The Sag Harbor Village Board of Trustees will hold a public hearing on what has been called the Long Wharf Rehabilitation Project at its Tuesday, October 9, meeting at 6 p.m. in the village Municipal Building.

The plan includes a new steel bulkhead, a new drainage system, repaving, better pedestrian access and a new public space at the end of the wharf. A handful of parking spaces would be lost to accommodate a public pavilion at the end of the wharf.

In September, the plan was discussed by the Sag Harbor Village Planning Board, which looked favorably on the project. The cost for the project was estimated at $3.8 million in May. Last year, the village was awarded a state grant of $550,000 for the project.
