VILLAGE PLANNING Continued from Page 1 street, connecting Main Street and Lumber Lane, and additional parking to the rear of the property. The plan increases the size of the parking lot proposed in the other two plans for the Bistrian property near the railroad station, and eliminates the proposed expansion of the lot behind the Bank of New York. Instead, a lot would be built behind the VFW Hall and Parrish Mews, a project which would neces­ sitate buying and tearing down at least two houses. There would be three areas desig­ nated for multiple-family housing under the third plan, as there is in the second plan. The mini-mall, however, would be made into a full mall, with no traffic at all on Newtown Lane between the A & P and the intersection with Main Street. To reach Main Street, traffic headed east on Newtown Lane would have to either turn right and cut through the Reutershan lot on the improved \through” lane, or turn left by Schenck’s onto a new road which would cut behind the stores on the north side of Newtown Lane and terminate on North Main Street. Comprehensive Plan The idea of a full mall along Newtown Lane was also in the 1967 Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehen­ sive Plan, however, provided that Newtown Lane traffic be routed onto a new road to run along the southerly edge of the railroad tracks from Pleasant Street to North Main, a different route from that proposed by Mr. Collins. All three of Mr. Collins’s plans call for improvement of pedestrian walk­ Eastman Project Some people have suggested that East Hampton Village put a damper on all construction projects in the central business district until John Collins finishes his planning study of the district. Village officials, how­ ever, said the suggestion' was not workable, and work on various projects thus has progressed. One major project, which soon is expected to come off the drawing boards, involves a complex of retail stores to be built on the site of Candles ‘N Things on Main Street. The developer would be Lee East­ man, who owns the property and the building which houses Candles ‘N Things, among other properties in the Village. The building will be torn down, and apparently a row of stores would be built running in, facing an existing walkway, from Main Street. Details of the project have not been released, but Clayton Morey, Village Planning Board chairman, said he and Mr. Collins had looked at the plans and found them in keeping with ideas Mr. Collins has for the central business district. Mr. Eastman does not have to make any applications to the Village Planning Board to do the work he plans. He merely has to obtain a building permit from the Village building inspector. A small struc­ ture to the rear of Candles ‘N Things, which used to be a bicycle shop and more recently was an antique shop, has already been moved. T.N. ways between the retail buildings along Newtown Lane and Main Street, and a “dress-up” of the rear entrances to shops along those streets. Mr. Collins is apparently most concerned with accommodating pedestrians and improving pedestrian flow. If a new civic center were created on the Baker property, his hope is that it and Odd Fellows Hall would serve as two ends of a heavily traveled pedestrian corri­ dor which would filter people past many of the shops in the central business district. Clayton P. Morey, chairman of the Village Planning Board, said most of those on the Mayor’s committee work­ ing with Mr. Collins seemed to think the third plan of the Philadelphia engineer was too ambitious. There was particular concern that a full mall along Newtown Lane would create too much of a traffic flow problem, he said, noting that the mall idea never gained much support locally. Mr. Morey also said many at the meeting felt none of Mr. Collins's plans provided enough parking on the east side of Main Street, where the need is greatest. Victor Amann, Village build­ ing inspector, was particularly critical MHT School Ray Warren, captain of the East Hampton Fire Department’s Engine Company Number Two presented a program, including a film showing and discussion, on fire prevention at Most Holy Trinity School on Tuesday, in observance of National Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 9-15. Sister Eileen Kelly’s kindergarten­ ers visited the Falkowski potato farm in Bridgehampton last Thursday. The class gathered 300 pounds of potato culls, some of which students brought home. They used the rest for making potato chips and potato stamp prints, in class. Rudy Dengel, a Springs artist who has spoken widely on whaling, pre­ sented a talk on the subject to Ethyl Comerford’s third and fourth grade class last Thursday. He displayed a harpoon, dolphin and whale teeth, and samples of scrimshaw from his collec­ tion. He also sketched different species of whales. The following day the class did further research and art work concerning whaling. Jeanine Astorr was selected the student of the week in Mrs. Comer- ford’s class last week.

Elementary School The first in a series of informal “coffee and conversation” meetings between parents, community mem­ bers, and the John Marshall School’s principal, Neil O’Connell, will be held at of Mr. Collins on that point. None of Mr. Collins’s plans are final. He is still working on alternative proposals and is looking for ideas from the community. The next meeting he will hold with the Mayor's committee will be Nov. 10, and it will be open to the public. In the meantime, Mr. Collins is scheduled to meet with the merchants of the Village on Oct. 27, to discuss the ideas he has come up with so far.
