Nearly 80% of the electorate in Long Island’s five east end towns voted for the extension and expansion of the Community Preservation Fund to 2050. This will allow up to 20% of revenues to be used to improve water quality. This could raise nearly $2 billion for land protection work and $700 million for local water quality improvement projects. Since 1999, the Community Preservation Fund (CPF) has raised over $1 billion for land and historic preservation in East Hampton, Riverhead, Shelter Island, Southampton and Southold, which cover 40% of Suffolk County’s land.
