Fire Island NS Pre-NEPA Off Road Vehicle Driving Regulation and ORV Management Plan

Fire Island National Seashore » Fire Island NS Pre-NEPA Off Road Vehicle Driving Regulation and ORV Management Plan » Document List

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. Through this process, a path forward will be identified for a more formal regulation change and NEPA process.
