Sag Harbor Gas Station Plans Tabled Again


A long-debated and scaled-back proposal to renovate the Harbor Heights Service Station and add a convenience store, expected to be presented to the Sag Harbor Village Zoning Board of Appeals on Tuesday night, was once again tabled.

The decision marks the third time the newly redesigned plans, which will require fewer than the eight variances originally requested—but still calls for the addition of new gas pumps—has been tabled by the board.

It has been three years of turmoil since John Leonard of Petroleum Ventures LLC, which owns the gas station property, proposed his original renovations. Neighbors of the Hampton Street business and the not-for-profit Save Sag Harbor, which aims to keep the village historic and residential, have publicly opposed the plans at prior ZBA meetings.

Since the opposition and clarifications by the ZBA, Mr. Leonard has continued to tweak his plans but has yet to present the redesigns publicly because the discussions have been repeatedly tabled by the zoning board.

The next zoning board meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, September 17.
