Peconic Bay Region Community Preservation Fund Advisory Opinions Bureau

The five East End Towns have been authorized by law to form an Advisory Opinions bureau to provide for effective and consistent administration of the Peconic Bay Community Preservation Fund (2% tax). The bureau has representatives from the towns, villages and public at large. The opinions rendered by the bureau are advisory, and adopted opinions are posted below as guidance for both public officials and members of the public on issues related to the proper uses of the Community Preservation Fund (CPF).

Opinion 2013-1
. Summary: CPF money can be used to buy a dog park if (1) the property was acquired for dog park purposes; (2) such use is compatible with the natural character of the land and (3) no CPF money is used to maintain the dog park.

Opinion 2013-2
. Summary: CPF money may not be used to fund four poster deer tick control programs.

Opinion 2013-3
. Summary: There are no limits to the frequency for which parcels may be considered for acquisition with CPF funds.
