The Sag Harbor Planning Board will continue a public hearing next week on a proposal by Cape Advisors to re-develop the Baron’s Cove Inn on West Water Street in Sag Harbor through the addition of a two-story building, which will house a lobby and bar on the first floor and a restaurant on the second story.
The meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 25.
Last month, a group of neighbors emerged with concerns about the proposed development, specifically that the bar area for the restaurant is proposed for the first floor.
Among other things, neighbors have asked that Cape Advisors move the bar area to the second floor and have asked that all music be kept inside, rather than allowing outside music on the patio near the pool area.
Neighbors have said they are concerned, despite the fact that Cape Advisors has offered a series of concessions including limiting alcohol service to midnight, that under the current plan the downstairs of the restaurant with a bar and lobby area able to accommodate a significant number of people and the space could become a popular destination in the evenings as such.
