Water Main Extension Frequently Asked Questions and Answers:


Question:  The letter states that commitment deposits will be tallied by CWC to determine their contribution. If this tally does not reach 61% of the 145 residents, does this project still move forward with the full cost being levied to the 145 residents?

Answer: The level of homeowner commitment obtained will be considered when determining
whether the project moves forward. No cut off level has been established at this time.


Question:  You stated in the Shoreline Times (Z06) that a referendum would be required for the
project to continue.  When is that referendum scheduled to occur?
Answer: No date has been set for the referendum at this time.


Question: The water main route will be crossing property behind Sachem Head (not part of
Mulberry, Tuttles, or Long Cove communities) currently owned by a private citizen(s).  Will those be  official town easements?
Answers: All easements will be Town owned.


Question: If the water main extension is approved, would a developer be capable of buying said property(s) for housing development?
Answer: There are no plans for water connections in this area at this time. Any future development would have to comply with Planning and Zoning requirements.


Question: If homes or commercial properties are added either via a developer or other builder of any kind, will they be assessed payment for any and all connections to the water main?  If connections are made to the water main, will the assessments to Mulberry, Tuttles, and Long Cove communities be reduced to compensate for all additional contributors?
Answer:  Future connections to the water main by property owners outside the project area would be subject to the special assessment. Additional assessment income would reduce the individual assessments of the primary property owners.
