Suffolk County - The Town Board of East Hampton, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Three Local Laws pertaining to: The Community Preservation Fund and the Two Percent Real Estate Transfer Tax will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of the following three (3) local laws which involve the implementation of the Peconic Bay Region Community Preservation Act: the Community Preservation Fund; the Community Preservation Project Plan; the Two Percent (2%) Real Estate Transfer Tax. These local laws will enable East Hampton Town to levy a 2% real estate transfer tax on most real estate transactions. The resulting revenues may only be spent for the protection of agricultural and open space properties in accordance with the Community Preservation Plan. Certain buyers of land are exempted from paying the 2% transfer tax including federal, state and local governments, not-for-profit organizations, and *farmer-to-farmer* transactions. The first $100,000 of a sale of vacant property and the first $250,000 of a sale of developed property are exempt from the tax. These three (3) local laws are interrelated actions and, therefore, the environmental review of these actions is being conducted together to avoid a segmented review.
