It is good to see the Feds acting quickly to address the destruction rendered to Fire Island by HURRICANE SANDY.
HERE IS A MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT. (THANKS TO THE GREAT FIRE ISLAND WEBSITE / FACEBOOK SITE FIREISLAND.COM FOR THE LEAD ON THIS)
- Conflicts of use.
- Public safety hazard due to the lack of adequate facilities for trash and human waste.
- Lack of Dune protection: Hurricane Sandy leveled the dunes in this area, which increases the visibility of the beach from other public use areas.
- New Habitat: The Hurricane sandy over wash areas left by the storm created added habitat for sensitive species in the area.
- Increase in criminal activity in the designated clothing-optional areas.
