The pros and cons of flyboarding were debated at Tuesday’s Riverhead Town Board during a public hearing on a plan to regulate the up and coming sport, which is being done at Treasure Cove marina.

Jim Bissett IV, who operates Flyboard Long Island  at the marina, said the town’s proposal to push them 500 feet off shore was excessive, while some neighbors said the Flyboarding was noisy.

The board also voted to rezone the Second Street firehouse to DC-1, a mostly commercial zone that’s in place on most of downtown Main Street. The town agreed to change the zone as a condition of a $500,000 sale of the property to Suffolk Theater owner Bob Castaldi, but some residents, as well as Councilwoman Jodi Giglio, argued that the town should seek new bids for the property now that it is rezoned to a more business-friendly zone.

The board also agreed, in a 3-2 vote, to authorize the conversion of the Henry Pfeifer Community Center in Calverton into a new town animal shelter.

The owners of Hotel Indigo East End on West Main Street have filed plans to add a catering hall and retail stores on a 4.2-acre plot of land next to their property, just south of Tanger Outlets.

The plans on file at Riverhead Town Hall show three buildings in total: a proposed catering facility with two floors at 11,000 square feet each, a two-story building with 2,600 square feet on the first floor and 400 square feet on the second floor, and a 9,200 square foot retail building with six storefronts.
