Wombles Ruling Up in the Air
Denise Schoen of Tarbet, Lester, and Schoen, the attorney for Michael Davis, who owns the Wainscott Wombles property at 411 Montauk Highway in Wainscott, received a two-week extension of time on Tuesday to respond to the Concerned Citizens of Wainscott, as represented by David Eagan, who is challenging a ruling by the town building inspector that a residence on the lot, which has a commercial use, would be legal.
Alex Walter, the Z.B.A. chairman, reported that the two sides were in negotiation toward a possible settlement, and the extension was approved unanimously.
“We’re trying to settle the matter between my client and Mr. Eagan’s multiple clients. I’m hopeful that we’ll be able to reach an amicable settlement,” Ms. Schoen said yesterday.
“We stand by our legal analysis as correct,” Mr. Eagan said at the meeting. “We have been approached by counsel of Wainscott Wombles if they could come up with a different plan. Our goal all along is for that property to be redeveloped in accordance with law,” Mr. Eagan said
