East Hampton passes coastal legislation!

by Surfrider Foundation

The Town Board of East Hampton, NY recently voted to approve new legislation to protect the Town's beaches and coastal resources. While creating a Coastal Erosion Hazard Overlay District, this new legislation has had the support of the Eastern Long Island Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation because it prohibits any new hard erosion control structures from being built on the Town's ocean beaches.

Local press coverage of the new coastal legislation can be viewed by following the following link to the ELI Chapter's website.
