[Adopted 9-12-1997 by L.L. No. 2-1997]
Prior to August 2, 1995, § 7-738(2) of the Village Law empowered the Board of Trustees to grant cluster development authorization to the Planning Board by resolution specifying the lands to which cluster development may be applicable. The courts interpreted such language to mean that such authorization may be granted for a particular parcel of land. As amended by Chapter 417 of the Laws of 1995, effective August 2, 1995, § 7-738(2)(a) of the Village Law empowers the Board of Trustees to grant cluster development authorization to the Planning Board by local law specifying the zoning districts in which cluster development may be applicable. It is not clear from such language whether such authorization may still be granted for a particular parcel of land. If and to the extent that § 7-738(2)(a) of the Village Law does not empower the Board of Trustees to grant cluster development authorization to the Planning Board for a particular parcel of land, this local law is intended to amend § 7-738(2)(a) of the Village Law in its application to the Village of Southampton so that such authorization may be granted for a particular parcel of land. Section 7-738(2)(a) of the Village Law is hereby amended in its application to the Village of Southampton by adding the following provision at the end thereof, to wit: Such local law may specify the lands to which cluster development may be applicable, may authorize the Planning Board to approve a cluster development for a particular parcel of land, and may provide that such authorization shall be limited to the particular parcel of land therein specified.
