Members of the Shinnecock Nation are frustrated that no action has been taken on proposed legislation and moratoriums on construction in certain areas of Shinnecock Hills.

Public hearings have been adjourned for months without a vote because, Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman told a group of people who protested in front of Town Hall on Tuesday, the coronavirus won’t allow a large group to gather and voice their support or opposition for the proposals. Town meetings have been held via Zoom, and some people have appeared in person to speak on other issues.
