Comment Period for FINS General Management Plan Ends 9/17

The FINS Draft General Management Plan (GMP) has been released for public review and comment period.

The NPS Preferred Alternative as outlined in the GMP (Management Alternative #3) recognizes the important role that the communities play as advocates and stewards of Fire Island. There is also a clear commitment by FINS to find common ground on management policies where in the past there has been conflict and dissent.

It is important for all fire islanders to make their voices heard and support the new fins policy of collaborative partnership. Please submit comment in favor of preferred alternative #3. (See GMP summary, preferred alternative #3) The entire draft GMP may be found online at To offer comments on-line, click on the project name Fire Island General Management Plan.
