A proposal to install a fence around the ancient Eastville Cemetery on Eastville Avenue was tabled by the Sag Harbor Board of Historic Preservation and Architectural Review (BHPAR) once again on Monday night, as members of the community’s historical society tried to pursue additional funding for the project.
Originally proposed as a wrought iron fence in front and a metal chain link fence on the other three sides, the BHPAR urged the society to consider materials other than chain link. The society has said, however, it does not have the money for anything other than chain link. The society asked the BHPAR for the adjournment, saying it was seeking additional funds from the grant it had received to do the work. The Eastville Community Historical Society, which is proposing the work, is expected to meet with the board again in February.

Angela Scott and Daniel DeSimone received approval for a certificate of appropriateness for work at their house at 46 Spring Street.
“There are two things in question,” Scott told the board, “brick and windows.”
The couple were unanimously approved to build a chimney of brick that matches the same brick in their driveway, and to install new Marvin casement windows.
William Cummings, at 211 Division Street, received approval to demolish the terrace on the back side of his house and to repair the flat roof. He also will replace an existing door, and remove an existing window and replace it with a matching door. All work is on the back of house.
Cummings also was approved for a fence to conceal his air conditioner condenser and landscaping with privet hedge.
George Holly, represented by architect Anthony Vermandois, received approvals to replace the foundation of his 22 Rector Street house.
“We gutted the house,” said Vermandois. “The superstructure is in fairly good shape, the foundation not.”
The board approved work to dig out a 9-foot basement and a new poured concrete foundation with brick veneer.
Vermandois also stepped in to represent his neighbor, Judith Auchincloss, who received permission for a new tool shed, which was already installed.
