The East Marion Community Association strongly objects to the granting of a dredging permit to Oki-Do, Ltd. because we believe that the applicant is attempting to circumvent a thorough environmental review of its intent – a proposed spa, motel, restaurant and marina – which should be completed under State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) by the lead agency, the Planning Board of the Town of Southold. Attempting to split the project into smaller segments is a violation under the State Environmental Quality Review.
