Brookhaven Shoreham Beach Fishing Ban

973 Signatures Goal: 1,000

Brian X. Foley Supervisor Steve Fiore Councilman Jane Bonner Councilwoman Kathleen Walsh Councilwoman Connie Kepert Councilwoman Timothy P. Mazzei Councilman Keith Romaine Councilman 1 Independence Hill Farmingville, N.Y. 11738 Dear Town Board Members: The Town of Brookhaven has 153 miles of coastline and a population of 448,519 with only 14 areas to go fishing legally. Recreational fishing is the number 1 pastime in the United States. Saltwater anglers are estimated at 10 million individuals in the United States. Salt and freshwater fishing combined add over $60 billion to the U.S. economy. Many town residents find walking along the beach and fishing one of their favorite pastimes as it is affordable and beneficial to their quality of life. Yet one board members zeal to benefit a few, has made a public statement that anyone going fishing through Shoreham Town Park property would be treated as a criminal. Why has the town closed Shoreham Park on September 1st , 2008 to all users This clearly benefits a few at the expenses of many residents. I find the fishing policies of this board to be repressive and whose purpose is put into effect to benefit a few wealthy shore front home owners, so they may have their own private beach. Sincerely,

Sponsor
