The Shelter Island Association is a non-partisan, not-for-profit community organization dedicated to providing information in order for Island residents to make informed decisions on critical issues that will affect their quality of life and the future of Shelter Island.
An issue of current interest to many Islanders is what effect short-term rentals, such as those advertised by some residents through and similar online websites, might have on the Island environment, property values, and our life style.  Some Island residents have complained about late-night partying at unregulated short-term rentals. Other residents have stated that they've only rented to well behaved families and needed the extra income to make mortgage payments.
Therefore, the Association is conducting this survey and plans to provide the results to the Shelter Island Town Board, as well as to the Shelter Island Reporter.
