This article is adopted by the Village Board of the Village of East Hampton pursuant to the authority granted the Board under the provisions of the Municipal Home Rule Law of the State of New York.
A. 
The Town Trustees of the Freeholders and Commonality of the Town of East Hampton (hereinafter the "Trustees") have ownership of and authority over certain beach areas within and adjacent to the boundaries of the Village of East Hampton. The Village Board has such powers and authority over beaches within and adjacent to its boundaries as have been granted it under the provisions of the Village Law and the Municipal Home Rule Law of the State of New York. In an effort to provide similar, although not identical, rules and regulations for all beach areas within the Town of East Hampton, the Village Board and the Town Trustees have promulgated the following rules and regulations with respect to all beach areas within and adjacent to the boundaries of the Village.
B. 
The provisions of this article shall apply to all beaches within and the ocean beaches adjacent to the boundaries of the Village of East Hampton.
For the purpose of this article, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:
ACCESS
A means of entry to or exit from a beach.
BEACH
All land lying between a body of fresh or salt water and the base of a bluff or dune. In cases where there is no bluff or dune present, then the "beach" shall be all land lying between such body of water and the naturally occurring beach grass or the upland vegetation if no naturally occurring beach grass is present.
BLUFF
A formation of land which is landward of the natural beach and which rises sharply from its base to a bluff line where the natural land contours resume a gradual slope.
CAMPING
Includes but is not limited to the use of any vehicle to sleep in; the use of a tent or other temporary structure to sleep in; or sleeping on the beach after sundown.
DUNE
A naturally occurring accumulation of sand in wind-formed ridges or mounds landward of the beach, often characterized by the natural growth of beach grass (Ammophila breviligulata). Included in this definition are deposits of fill placed for the purpose of dune construction.
OPERATE
The same meaning as that given it in the Vehicle and Traffic Law. A person "operates" a vehicle when he begins to use the mechanism of the vehicle for the purpose of putting the vehicle in motion even though he does not move it. "Operate" is markedly broader than "drive" and includes, among other things, sitting behind the wheel with the keys in the ignition even if the vehicle is not running.
PROTECTED BIRDS
Birds now or hereafter listed on the New York State and/or federal threatened or endangered species list.
TRUSTEE BEACHES 
Beaches owned and managed by the Trustees. Included within "Trustee beaches" are the following:

The beaches adjacent to the following bodies of water: Wainscott Pond, Georgica Pond, Hook Pond, Lily Pond and Town Pond.
TRUSTEES
The Trustees of the Freeholders and Commonality of the Town of East Hampton.

[Adopted 2-15-2002 by L.L. No. 1-2002 (Ch. 36 of the 1971 Code)]
A. 
The property on which the Main Beach Pavilion and Parking Lot #1 (the parking lot adjacent to the Main Beach Pavilion) are situated was purchased by the Board of Trustees of the Incorporated Village of East Hampton on June 16, 1937, from private individuals. The funds to purchase the property were raised from the issuance of a Village of East Hampton bond secured with the full faith and credit of the Village taxpayers. The property, then known as the "Maidstone Bathing Pavilion," was already improved with locker facilities, but over the years, and through the issuance of additional Village of East Hampton bonds, the facilities have been further improved and maintained. When the property was first acquired there were as many as 300 lockers, and although the total number of lockers has fluctuated, for many years there was ample opportunity for residents of the Village and nonresidents to all have the seasonal use of a locker if they wished. There are now 176 lockers at the Pavilion, of varying sizes, which have been issued to Village residents and nonresidents on a seasonal basis according to an informal process by which locker-holders have been given the first opportunity to be issued the same lockers in all ensuing seasons. Locker-holders have also been traditionally entitled to park their vehicles in Lot #1, immediately adjacent to the Pavilion, while non-locker-holders use the parking lot across the street. Although a fee is charged for the use of a locker, the acquisition, renovation and general maintenance of the overall facility has been underwritten by Village tax revenues. As a result of the increasing population, the tendency of locker-holders to renew their request for the same lockers year after year, and the increasing demand for lockers, the Village has developed a lengthy, virtually stagnant waiting list for the use of seasonal lockers, with some Village residents and taxpayers having to wait many, many years for the opportunity to use a locker, while their taxes subsidize the maintenance of the lockers and general facilities at the Main Beach Pavilion. Meanwhile, the majority of lockers are held by non-Village residents.
B. 
The Village Board of Trustees finds that it is appropriate at this time, given the increasing demand for lockers, the general stagnation of the waiting list, and the fact that these facilities are supported by Village taxpayer revenues, to codify a procedure for the seasonal use of the lockers and the parking lot adjacent to the Pavilion that gives the Village taxpayers a priority. The Pavilion, including rest rooms, a snack bar and a deck, and the beach next to the Pavilion, have always been and will continue to be open to members of the general public, with nonresidents, as always, paying a fee for the privilege of parking in the municipal lot.
C. 
The intent is to utilize the long-established waiting list for lockers by codifying that Village residents will be issued lockers on a first-come-first-served basis. If there are any vacant lockers before the beginning of the season, nonresidents will be issued locker permits on a lottery basis. The intent, furthermore, is to provide for enforceable rules and requirements for the use of the facility generally and to confine the seasonal permit requirements for the Village-owned parking lot across the street from the Pavilion to Chapter 267 of the Code (Vehicle and Traffic).
A. 
Definitions. As used in this section, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:
NONRESIDENT
Any individual who does not meet the definition of a resident.
RESIDENT
Any individual who:
[Amended 4-19-2002 by L.L. No. 10-2002]
(1) 
Is registered to vote in Village elections; or
(2) 
Owns property in the Village, including a shareholder in a housing cooperative located in the Village; or
(3) 
Is a volunteer or exempt member of the East Hampton Fire Department or the Ambulance Association serving the Village of East Hampton.
B. 
Permits for the use of the lockers located inside the Main Beach Pavilion shall be issued on a seasonal basis, as follows:
(1) 
The Board of Trustees shall, by resolution, establish the fees to be charged for the use of the lockers, based on the respective size of the lockers.
(2) 
Residents. Village residents who have had the use of a locker or a locker permit during the previous season shall be given first opportunity to obtain a permit for the same locker during the following season. In addition, the Village Clerk shall, on a continuing basis, maintain a list of Village residents who did not have the use of a locker during the previous season, but wish to obtain a locker permit for the following season. The list shall retain the order in which residents have signed up for a locker. Upon payment of the applicable fee and upon the submission of proof of Village residency, the Village Clerk shall issue a seasonal locker permit to those residents who had lockers the previous season, and then, on a first-come-first-served basis, to any Village resident desiring the use of a locker.
(3) 
Nonresidents. The Village Clerk shall, on a continuing basis, maintain a list of nonresidents who wish to obtain a locker permit for the following season. If there are any vacant lockers remaining upon June 15 of each year, permits for those lockers will be issued to nonresidents based upon a lottery drawing.
(4) 
One sticker only, entitling the vehicle to which the sticker is affixed to park in Lot #1, the lot immediately adjacent to the Main Beach Pavilion, shall be issued with each locker permit. Nonresident locker permit-holders shall pay the fee required under § 267-5C of this Code for the sticker. The sticker must be affixed to a vehicle which is owned or leased by the locker permit-holder or a resident of the same premises in which the permit-holder resides.
(5) 
Locker permits and Lot #1 parking stickers are nontransferable and nonassignable.
(6) 
The contents of all lockers must be removed no later than September 15 of each year.
A.
