Brookhaven/South Haven Hamlets Study

  Previous Next Last

The 1995 Brookhaven/South Haven Hamlets Study was prepared by representatives of Brookhaven and South Haven Hamlets as part of the Community Based Planning Program of the Town of Brookhaven under the auspices of Dr. Lee Koppleman, the Town’s planning consultant.  While, as of this writing, the document is nearing its 20th anniversary, it continues to provide useful information on the history and demographics of the community, and as a fundamental planning document for the future.
