Welcome to the Town of Shelter Island website.
Shellfishing Status
The Dering Harbor Shellfish Program is OPEN
Harvesting after sunset and before 8:45 am is illegal and will result in the program being suspended.
The area will be CLOSED Christmas and New Year's Day.
 You can check the status by calling the Town's Shellfish Hotline at 740-0400 (Option 9 then Option 7.)
 It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Shelter Island Town’s Internet site.
  We have developed this website to provide you with important information about Town government - - which will enable you to become a more informed citizen. We have also included a Community Calendar--let us know if your group is planning a community event.

A recent addition to this website is our town's homeowner handbook. I believe that you will find this to be a useful and informative guide to living on our special island.

You will find minutes of the various appointed boards such as the Planning Board, and the Zoning Board of Appeals. There's a directory of all elected officials, department heads, committee members.

We are also very pleased to provide you with a special feature - - the entire Shelter Island Town Code - - at no cost and user friendly. Our site also has useful links to other web sites for visitor and tourist information.

Finally, the recent news section of this site has information about new town plans and initiatives. Email me your thoughts about them. Keep checking to find out what's new.

I invite you to familiarize yourself with our web site, and to return and visit often. We look forward to your feedback so we may continue to expand and improve the content of this site.
