"The approval of the Central Pine Barrens Commission is a key and final authority on whether the Kent Animal Shelter
may rebuild," noted Pamela Green, Kent Animal Shelter's Executive Director, who is celebrating her 30th year at the helm of the North Fork organization. "The existing structures have reached a critical stage of deterioration to the extent that the shelter may have to cease to exist."
A public hearing held by The Central Pine Barrens Commission on the proposed new facility at the Kent Animal Shelter will take place on Wednesday, March 18th at 2 p.m. at Southampton Town Hall (116 New York 27A, Southampton).
The Calverton-based animal shelter has already prepared building plans as well as gotten approvals from all agencies concerned, with the exception of local elected officials and appointees.
Kent Animal Shelter is asking to supporters to either attend the hearing, sign an online petition (www.change.org
) or send a letter of support to:
Central Pine Barrens Joint Planning & Policy Commission
624 Old Country Road
Westhampton Beach, NY 11978
