Paddleboard Company Wins Fight to Stay at East Hampton Marina
August 8, 2017
East Hampton Star: “I feel like I can breathe again,” Gina Bradley, the owner of Paddle Diva, said this week of a state supreme court ruling that the East Hampton Town Zoning Board of Appeals erred when it barred her from running her business from the Shagwong Marina on Three Mile Harbor.
Paddle Diva has offered paddleboard lessons, rentals, and tours from the marina since 2012, but in 2016, the town’s head building inspector concluded that her operation constituted an expansion of the marina’s use beyond what is allowed under town code. She appealed to the zoning board to reverse that decision, but failed.
