Providing Montauk Residents a Means to Speak and Act as One!


The Airport

Posted by joan on 26 January, 2017 at 17:30

To the Editor,

In the 1/12/17 issue of the East Hampton Star, David Gruber and the East Hampton Airport Planning Committee, a group of airport neighboring property owners, announced a solution to their long term suffering inflicted by the outrageous activities of the East Hampton Airport. The plan is in response to what the Committee has continually deemed an intolerable and dangerous affront to mind and body, an intentional all-out attack on the environmental habitat, an Armageddon to the character of the town, a destroyer of property value, a tool of the rich and a moral insult at a level of physical and mental psychological outrage that no one should be made to suffer.

What is the Committee’s solution to all of this emotional grief and hardship? What is the answer to their proclamations regarding the airport’s unfair, unhealthy, and immorally disgraceful assault on a segment of Town’s property owners who they represent, while continually and constantly reminding us of our Town wide moral obligation of supporting the righteousness of their property interests? To all this, the East Hampton Airport Planning Committee has a breathtakingly simple effective solution. They want the town to buy the Montauk Airport. That’s it….. Problem solved….. Case closed. The Committee’s reasoning is impeccable: Why should we suffer all of the above when we can pass it off on Montauk.

In terms of airport vicinity-property owner-logic, it is indeed an extremely awesome proposal. Buy the Montauk Airport and in a flash neighboring East Hampton Airport property owner’s woes, problems and miseries become Montauk’s woes, problems and miseries. And if that were not enough, the Committee has graciously undertaken to solve any worrisome issues that may arise over funding of the above plan. Easy… use the East Hampton Community Preservation Fund money…. Additional comment unrequired.

Even disregarding the immorality, selfishness, and all out hypocrisy of such a scheme, there exist countless physical and real world reasons why Montauk Airport would be a nightmare in terms of impracticability, safety, management, and physical size. It also would be a total unmitigated disaster to the economic, civic, and private property ownership of The Montauk Hamlet which represents a real factual economic base, population center, and voting bloc far larger than any unproven, undocumented group which the East Hampton Airport Planning Committee claims to represent. However, if we ignore the standards of group responsibility to one’s own problems, civic good-citizenship, and the ethics of responsible planning, the East Hampton Airport Planning Committee’s idea is indeed an effective solution, as indicative in the above proposal, to what has always been their primary goal: “anywhere, but not in my backyard.”

Citizens of Montauk, beware.

My wife and i got quite excited when Peter could complete his survey through the entire ideas he gained while using the web site. It's not at all simplistic to just possibly be releasing steps which often people today might have been making money from. And we all see we've got the writer to be grateful to for this. The main explanations you have made, the straightforward website navigation, the friendships your site make it easier to promote - it's everything spectacular, and it is leading our son in addition to us imagine that the issue is excellent, which is certainly exceedingly serious. Many thanks for the whole thing!

I must express some thanks to this writer for bailing me out of this instance. Right after searching through the internet and obtaining views which were not beneficial, I thought my entire life was done. Existing minus the approaches to the difficulties you've sorted out as a result of your short post is a serious case, and the ones which could have adversely damaged my entire career if I had not noticed the website. Your personal capability and kindness in touching the whole lot was tremendous. I'm not sure what I would've done if I had not encountered such a step like this. I am able to at this moment look forward to my future. Thank you so much for your high quality and result oriented guide. I will not think twice to suggest the website to any person who requires counselling on this problem.

I want to express some thanks to the writer just for bailing me out of this particular situation. After surfing around through the world-wide-web and seeing things which were not productive, I figured my entire life was well over. Living without the presence of strategies to the issues you've sorted out all through your entire blog post is a crucial case, as well as the kind that would have negatively affected my career if I hadn't noticed your web page. Your own personal skills and kindness in playing with all the pieces was valuable. I don't know what I would have done if I had not come across such a solution like this. It's possible to at this moment look ahead to my future. Thank you very much for your professional and results-oriented help. I won't think twice to propose the blog to any individual who needs and wants counselling about this subject matter.
