In conjunction with the Town of Shelter Island’s blood drive, The Island Gift of Life Foundation is proud to sponsor a bone marrow drive through Be The Match. Supporting bone marrow drives is part of the mission of The Gift of Life that provides financial assistance to our local East End community members suffering from serious illnesses. For patients diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma and other life-threatening diseases, a bone marrow or cord blood transplant may be their only hope for a cure. A simple swab of the inside of the cheek allows you to become part of a national registry and a potential marrow donor. More information about how a marrow donation works can be found at or call Gina Kraus at 749-3358.

   Shelter Island Boaters Guide 

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.
