The Yale Urban Design Workshop has prepared the document titled Sustaining Fishers Island: A blueprint for protecting the future. This work is a result of a thorough study of Fishers Island including its unique considerations, assets and constraints, and through conversations with Fishers Island residents /stakeholders and Island Community Board (ICB) members representing different island organizations, and then further assessment of the island’s options. It contains recommended steps to address the long-standing and long-term issues of population, jobs, infrastructure and the present and future costs of Island living. (Publish Date: March 2014)
