Southampton Supervisor Jay Schneiderman and Sag Harbor Village Mayor Kathleen Mulcahy signed an inter-municipal agreement today for the John Steinbeck Waterfront Park.   The Town purchased the 1.25 acre property with Community Preservation Funds and the Village will design, construct and manage the park.

“The Town of Southampton is proud to partner with the Village of Sag Harbor to create this new waterfront park,” said Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman.  “Steinbeck Park will enhance the Village experience for everyone and honor a great American author who cherished Sag Harbor.”

Sag Harbor Mayor Kathleen Mulcahy said, ”This is a banner day for Sag Harbor, a community which has poured millions of dollars into the Community Preservation Fund particularly the last few years.  The new park saves an absolutely vital piece of our waterfront from development and instead offers a lovely gateway to our village.  We expect in due time this will become a beautiful amenity for residents and visitors alike.  None of this would have been possible without the generous support of the Town and the dedication and hard work of former Mayor Sandra Schroeder and Trustee Jim Larocca, who tirelessly led this effort over the past four years.”  

More than 100 people attended the signing ceremony, including members of both the Town Board and the Village Board of Trustees, New York State Senator Ken LaValle and Suffolk County Legislator Bridget Fleming.
