Save Sag Harbor Plans Public Forum on Harbor Heights Expansion

Posted on 24 April 2013


Save Sag Harbor has announced it will host a community gathering next week to discuss why the group believes the proposed expansion of the Harbor Heights Service Station and new convenience store on Hampton Street will negatively impact the historic church and the gateway to Sag Harbor Village.

The community meeting will be held on Saturday, May 4, from 3 to 5 p.m. at the St. Davis’s A.M.E. Zion Church on Eastville Road. The church, which was built in 1840, is believed to have been part of the Underground Railroad. The burying ground across the street was recently awarded a site preservation grant by the Archeological Institute of America.

Save Sag Harbor will be collecting donations to help pay for legal fees incurred fighting this specific project and also help Sag Harbor Eagle Scout candidate Dana Harvey restore the church bell tower.

    The remaining sane village residents need to “save” Sag Harbor from Save Sag Harbor! The proposed new facility would dramatically improve the gateway to the town. The present facility is a blight upon the community. Same old Sag Harbor stuff – say no to everything! Remember Bulova? Over THIRTY years to finally develop. Priceless!

    Nicely put, R Burns. The current station is an eyesore, and dangerous.
