampton Bays South Mixed Planned Development District has been structured to accomplish the findings, purpose and long-term goals established by the Town Board as part of Article XXVI, Planned Development District, of the Zoning Law. The Hampton Bays South Mixed Planned Development District also supports implementation of the Town's Comprehensive Plan and the Hampton Bays Center Strategy, particularly the overall vision, goals, findings, policies, recommended actions for hamlet centers and specific land use, design and development strategies for Hampton Bays. Specific Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Law objectives achieved by the Hampton Bays South Mixed Planned Development District are as follows:
(a) 
Intensifies development in the traditional hamlet center, including redevelopment and in-fill development of property developed more than 50 years ago for commercial and industrial use.
(b) 
Allows a mixed-use development of a variety of scales, in connection with the preservation of the existing residential and historic scale of development with the provision of access and design improvements.
(c) 
Promotes mixed use redevelopment of the property on the south side of the railroad tracks, just east of Ponquogue Avenue, compatible with the commercial uses to the north and west, including the Hampton Bays Town Center MUPD and the residential uses to the south and east, including a mix of retail with apartments above and office uses on the northwesterly portion of the property, warehouse and contractor uses on the northeasterly portion of the property and five single-family residences on the southerly portion of the property.
(d) 
Maintains the underlying housing density of the Office District Zone and maintains sewage flow rates consistent with Article VI of the Suffolk County Sanitary Code.
(e) 
Provides landscaping treatment along the railroad to buffer its impact on adjoining residential properties to the south.
(f) 
Eliminates the preexisting, nonconforming industrial uses, associated with the former wholesale and retail lumber business and promotes the rehabilitation, reconstruction or elimination of the existing buildings that have deteriorated and become substandard to existing Building and Fire Codes.
(g) 
Reduces traffic congestion by limiting the uses on the property with significantly lower traffic generation potential than the existing commercial-industrial uses or the uses permitted as a right under the current OD zoning.

Whitecap Farm Agricultural Planned Development District.
[Added 7-22-2003 by L.L. No. 54-2003]
(1) 
Purpose and objectives. The Whitecap Farm Agricultural PDD has been structured to accomplish the finding and purpose established by the Town Board as part of Article XXVI, Planned Development District, of Chapter 330 of the Town Code. This Agricultural PDD also supports the implementation of the Town's Comprehensive Plan, 1999 Vision Goals for Agriculture and the subsequent Agricultural Opportunities Subdivision Generic Environmental Impact Statement. Specific objectives achieved by this Agricultural PDD are as follows:
(a) 
To encourage the protection of farming and the business of farming in the Town of Southampton.
(b) 
To emphasis the importance of agriculture as both a vital local economic base and as a land form that provides the Town of Southampton with much of its rural, rustic character and scenic beauty.
(c) 
Provide the landowner of this Agricultural PDD (herein know as "landowner") with another mechanism to access his equity in the land by providing him with development rights that can be immediately transferred or extinguished to facilitate preservation of farmland without having to subdivide his property.
(d) 
To enhance the Town's support of farming.
(e) 
To facilitate the farming of this parcel for a minimum of 10 years and reduce suburban sprawl.
(f) 
To allow the Town Board to have the opportunity to make a fair market offer of this parcel's development rights or fee title prior to any proposed non-farming residential development of this property.
(g) 
To maintain active farming that is adjacent to other active farmland, thereby contributing to a vital concentration of active farming within the Town of Southampton.
(h) 
To promote the preservation of 17.44 acres as a separate parcel that shall be available for agricultural production through the implementation of this Agricultural PDD, whereas no subdivision provisions or open space provisions of the current Town Code would ensure this preservation as a separate parcel.
(i) 
To encourage the preservation of at least 80% of the remaining farmland within the Town of Southampton by encouraging this landowner to preserve at least 80% of this parcel for agricultural production.
(2) 
District boundary. The Whitecap Agricultural PDD shall consist of a 34.322-acre portion of a parcel designated as SCTM No. 900-116-1-1917.5 situate in Mecox and defined as metes and bounds description as follows: Description of all that certain plot, piece or parcel of land situate, lying, and being in Mecox, Town of Southampton, County of Suffolk, and State of New York being part of Lot 3 as shown on the Subdivision Map of John L. Halsey (filed in the Suffolk County Clerk's office on October 24, 2000, as File No. 10514), said parcel being more particularly bounded and described as follows: Beginning at the northeasterly corner of the parcel about to be described, said point being situate North 70º 40' 17" West, 301.13 feet from the intersection of the westerly side of Horsemill Lane with the southerly side of Mecox Road and running thence from said point or place of beginning along Lot 2 shown on aforesaid Subdivision Map of John L. Halsey the following two courses and distances: (1) South 40º 16' 13" West, 498.98 feet to a point; South 49º 43' 47" East, 281.24 feet to a point on the westerly side of Horsemill Lane; thence along said westerly side of Horsemill Lane the following two courses and distances: (1) South 40º 16' 13" West, 833.18 feet to a point; South 37º 30' 03" West, 637.95 feet to a point and lands now or formerly of John L. Halsey & Evelyn S. Halsey; thence North 51º 02' 57" West along last mentioned lands, 1,042.93 feet to a point and lands now or formerly of County of Suffolk; thence along last mentioned lands the following two courses and distances: North 31º 21' 00" East, 384.02 feet to a point; North 44º 20' 46" East, 41.19 feet to a point and the Agricultural Reserve Area shown on the Subdivision Map of Wheaton Estates on Mecox Bay (filed in the Suffolk County Clerk's office on December 16, 1981 as File No. 7038); thence through lands now or formerly of John L. Halsey the following three courses and distances: (1) South 63º 33' 54" East, 67.93 feet; (2) South 50º 56' 40" East, 259.28 feet; North 33º 10' 53" East, 1,069.69 feet to a point and lands now or formerly of Michael A. Weber & Nancy H. Weber; thence along Lot 1 shown on aforementioned Subdivision Map of John L. Halsey the following two courses and distances: South 47º 12' 27" East, 211.69 feet to a point; North 40º 16' 13" East, 491.36 feet to a point on the southerly side of Mecox Road; thence along said southerly side of Mecox Road the following two courses and distances: (1) South 46º 08' 07" East, 312.13 feet to a point; South 70º 40' 17" East, 76.07 feet to a point; said point being at the point or place of beginning and comprising an area of 34.322 acres be the same more or less (excluding 9.89 acres of an agricultural reserve easement area shown on the aforementioned Subdivision Map of Wheaton Estates on Mecox Bay).
(3) 
Permitted uses. The use and development of the agricultural easement area will be conducted according to the time periods defined within this easement, and this area shall be restricted to some or all of the following:
(a) 
Consistent with bona fide agricultural production as defined in § 301 of the New York Agriculture and Markets Law, and as § 301 may be amended.
(b) 
Open and fallow (provided, however, that the agricultural easement area shall be mowed on an annual basis to prevent successional field growth.)
(c) 
Conservation opportunities subdivision that reduces density by a minimum of 50% and preserves at least 80% of the parcel and is developed according to Town Code § 292-6.1, Conservation opportunities subdivision review procedures.
(d) 
The landowner may replace, improve, renovate and repair existing agricultural building(s) and any existing residential residence that existed at the time of the creation of the Agricultural PDD zoning classification. After this zone change, the landowner shall have the ability to construct new agricultural buildings including housing for agricultural labor that is consistent with New York State Agriculture and Markets Law § 301.
(4) 
Development rights certificate. The Town shall provide the landowner with a Development rights certificate the next business day after the Town has filed this easement with the Suffolk County Clerk.
(a) 
The number of credits that have been calculated pursuant to Chapter 244 of the Town Code of the Town of Southampton for this real property is based on the following zoning calculations: The property is within the R-80 District. According to Southampton Town Code § 244-2B, the development yield factor for an R-80 Zone is 0.55. This Agricultural PDD consists of 34.322 acres. By multiplying 0.55 by 34.322, acres this results in 18.88 development credits. Section 244-2B requires that fractional allocation of a development credit shall be rounded to the nearest one-hundredth ( 1/100 or 0.01) of a credit. Therefore, the development rights certificate shall have 18.88 development credits for this Agricultural PDD.
(b) 
The Agricultural PDD requires a 50% open space set aside should a clustered subdivision be approved after the termination of the Agricultural PDD easement. The open space set aside shall be encumbered with an agricultural easement, and this area shall be a separate and distinct parcel from those that are to be residentially developed (excluding housing for agricultural labor related to the farming of the open space parcel.) This open space set aside does not have to be defined until all of the development rights are transferred or extinguished. The landowner may increase this open space set aside.
(c) 
The Town shall file this Agricultural PDD easement within five business days of the execution of this easement and provide proof of filing with the landowner. These development rights may be immediately sold and transferred, or extinguished. These development rights may not be used for development on site unless they are part of a conservation opportunities subdivision, or until a minimum of ten years have passed since the effective date of the establishment of this Agricultural PDD zone and this easement has been terminated.
(5) 
Sale of development rights. The Town intends to facilitate the preservation of up to 80% of the Agricultural PDD area through voluntary measures with the landowner. One mechanism to achieve this 80% goal is to purchase development rights (also known as development credits when sold or transferred). It is, therefore, the intent of the Town to purchase additional development credits on 30% of the Agricultural PDD area to add to the required 50% open space set aside as defined herein. In order to encourage the landowner to sell individual development rights (credits) to the Town over time, the acreage to be preserved for each development credit sold shall be calculated as follows
(a) 
There are 18.88 development rights available to construct 18 residential units within the Agricultural PDD area. The fractional credit does not equal one residential unit.
(b) 
Fifty percent of the Agricultural PDD area to be preserved in a clustered subdivision equals 17.16 acres (one half of 34.32 acres).
(c) 
Twenty percent of the Agricultural PDD area to be set aside for development equals 6.86 acres.
(d) 
Thirty percent of the Agricultural PDD area from which development rights may be sold or transferred equals 10.3 acres.
(e) 
The acreage preserved with the sale or transfer of a development right shall be calculated as follows: The last credit to be sold or transferred shall remain on up to 20% of the Agricultural PDD area. The remaining 17.88 credits shall be divided into 30% of the parcel. Therefore, each credit when sold or transferred shall preserve 0.58 acres. For example, if the landowner sells or transfers 15.88 development credits, there will be 9.21 acres preserved plus 17.16 acres for a total of 26.37 acres protected. The remaining two credits multiplied by 0.58 acres plus 6.86 acres equals 8.02 acres for the placement of three residential units upon the termination of the Agricultural PDD easement
(6) 
Negotiation procedures for acquisition during the easement period. During the term of the Agricultural PDD easement, the landowner may seek an offer from the Town for purchase of one or more of the development rights or fee title, subject to the following procedures
(a) 
Submission of a letter of interest and request for an appraisal to the Town Clerk.
(b) 
The appraisal conducted by a certified appraiser for the Town shall be based on the yield and open space set asides defined in the Agricultural PDD or the highest and best use of the property.
(c) 
The Town shall make an offer within 120 days of the landowner's request.
(d) 
The landowner has the option to accept or refuse the offer without any violation of the conditions of the Agricultural PDD easement.
(7) 
Agricultural PDD term. The term of the Agricultural PDD shall be for a minimum of 10 years, and it shall remain in effect so long as the landowner utilizes the property for a use consistent with the terms of this easement. The landowner may submit a subdivision application and develop the property as a conservation opportunities subdivision without waiting a minimum of ten years after the Agricultural PDD has been approved. During the application process, the Agricultural PDD shall remain in effect.
(8) 
Early termination. The landowner of this Agricultural PDD (hereinafter "landowner") may petition the Town Board for termination of this Agricultural PDD easement and rezoning of the property during the initial ten-year period after the PDD is granted, but not until after the PDD has been in effect for five years. The Town Board may, in its discretion, grant such a petition after a public hearing upon a finding of undue hardship or catastrophic economic loss. This landowner may also request development, consistent with the restrictions set forth in the PDD. The Town Board may, at its own discretion, grant such a request.
(9) 
Procedures for termination of this agricultural PDD easement. At the conclusion of the ten-year period defined in the Agricultural PDD, the landowner may at any time submit a written notice to the office of the Town Clerk of his intentions to terminate this Agricultural PDD easement. Without such notification, the Agricultural PDD easement shall continue to be in force in accordance with the terms of the Agricultural PDD. Upon such notification, the Town shall have 150 days to exercise an option to purchase the development rights or fee title for all or part of the parcel prior to the termination of the Agricultural PDD easement. The Town shall make an offer on the basis of the fair market value of the property in accordance with the zoning and cluster regulations defined in this easement less any development rights sold or transferred during the term of the easement. If agreement on the sales price is not reached between the Town and the landowner within 30 days of the offer or such additional time as may be agreed upon by mutual consent of the parties, the landowner may develop the property in accordance with the Agricultural PDD and the zoning and cluster regulations defined in the Agricultural PDD easement. The landowner shall have three years to submit an application to the Planning Board in accordance with the Agricultural PDD and the zoning and cluster regulations defined in the Agricultural PDD easement. This three-year limitation can be extended by a resolution of the Town Board. If the landowner fails to request an extension to file a subdivision application, the Agricultural PDD zoning shall expire and the related easement shall terminate.

Sebonack Mixed-Use Planned Development District (SMUPDD).
[Added 2-10-2004 by L.L. No. 5-2004[1]]
(1) 
Purpose and objectives. The Sebonack Mixed-Use Planned Development District (SMUPDD) has been structured to accomplish the findings, purpose and long-term goals established by the Town Board as part of Article XXVI, Planned Development District, of the Town of Southampton Zoning Law. The SMUPDD also supports implementation of the Town's Comprehensive Plan and the Peconic Estuary Plan, particularly the overall vision, goals, findings, policies, recommended actions for natural resource protection, economic redevelopment, recreation and open space planning, and specific land use, design and development strategies for new golf courses. The SMUPDD provides substantial community benefits and amenities. Specific Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Law objectives achieved by the SMUPDD are as follows:
(a) 
The SMUPDD will preserve and conserve open space, natural resources, diverse ecological communities, species diversity, and groundwater quality and quantity. The organic golf course use is a low-density use that is aesthetically pleasing and environmentally sound. The plan preserves open space, including approximately 289 acres in undeveloped lands and wildlife habitat. Of this 289 acres, 95 acres will be preserved in its natural state, while up to an additional 94 acres, including the previously disturbed or improved areas in the "out of play" areas, will be restored and invasive species eliminated and replanted with native vegetation. The balance of the 289 acres is approximately 100 acres devoted to the active recreation open space area of the golf course. New impervious surfaces and structures incidental to the primary golf course will cover approximately nine acres or 3% of the property. All wetlands, bluffs and other environmentally significant features will be preserved and all development will meet or exceed the required regulatory setbacks. Specifically, all state and Town wetland standards, including the Town's one-hundred-foot buffer and one-hundred-twenty-five-foot structural setback, have been met or exceeded. In fact, more than 90% of the property within 300 feet of any wetlands is free of structures. There is the positive effect on groundwater quality through the elimination of both of the existing nonconforming uses and the potential for 65 individual septic systems incidental to a large subdivision.
(b) 
The SMUPDD will establish and maintain open space and open space corridors for active and passive uses. The donation to the Town of the one-acre of land adjoining Cold Spring Road on the Main Parcel and the three-acre Bay Parcel will allow the Town to enhance the existing means of public access to Peconic Bay for active and passive uses as it sees fit for the benefit of the Town's residents. The donation of the fifty-four-acre Cold Spring Pond Conservation parcel to the Town Trustees will maintain an environmentally and visually sensitive open space corridor along Cold Spring Pond, guarantee its protection in perpetuity and permit public access subject to the state and Town's regulatory oversight. The properties adjoining the Main Parcel are the private golf courses of the National Golf Links of America, the Shinnecock Hills Golf Club and the Southampton Golf Club. Thus, this proposal completes the Town's overall open-space corridor for the area and is compatible with the neighboring uses. The proposed project will, in fact, greatly alleviate the burden on the land by removing the current legal nonconforming uses and restoring the site with an organic golf course and open space utilizing indigenous trees and plants.
(c) 
The SMUPDD will allow the creation of a golf course that meets or exceeds the recently published Suffolk County Protocol for the establishment, maintenance and operation of organic golf courses. This protocol is one of the first governmental standards in the country for the construction and operation of an organic golf course. To meet these standards, the applicant and its engineering experts have designed a unique closed system for the golf greens in order to prevent fertilizers from entering into the groundwater or surface water runoff. As described in the FEIS, the anticipated amount of nitrogen loading to the groundwater and surrounding water bodies will be significantly lower than the thresholds set forth in the Peconic Estuary Plan and all other water quality standards adopted by the state, county and Town. In addition, the course will be managed using an organic-based Integrated Turf Health Management program ("ITHM"). The applicant's organic management efforts, including the ITHM, are described in detail in the FEIS and will be incorporated as a condition of the approval of the SMUPDD. The applicant also intends to restore the "out of play" areas using native species of trees, shrubs, plants and other vegetation which are not dependent upon fertilizers to flourish. The SMUPDD will require a detailed landscape and revegetation plan to be submitted with the site plan.
(d) 
The SMUPDD further requires that the applicant to enroll the project in the Audubon International Signature Program. This is an environmental education and assistance program created by Audubon International to help property owners follow sustainable resource management principles integrating wildlife conservation, habitat restoration and enhancement, and water conservation and quality protection. In accordance with the Audubon program, the applicant will prepare and submit a Natural Resources Management Plan for the property, which Audubon will review and approve as a part of the certification process. When certified, the proposed golf course will be one of the few courses in the country to achieve this prestigious designation. The SMUPDD will allow the creation of a golf course that meets or exceeds the Audubon International Signature Program standards. In particular, the proposed golf course with five acres devoted to the lined greens will not exceed Audubon's one-hundred-acre limitation on the amount of managed turf.
(e) 
The SMUPDD can be a means for research and education in organic golf course technology, and for demonstrating the viability of such technology. It is likely that this project will be the first in the region to use the organic-based ITHM methodologies. As described in the FEIS, a grant will be funded by the applicant so that the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County or other independent party can monitor and document the progress and success of the organic technology and protocols. This research can then be published and applied to new and, hopefully, existing turf-based projects, including athletic fields as well as golf courses. The grant component also provides opportunities for research and demonstration projects for the enhancement and restoration of the property's wetlands. The applicant intends that the proposed golf course will be an active working laboratory for the testing of, and demonstration of the viability of, organic management technologies.
(f) 
The SMUPDD provides an economically viable adaptive reuse of the property in such a way that is consistent with the visions, objectives and goals of the Town's Comprehensive Plan to encourage recreational amenities that capitalize on the Town's resort, second-home and tourist-based economy.
(g) 
The SMUPDD encourages the preservation of a quality of place in community, which fosters the sharing of amenities and the utilization of local services. The properties adjoining the Main Parcel are the private golf courses of the National Golf Links of America, the Shinnecock Hills Golf Club and the Southampton Golf Club. This proposal completes the Town's overall open-space corridor for the area and is compatible with the neighboring uses. The proposed project will, in fact, greatly alleviate the burden on the land by removing the current legal nonconforming uses and restoring the site with an organic golf course and open space utilizing indigenous trees and plants. Elimination of the existing legal, nonconforming uses, including over 175,000 square feet of nonconforming buildings and structures provides the opportunity through site design to increase setback from environmentally sensitive features, including the bluffs and wetland areas on the subject property. The donation of the Cold Spring Pond Conservation Parcel to the Town Trustees, and the donation of the three-acre Bay Parcel and the approximately 1.25-acre portion of the Main Parcel adjacent to the east side of the northerly terminus of Cold Spring Road to the Town further enhances parks and recreation and open space conservation and the opportunity for public access and enjoyment of the subject property. Also, the planned dedication of a paved road to the Cold Spring Point Homeowners' Association will allow the association to formalize the maintenance of its road network and the security of the entrance to the community.
(h) 
The SMUPDD eliminates excessive and inefficient infrastructure by first removing the approximately 175,000 square feet of existing nonconforming structures and associated infrastructure on the site, including the building that was converted to and used as a convention center (a.k.a Bayberry manor house). Many of the existing structures are not well maintained and have suffered significant deterioration, and do not meet current building and fire code standards. The applicant has noted that demolition of the existing structures does not significantly impact any officially designated cultural or historic resources; however, the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation ("OPRHP") affirmed in an October 1, 2003, letter made part of the record on the DEIS and FEIS that it is "equivocal" with regard to whether or not the Bayberry manor house is eligible for listing on the National and State Registers, which term means "unclear, ambivalent" and therefore OPRHP has taken the position that it "cannot confirm or deny" the historic significance of the manor house and will support a local determination by the Town of Southampton as part of the balancing required under the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA). As documented in the FEIS and by the New York State OPRHP, the deterioration and lack of maintenance, as well as the many alterations made to the convention center building, have diminished and compromised the qualities and characteristics that might have made the building architecturally significant. In addition, the once noteworthy landscape gardens have been significantly compromised. Several structures and improvements also adversely impact sensitive environmental features, including bluffs. The applicant has made a case, and the Town Board finds, that removal of all of these structures and improvements and restoration of the lands in an environmentally sensitive manner and new construction to conform to the design for the proposed eighteen-hole championship golf course will be cost-prohibitive. The plan made part of the record for this zone change incorporates a site plan design which utilizes impact avoidance techniques for potential archeologically sensitive areas and other potential cultural resources and substantial restoration and protection of environmentally sensitive areas, including preservation of lands for parks, recreation and open space conservation, including over 289 acres in undeveloped lands and wildlife habitat; thereby affording substantial community benefits. As set forth in the FEIS, the findings of OPRHP, as well as an economic analysis of the adaptive reuse of the buildings as referenced in the findings statement of the Town Board as lead agency under SEQRA, the impact of the proposed demolition has been considered and it has been determined that preservation of the convention center building is not practical. However, in consideration of local interests related to the demolition of the building, and the associated loss of marginal historic resources as termed by OPRHP, the SMUPDD shall incorporate reasonable measures, including the preparation of a photographic archive, in consultation with a historic preservation specialist and at the applicant's expense, of the existing buildings and structures in excess of 75 years of age on the property, consistent with the professional standards indicated in the New York State Cultural Resource Management Handbook; donation and reuse of salvageable architectural elements from the interior of the convention center building (a.k.a Bayberry manor house) to the Town and/or other interested parties, and the donation of funds to the Town of Southampton for use in preserving cultural, historic and architectural resources in the Town. The SMUPDD also avoids the development of a 65-home subdivision and associated infrastructure, including roads, drainage systems, utility lines and other residential service facilities that would create numerous impervious surfaces that would contribute to runoff and erosion and other environmental impacts. Moreover, the 65 individual septic systems would add tremendously to nitrogen loading, with the potential negative impacts on groundwater and adjacent surface waters.
(i) 
The SMUPDD will further local interests related to the Town's cultural and historic resources with the measures offered by the applicant, including the preparation of a photographic archive of the existing buildings and structures on the property, donation of salvageable architectural elements from the interior of the convention center building to the Town and other interested parties, and donation of funds to the Town of Southampton for use in preserving cultural, historic and architectural resources in the Town.
(j) 
The SMUPDD encourages the most efficient and purposeful use of all remaining vacant land. As analyzed and demonstrated in the FEIS prepared for the project, among the numerous alternate uses, the proposed organic golf course minimizes potential impacts on the environment and is far superior to the development of the property for 65 individual home sites.
(k) 
The SMUPDD provides a positive fiscal and economic impact on the Town, including a positive impact on the tax base of the Tuckahoe School District, and avoidance of potential increase in school enrollment associated with residential home construction. The golf course use negates any potential impact on enrollment in the Tuckahoe School District, which has already seen its student body grow significantly in recent years. The alternative of a sixty-five-house subdivision, consistent with current zoning, has the potential to increase enrollment in the district by more than 30 students. That, together with other factors that are increasing enrollment, might force the district to expand its facilities or relocate elsewhere, with negative impacts on local property taxes and existing open space. The SMUPDD will provide enhanced educational opportunities related to Southampton College's long-term lease to establish an environmental and marine research facility on the one-acre portion of the Cold Spring Pond Conservation Parcel, as well as coordination with high school golf teams from school districts from the Town of Southampton for practice, matches, and to receive professional golf instruction.
(l) 
The SMUPDD does not require any public funding. The preservation of 289 acres of open space and the construction of one of the first golf courses in the United States to utilize the organic protocol will come at no cost to the taxpayers of the Town of Southampton and will be funded entirely by the applicant.
(m) 
The SMUPDD will further local interests related to expansion of public recreation resources of the Town with the applicant's donation of funds to the Town's special Park and Recreation Site Acquisition and Improvement Trust Fund, including public access improvements to the approximately 1.25-acre parcel to be donated to the Town, known as the "Bay Beach Park Parcel," and establishment of public access improvements on the Cold Spring Pond Conservation Parcel to be dedicated to the Town Trustees.
(n) 
The SMUPDD promotes the game of golf and permits limited public access to the private golf course. The applicant shall submit a Limited Public Access Plan, which shall incorporate making the facility available to local charitable organizations for five golf outings each year. The applicant has agreed to make the facility available to local charitable organizations for five golf outings each year. Additionally, the applicant has agreed to make the facility available to high school golf teams from school districts from the Town of Southampton for practice, matches, and to receive professional golf instruction.
(o) 
The SMUPDD will promote the use of transfer of development rights for affordable housing or other beneficial use in the Tuckahoe School District, whereby the applicant shall convey as many of the residential development rights available (leaving enough rights to permit the construction of the marine field station) from the fifty-four-acre Cold Spring Pond Conservation Parcel to the Town of Southampton.
(p) 
The SMUPDD should enhance property values of the residents of the hamlets of Tuckahoe and Shinnecock Hills as well as the surrounding villages and hamlets.
(2) 
District boundary. The SMUPDD shall consist of four parcels owned by the applicant, Sebonac Neck Property, LLC, located on the northwesterly side of Sebonac Road, easterly side of Cold Spring Pond, easterly and westerly sides of Cold Spring Pond Road, southeasterly side of Peconic Bay, in the hamlets of Tuckahoe and Shinnecock Hills, shown and designated as SCTM Nos. 0900-127-1-1, 2, 3 and 4; totaling approximately 298 acres, as further shown and described in the application of Sebonac Neck Property, LLC, and accompanying Survey Map, prepared by Squires Holden Weisenbacher & Smith, Land Surveyors, dated April 16, 2002.

(4) 
Dimensional regulations. Within the SMUPDD, the bulk, area, height and dimensional regulations established for the underlying Residence R-120 Zone shall apply, except that the dimensional requirements for the buildings, structures and accessory uses for the golf course and the marine field station shall be consistent with the dimensions shown on the Master Site Plan for the Bayberry Project prepared by Greenman-Pedersen, Inc., last dated January 30, 2004. The proposed clubhouse is authorized to have a building height of 47 feet measured from the finished grade at the main entry to the highest point of the roof and a cupola height of 62 feet measured from the finished grade at the main entry to the top of the cupola. The proposed owner's residence may have a building height of 36 feet measured from finished grade to the highest point of the roof. Cupolas or other similar architectural features shall not be subject to the height restrictions of the Zoning Code of the Town of Southampton. Notwithstanding any provision in this chapter to the contrary, the Planning Board may, through the site plan review process, further modify the standards required herein, provided that no significant adverse environmental impact to the surrounding property will occur and the goals of this section are achieved. Nothing in this chapter shall preclude the future alteration, reconstruction, enlargement or expansion of the buildings or structures erected on the premises, provided that no such changes, either singly or in the aggregate, increase the footprint by greater than 25%, the aforementioned height limitations are adhered to, there is no change in the approved use, site plan approval is obtained, and all other zoning regulations not expressly modified herein are complied with.

North Sea Mixed-Use Planned Development District (NSMUPDD).
[Added 2-24-2004 by L.L. No. 6-2004[2]; 5-23-2006 by L.L. No. 26-2006]
(1) 
Purpose and objectives. The North Sea Mixed-Use Planned Development District (NSMUPDD) is structured to accomplish the findings, purpose and long-term goals established by the Town Board as part of Article XXVI, Planned Development District, of the Town Code. The NSMUPDD supports implementation of the 1999 Town of Southampton Comprehensive Plan Update. The primary intent of the NSMUPDD is to provide an economically viable and beneficial re-use of the subject property, and to provide a means to eliminate a nonconforming use, and reestablish a beneficial compatible use consistent with the goals of the 1970 Town Master Plan and the 1999 Comprehensive Plan Update. In recognition of the rising cost of housing and population growth, particularly in school-age children and senior citizens, the proposed action to rezone the subject parcel to a Mixed-Use Planned Development District is intended as a means to provide land at no cost to the school district taxpayers for construction of a new institutional facility for the Southampton School District allowing for an increase in the capacity of local schools and efficiency in use of public services and resource. In addition, the NSMUPDD provides the additional community benefit as a mixed-income multi-unit housing development demonstrating a more creative, desirable and aesthetic design that shall facilitate the development of desirable and affordable housing opportunities in a manner that is beneficial, compatible and harmonious with the surrounding land uses. The proposed action would facilitate the elimination of a public nuisance use and thereby integrate the surrounding public open space and public resources with quality housing types not currently available in the community. The proposed housing will provide greater housing diversity and an affordable housing component, consistent with Town planning efforts. Establishment of the NSMUPDD will also support implementation of the overall goals and recommended actions identified in the Town's Comprehensive Plan by attaining the following objectives:
(a) 
Promote an efficient and purposeful use of vacant and previously disturbed land.
(b) 
Create a planned residential community providing housing that meets the social and economic needs of the residents of the hamlet of North Sea.
(c) 
Provide efficient and viable land use to support the identified need to expand the Southampton Union Free School District.
(d) 
Eliminate a preexisting nonconforming use and associated public nuisances.
(e) 
Establish innovative land use and zoning standards.
(f) 
Development of communities wherein, collectively, the mix of uses, aesthetically, physically, socially and economically, encourages the creation and/or preservation of a sense of place, pride and values.
(g) 
Reduce the cost of governmental and other public services.
(h) 
Provide an appropriate transition zone between adjacent Town open space and residential uses.
(i) 
Enhance property values in the Hamlet of North Sea and the surrounding area.
(j) 
Encourage comprehensive and innovative planning and design of the highest quality, utilizing and incorporating a variety of land uses.
(k) 
Prevent or minimize land use incompatibilities and conflicts among different land uses.

(3) 
Permitted uses. The use and development of the agricultural easement area will be conducted according to the time periods defined within this easement, and this area shall be restricted to some or all of the following:
(a) 
Consistent with bona fide agricultural production as defined in § 301 of the New York Agriculture and Markets Law, and as § 301 may be amended.
(b) 
Open and fallow (provided, however, that the agricultural easement area shall be mowed on an annual basis to prevent successional field growth).
(c) 
Conservation opportunities subdivision that reduces density by a minimum of 50% and preserves at least 80% of the parcel and is developed according to Town Code § 292-6.1, Conservation opportunities subdivision review procedures.
(d) 
The landowner may replace, improve, renovate and repair existing agricultural building(s) and any existing residential residence that existed at the time of the creation of the Agricultural PDD zoning classification.

(4) 
Development rights certificate. The Town shall provide the landowner with a development rights certificate the next business day after the Town has filed this easement with the Suffolk County Clerk.
(a) 
The number of credits that have been calculated pursuant to Chapter 244 of the Town Code of the Town of Southampton for this real property is based on the following zoning calculations. The property is within the CR-120 District. According to Southampton Town Code § 244-2B the development yield factor for a CR-120 Zone is 0.36. This Agricultural PDD consists of 35.453 acres. By multiplying 0.36 by 35.453 acres this results in 12.76 development credits. Section 244-2B requires that fractional allocation of a development credit shall be rounded to the nearest 1/100 or 0.01 of a credit. Therefore, the development rights certificate shall have 12.76 development credits for this Agricultural PDD.
(b) 
The Agricultural PDD requires a sixty-five-percent open space set-aside should a clustered subdivision be approved after the termination of the Agricultural PDD easement. The open space set-aside shall be encumbered with an agricultural easement, and this area shall be a separate and distinct parcel from those that are to be residentially developed (excluding housing for agricultural labor related to the farming of the open space parcel.) This open space set-aside does not have to be defined until all of the development rights are transferred or extinguished. The landowner may increase this open space set-aside.
(c) 
The Town shall file this Agricultural PDD easement within five business days of the execution of this easement and provide proof of filing with the landowner. These development rights may be immediately sold and transferred, or extinguished. These development rights may not be used for development on site unless they are part of a conservation opportunities subdivision, or until a minimum of 10 years has passed since the effective date of the establishment of this Agricultural PDD zone and this easement has been terminated.
(5) 
Sale of development rights. The Town intends to facilitate the preservation of up to 80% of the Agricultural PDD area through voluntary measures with the landowner. One mechanism to achieve this 80% goal is to purchase development rights (also known as development credits when sold or transferred). It is, therefore, the intent of the Town to purchase additional development credits on 15% of the Agricultural PDD area to add to the required 65% open space set-aside as defined herein. In order to encourage the landowner to sell individual development rights (credits) to the Town over time, the acreage to be preserved for each development credit sold shall be calculated as follows:
(a) 
There are 12.76 development rights available to construct 12 residential units within the Agricultural PDD area. The fractional credit does not equal one residential unit.
(b) 
Sixty-five percent of the Agricultural PDD area to be preserved in a clustered subdivision equals 23.04 acres.
(c) 
Thirty-five percent of the Agricultural PDD area to be set aside for development equals 12.41 acres.
(d) 
Thirty-five percent of the Agricultural PDD area from which development rights may be sold or transferred equals 12.41 acres.
(e) 
The acreage preserved with the sale or transfer of a development right shall be calculated as follows: 12.41 acres divided by 12.76 equals 0.973 acres per credit. Therefore, every time a credit is sold or transferred, an additional 0.973 acre shall be preserved and added to the 65%, or 23.04 acres, that shall be preserved under the cluster requirement.
(f) 
For example, if the landowner sells or transfers 4.76 credits, there will be 4.63 acres preserved plus 23.04 acres for a total of 27.67 acres protected. The remaining 8 credits shall allow the placement of 8 houses on 7.78 acres upon the termination of this Agricultural PDD easement.
(6) 
Negotiation procedures for acquisition during the easement period. During the term of the Agricultural PDD Easement, the landowner may seek an offer from the Town for purchase of one or more of the development rights or fee title, subject to the following procedures:
(a) 
Submission of a letter of interest and request for an appraisal to the Town Clerk.
(b) 
The appraisal conducted by a certified appraiser for the Town shall be based on the yield and open space se-asides defined in the Agricultural PDD or the highest and best use of the property.
(c) 
The Town shall make an offer within 120 days of the landowner's request.
(d) 
The landowner has the option to accept or refuse the offer without any violation of the conditions of the Agricultural PDD easement.
(7) 
Agricultural PDD term. The term of the Agricultural PDD shall be for a minimum of 10 years, and it shall remain in effect so long as the landowner utilizes the property for a use consistent with the terms of this easement. The landowner may submit a subdivision application and develop the property as a conservation opportunities subdivision without waiting a minimum of ten years after the Agricultural PDD has been approved. During the application process, the Agricultural PDD shall remain in effect.
(8) 
Early termination. The landowner of this Agricultural PDD may petition the Town Board for termination of this Agricultural PDD easement and rezoning of the property during the initial ten-year period after the PDD is granted, but not until after the PDD has been in effect for five years. The Town Board may, in its discretion, grant such a petition after a public hearing upon a finding of undue hardship or catastrophic economic loss. This landowner may also request development consistent with the restrictions set forth in the PDD. The Town Board may, at its own discretion, grant such a request.
(9) 
Procedures for termination of this Agricultural PDD easement. At the conclusion of the ten-year period defined in the Agricultural PDD, the landowner may at any time submit a written notice to the office of the Town Clerk of his intentions to terminate this Agricultural PDD easement. Without such notification, the Agricultural PDD easement shall continue to be in force in accordance with the terms of the Agricultural PDD. Upon such notification, the Town shall have 150 days to exercise an option to purchase the development rights or fee title for all or part of the parcel prior to the termination of the Agricultural PDD easement. The Town shall make an offer on the basis of the fair market value of the property in accordance with the zoning and cluster regulations defined in this easement less any development rights sold or transferred during the term of the easement. If agreement on the sales price is not reached between the Town and the landowner within 30 days of the offer or such additional time as may be agreed upon by mutual consent of the parties, the landowner may develop the property in accordance with the Agricultural PDD and the zoning and cluster regulations defined in the Agricultural PDD easement. The landowner shall have three years to submit an application to the Planning Board in accordance with the Agricultural PDD and the zoning and cluster regulations defined in the Agricultural PDD easement. This three-year limitation can be extended by a resolution of the Town Board. If the landowner fails to request an extension to file a subdivision application, the Agricultural PDD zoning shall expire and the related easement shall terminate.

(1) 
Purpose and objectives. The Two Potato Agricultural PDD has been structured to accomplish the finding and purpose established by the Town Board as part of Article XXVI, Planned Development District, of Chapter 330 of the Town Code. This Agricultural PDD also supports the implementation of the Town's Comprehensive Plan, 1999 Vision Goals for Agriculture and the subsequent Agricultural Opportunities Subdivision Generic Environmental Impact Statement. Specific objectives achieved by this Agricultural PDD are as follows:
(a) 
To encourage the protection of farming and the business of farming in the Town of Southampton.
(b) 
To emphasize the importance of agriculture as both a vital local economic base and as a land form that provides the Town of Southampton with much of its rural, rustic character and scenic beauty.
(c) 
To provide the landowner of this Agricultural PDD (herein known as "landowner") with another mechanism to access his equity in the land by providing him with development rights that can be immediately transferred or extinguished to facilitate preservation of farmland without having to subdivide his property.
(d) 
To enhance the Town's support of farming.
(e) 
To facilitate the farming of this parcel for a minimum of 10 years and reduce suburban sprawl.

(g) 
To maintain active farm that is adjacent to other active farmland, thereby contributing to a vital concentration of active farming within the Town of Southampton.
(h) 
To guarantee the preservation of 10.44 acres as a separate parcel that shall be available for agricultural protection through the implementation of this Agricultural PDD, whereas no subdivision provisions or open space provisions of the current Town Code would ensure this preservation.
(i) 
To encourage the preservation of at least 80% of the remaining farmland within the Town of Southampton by encouraging this landowner to preserve at least 80% of this parcel for agricultural production.
(2)

(3) 
Permitted uses. The use and development of the agricultural easement area will be conducted according to the time periods defined within this easement, and this area shall be restricted to some or all of the following:
(a) 
Consistent with bona fide agricultural production as defined in § 301 of the New York Agriculture and Markets Law, and as § 301 may be amended.
(b) 
Open and fallow (provided, however, that the agricultural easement area shall be mowed on an annual basis to prevent successional field growth.)
(c) 
Conservation opportunities subdivision that reduces density by a minimum of 50% and preserves at least 80% of the parcel and is developed according to Town Code § 292-6.1, Conservation opportunities subdivision review procedures.
(d) 
The landowner may replace, improve, renovate and repair existing agricultural building(s) and any existing residential residence that existed at the time of the creation of the Agricultural PDD zoning classification. After this zone change, the landowner shall have the ability to construct new agricultural buildings, including housing for agricultural labor that is consistent with New York State Agriculture and Markets Law § 301.
(4) 
Development rights certificate. The Town shall provide the landowner with a development rights certificate the next business day after the Town has filed this easement with the Suffolk County Clerk.
(a) 
The number of credits that have been calculated pursuant to Chapter 244 of the Town Code of the Town of Southampton for this real property is based on the following zoning calculations. The property is within the CR-120 District. According to Southampton Town Code § 244-2B, the development yield factor for a CR-120 Zone is 0.36. This agricultural PDD consists of 16.061 acres. By multiplying 0.36 by 16.061 acres this results in 5.78 development credits. Section 244-2B requires that fractional allocation of a development credit shall be rounded to the nearest 1/100 or 0.01 of a credit. Therefore, the development rights certificate shall have 5.78 development credits for this Agricultural PDD.
(b) 
The Agricultural PDD requires a sixty-five-percent open space set-aside should a clustered subdivision be approved after the termination of the Agricultural PDD easement. The open space set-aside shall be encumbered with an agricultural easement, and this area shall be a separate and distinct parcel from those that are to be residentially developed (excluding housing for agricultural labor related to the farming of the open space parcel). This open space set-aside does not have to be defined until all of the development rights are transferred or extinguished. The landowner may increase this open space set-aside.
(c) 
The Town shall file this Agricultural PDD easement within five business days of the execution of this easement and provide proof of filing with the landowner. These development rights may be immediately sold and transferred, or extinguished. These development rights may not be used for development on site unless they are part of a conservation opportunities subdivision, or until a minimum of 10 years has passed since the effective date of the establishment of this Agricultural PDD zone and this easement has been terminated.
(5) 
Sale of development rights. The Town intends to facilitate the preservation of up to 80% of the Agricultural PDD area through voluntary measures with the landowner. One mechanism to achieve this 80% goal is to purchase development rights (also known as development credits when sold or transferred). It is, therefore, the intent of the Town to purchase additional development credits on 15% of the Agricultural PDD area to add to the required 65% open space set-aside as defined herein. In order to encourage the landowner to sell individual development rights (credits) to the Town over time, the acreage to be preserved for each development credit sold shall be calculated as follows:
(a) 
There are 5.78 development rights available to construct five residential units within the Agricultural PDD area. The fractional credit does not equal one residential unit.
(b) 
Sixty-five percent of the Agricultural PDD area to be preserved in a clustered subdivision equals 10.44 acres.
(c) 
Thirty-five percent of the Agricultural PDD area to be set aside for development equals 5.62 acres.
(d) 
Thirty-five percent of the Agricultural PDD area from which development rights may be sold or transferred equals 5.62 acres.
(e) 
The acreage preserved with the sale or transfer of a development right shall be calculated as follows: 5.62 acres divided by 5.78 equals 0.972 acre per credit. Therefore, every time a credit is sold or transferred, an additional 0.972 acre shall be preserved and added to the 65%, or 10.44 acres, that shall be preserved under the cluster requirement.
(f) 
For example, if the landowner sells or transfers 2.78 credits, there will be 2.70 acres preserved plus 10.44 acres for a total of 13.14 acres protected. The remaining three credits shall allow the placement of three houses on 2.92 acres upon the termination of this Agricultural PDD easement.
(6) 
Negotiation procedures for acquisition during the easement period. During the term of the Agricultural PDD easement, the landowner may seek an offer from the Town for purchase of one or more of the development rights or fee title, subject to the following procedures:
(a) 
Submission of a letter of interest and request for an appraisal to the Town Clerk.
(b) 
The appraisal conducted by a certified appraiser for the Town shall be based on the yield and open space set asides defined in the Agricultural PDD or the highest and best use of the property.
(c) 
The Town shall make an offer within 120 days of the landowner's request.
(d) 
The landowner has the option to accept or refuse the offer without any violation of the conditions of the Agricultural PDD easement.
(7) 
Agricultural PDD term. The term of the Agricultural PDD shall be for a minimum of 10 years and it shall remain in effect so long as the landowner utilizes the property for a use consistent with the terms of this easement. The landowner may submit a subdivision application and develop the property as a conservation opportunities subdivision without waiting a minimum of 10 years after the Agricultural PDD has been approved. During the application process, the Agricultural PDD shall remain in effect.
(8) 
Early termination. The landowner of this Agricultural PDD may petition the Town Board for termination of this Agricultural PDD easement and rezoning of the property during the initial ten-year period after the PDD is granted, but not until after the PDD has been in effect for five years. The Town Board may, in its discretion, grant such a petition after a public hearing upon a finding of undue hardship or catastrophic economic loss. This landowner may also request development, consistent with the restrictions set forth in the PDD. The Town Board may, at its own discretion, grant such a request.
(9) 
Procedures for termination of this Agricultural PDD easement. At the conclusion of the ten-year period defined in the Agricultural PDD, the landowner may at any time submit a written notice to the office of the Town Clerk of his intentions to terminate this Agricultural PDD easement. Without such notification, the Agricultural PDD easement shall continue to be in force in accordance with the terms of the Agricultural PDD. Upon such notification, the Town shall have 150 days to exercise an option to purchase the development rights or fee title for all or part of the parcel prior to the termination of the Agricultural PDD easement. The Town shall make an offer on the basis of the fair market value of the property in accordance with the zoning and cluster regulations defined in this easement less any development rights sold or transferred during the term of the easement. If agreement on the sales price is not reached between the Town and the landowner within 30 days of the offer or such additional time as may be agreed upon by mutual consent of the parties, the landowner may develop the property in accordance with the Agricultural PDD and the zoning and cluster regulations defined in the Agricultural PDD easement. The landowner shall have three years to submit an application to the Planning Board in accordance with the Agricultural PDD and the zoning and cluster regulations defined in the Agricultural PDD easement. This three-year limitation can be extended by a resolution of the Town Board. If the landowner fails to request an extension to file a subdivision application, the Agricultural PDD zoning shall expire and the related easement shall terminate.

Hampton Bays West (HBW) Commercial-Industrial Planned Development District (CIPDD).
[Added 10-23-2007 by L.L. No. 52-2007; amended 11-27-2007 by L.L. No. 56-2007]
(1) 
Purpose and objectives. The Hampton Bays West CIPD (aka "HBWCIPDD") has been structured to accomplish the findings, purpose and long-term goals established by the Town Board as part of Article XXVI, (Planned Development District), of the Code of the Town of Southampton and specifically those established under § 330-246C, Commercial-Industrial Planned Development District. Said districts are intended to consist predominantly of commercial and industrial uses or any use not specifically identified but where it can be demonstrated that such use will be beneficial, compatible and harmonious with land uses of the CIPDD and the surrounding area and where it is further demonstrated that the goals and objectives set forth in Article XXVI and the Comprehensive Plan are maintained and furthered. The HBWCIPDD provides for two commercial uses on the combined properties to include an existing 3,142-square-foot fast food restaurant with associated parking and landscaping and a proposed 50,000-square-foot supermarket with associated parking, signage and landscaping as well as a passive park in accordance with a federal court order hereinafter referred to as the "so-ordered stipulation" that resolved litigation entitled "Hampton Bays Connections, Inc. et al. v. Robert Duffy, et al." (United States District Court, Eastern District of New York, Case No. CV-99 7029). Industrial uses and other commercial uses not contemplated as part of this application shall not be permitted without additional review and approval of the Town Board. Based on compliance with the regulations and specific design requirements outlined herein, the development of the subject properties will help achieve the goals of the Town’s Comprehensive Plan, the efficient and cost-effective use of public utilities, services and transportation systems, the clustering of development to preserve open space and natural resources, and the protection of the Town's water supply. Consistent with the requirement of § 330-246C(3) of the Town Code, the HBWCIPDD is considered to be beneficial, compatible, and harmonious with the surrounding land uses, which are predominantly commercial. Specific Comprehensive Plan objectives and public benefits achieved by the Hampton Bays West [CI] PDD are as follows:
(a) 
Provide tax ratable development and source of employment for the community.
(b) 
Promote architectural, signage, lighting, landscaping, sidewalk and streetscape design improvements consistent with Town of Southampton beautification objectives.
(c) 
Alleviate traffic on the CR 80 (Montauk Highway) corridor by providing a cross access road designed to look and function as a street (with sidewalks and landscaping) to connect to adjacent eastern and western properties and ultimately facilitate the Town's long-term objective to provide a continuous bypass of Montauk Highway from Route 24 to Bellows Pond Road, as indicated in the 1999 Hampton Bays Hamlet Center Report.
(d) 
Achieve pedestrian accessway objectives by installing sidewalk and curbing along a central boulevard to extend and connect with Montauk Highway.
(e) 
Maintain a wooded passive public park (approximately 0.72 acre, not to exceed one acre) abutting Montauk Highway, that also serves to mitigate aesthetic impacts by buffering views from Montauk Highway.
(f) 
Preserve 50% of the site's existing natural vegetation that includes contiguous land to the north to serve as open space and mitigate impacts to wildlife habitat including revegetation/restoration of the southern portion of the "flagpole" of SCTM No. 900-221-3-18.
(g) 
Provide a one-time voluntary contribution of $250,000 to the Town, to be utilized for the acquisition of Pine Barren credits, open space purchase, recreation or similar purposes within the boundaries of the Hampton Bays Union Free School District.
(h) 
Provide an ongoing voluntary contribution of $10,000 per year on an annual basis to the Town for the duration of the site's use as a supermarket for Town Board allocation toward public improvements, beautification and/or other community benefits within the boundaries of the Hampton Bays Union Free School District.
(i) 
Subject to review and approval of the Suffolk County Transit, construct within the property a cedar-clad bus shelter to the design specifications of the Town at the northern portion of the passive park to facilitate use of public transportation.

Q. 
RTW Residential Planned Development District (RTWRPDD).
[Added 6-26-2007 by L.L. No. 33-2007]
(1) 
Purpose and objectives.
(a) 
The RTW Residential Planned Development District (RTWRPDD) is designed to accomplish the findings, purposes, and long-term goals established by the Town Board as part of Article XXVI (Planned Development District) of the Code of the Town of Southampton, and specifically those established for a residential planned development district. The RTWRPDD provides an alternative type of residential housing for senior citizens. The Town Board of the Town of Southampton recognizes that Southampton has a high percentage of senior citizens and, given present economic factors impacting many seniors, including but not limited to fixed incomes, physical restrictions, and the rapidly accelerating costs of maintaining a single-family residence, the Town Board deems it necessary to provide for such housing within the Town. The RTWRPDD also facilitates the use of public transportation, as the site is situated along a public bus route and will incorporate the construction of a bus shelter on the Montauk Highway Corridor as one of the public benefits.
(b) 
The RTWRPDD also supports implementation of the 1999 Town of Southampton Comprehensive Plan Update and the 1999 Hampton Bays Hamlet Study in that it (a) increases the amount of affordable housing for senior citizens in the Town, not only for moderate-income seniors, but also for middle-income seniors that are priced out of the market, (b) creates affordable housing that is in keeping with the historic, architectural, and natural qualities of the Town, (c) maintains the residential character of the hamlet of Hampton Bays, and (d) helps to retain the visual continuity along this portion of the Corridor by providing substantial landscaping.
(c) 
The RTWRPDD provides an alternative housing type in the form of multi- units, and much-needed affordable senior housing in the form of community benefit units, as that term is defined in Chapters 216 and 330 of the Code of the Town of Southampton. The RTWRPDD development shall be designed to incorporate various features appropriate for senior lifestyles as well as "traditional neighborhood design" and "smart growth" principles, including (a) providing centralized common areas/Village green(s), around which the residential units will be situated, thereby providing places for the residents to gather and/or engage in recreational activities, (b) constructing sidewalks throughout the development, on-street parking and rear-facing garages to facilitate compact development, (c) providing connections to public transportation and future pedestrian cross access for adjacent uses, and (d) provide building designs that are residential in character, well articulated but not overly exaggerated, that incorporate the traditional architectural features characteristic of the Town of Southampton (including front porches and gabled roofs for all condominium units). In addition, the RTWRPDD shall provide a sewage treatment facility that meets Suffolk County Health Department standards to protect groundwater resources. By enabling a density of approximately six units per acre, the RTWRPDD will be able to provide multi-unit housing opportunities in a creative, desirable, and aesthetic design, that will help achieve both the affordable and senior housing goals of the Town. Moreover, the RTWRPDD provides these housing opportunities in a manner that is considered transitional, beneficial and compatible with the surrounding land uses.
(d) 
Based on the foregoing, the RTWRPDD provides public benefits through (a) the provision of 15 community benefit units, among the 50 total units to be developed, with the first offering of all units, including market-rate units, exclusively to residents of Hampton Bays and East Quogue for a six-month period; (b) the construction of sidewalks and, where appropriate, pedestrian trails internally throughout the community; (c) the construction of internal streets that are lined with deciduous trees and provide parallel parking to reflect traditional neighborhood design (TND) standards (d) the construction of new sidewalks along the entire frontage of Montauk Highway to connect to the existing sidewalks to the east, to include the installation of street trees to screen the pedestrian from the highway (where permissible by the Suffolk County Department of Public Works) (e) upgrading (repair) of the existing sidewalks to the east that this development will connect to in order to provide a continuous walkway to the nearby shopping center (f) retain and augment the existing vegetation along the entire frontage to provide year-round visual screening and continuity along this stretch of corridor as well as substantial interior and perimeter plantings; (g) construction of a cedar-clad bus shelter along Montauk Highway in front of the site to facilitate use of public transportation; (h) contribution of park fee representing $1,000 per market-rate unit (total of $35,000) to the Town to facilitate additional recreational amenities for the community of Hampton Bays; (i) contribution of a traffic preemption (total of $15,000) to facilitate ambulance and fire service response to the subject property; (j) installation of fire sprinklers within all residential buildings to enhance life-safety (noting that the cost of said installation is offset by reducing the number of Pine Barren Credits or TDRs required from four down to two); (k) transfer of two development rights or Pine Barrens credits within the Hampton Bays School District or cash-in-lieu thereof in order to achieve the goals of PDD legislation by offsetting increases in density and providing open space.
[Amended 11-10-2009 by L.L. No. 45-2009]
