Since the establishment of Fire Island National Seashore (Seashore) in 1964, the development, access, technology, and use of Fire Island has dramatically changed, but the off-road vehicle (ORV) regulations in place to protect the Seashore’s resources have not. Currently, the Seashore manages ORV driving based on 1987 driving regulations and issues driving permits via Special Use Permits for residents and other services. The Seashore is taking a hard look at the existing regulations to identify where regulations can be changed in order to create a more efficient and less burdensome driving permit program for both the NPS and community members.
Fire Island National Seashore will be hosting two webinars on September 2 at 6:30 p.m. and on September 16 at 1 p.m. ET to share information with the public about the park’s evaluation and on-going project related to the Off-Road Vehicle driving program. The intent of the webinars is to provide opportunities for the public to learn more about the project, ask questions of NPS staff, and get information on how to provide formal written comments through the PEPC website. Each webinar will begin with a presentation, followed by a question and answer session.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. It is recommended to join the webinars via computer in order to have full use of the webinar tools GoToWebinar provides.
