NEW SUFFOLK - Residents in a small East End community are divided over plans to reopen an old restaurant on a piece of preserved land.

A group of community members bought the land several years ago where an old restaurant, the Galley Ho, sits. The group wants to refurbish and reopen the restaurant with a capacity to sit 66 people.

They say doing so will make money to keep the land preserved. However, those opposed to the idea say the plan is too big and want it scaled down. Suggested ideas include turning it into a smaller concession stand or food truck.

The issue will be discussed Monday night in front of Southold's Planning Board.
