Twomey Latham congratulates our colleague, Lisa Clare Kombrink, on her appointment as Community Preservation Fund Manager for the Town of Southampton.
For the past 25 years on the East End of Long Island, Lisa has worked with families, conservation groups, and public officials to preserve and maintain the unique, rural character of the community. Lisa will continue to serve as Counsel to the firm.
The Community Preservation Department is responsible for the administration of the Town’s land acquisition program. This historic and progressive legislation has given the Town of Southampton a powerful tool to achieve its long-standing farmland, open space, and groundwater protection goals.
Since the inception of the Community Preservation Fund in April 1999, it has generated over $384 million in the Town of Southampton for the preservation of over 3,000 acres of land throughout the town. The Town of Southampton has become a leader in land preservation with the assistance of matching funds from Suffolk County, New York state, and the federal government.
In addition to her legal work, Lisa serves on the Board of Directors of the Southampton Hospital Association and is a member of the Stony Brook Southampton Hospital Executive Committee and the Quality Assurance Committee. At the State level, she is a board member of the New York Higher Education Capital Improvements Matching Grant Program.
Lisa lives in Southampton with her husband, Jesse Camacho, and their 18-year old son, Gabe.
