ICB seeking broad participation to build basis for a Long-Term Plan for Fishers Island

by Jane Ahrens

The Island Community Board (ICB) is looking for broad public and organizational participation, with the goal of aligning community input and organizational priorities as a basis for a long-term plan for Fishers Island.

ICB Representative Nate Malinowski shared this Statement of Purpose outline at the ICB meeting Tuesday, March 9, 2022. Please take some time to review this before the April 12 ICB Meeting where more specifics will be presented.

Developing the Basis for a LongTerm Planning Effort

As the central forum for Fishers Island, the ICB is uniquely positioned to be the corridor through which the important work of the island’s institutions and the needs and priorities of our community can be aligned.

The Elected Representatives of ICB are endeavoring to organize, through engagement with our community and Appointed Organizational Directors, the basis of a long-term planning effort for Fishers Island.

We expect this work will:

  • Provide island organizations with deeper and valuable insight into the community’s well-known priorities, pressure points, and long-term interests.
  • Highlight opportunities for collaborative approaches around specific island priorities
  • Establish the basis for a long-term plan aligned around the priorities of our community, that can be the foundation for communication with and input to the town of Southold.
