Shelter Island’s Capital Planning-Grants Committee

Mission Statement & Goals for 2018


Mission Statement:  To develop and maintain a long-range strategic plan to manage, monitor, and maintain or replace Town assets that considers priorities, costs, and funding resources.


Goal #1:   To develop, analyze and adopt a “Multi-Year Capital Plan” conforming to NYS Comptroller recommendations and aimed specifically at maintaining and  improving the town’s infrastructure and its assets.

Goal #2:   To utilize “innovative/advanced” on-site wastewater treatment systems where feasible at town facilities (such as Crescent Beach, Wade’s Beach, and the Legion/Youth Center) which will help improve water quality on our island and in the Peconic Estuary.

Goal#3:   To work with the town’s Community Housing Board to research and examine funding opportunities, to include grants, in support of both CHB and town goals for 2018.

Goal #4:   To examine funding opportunities, to include grants, for the purchase of a generator for the town’s Medical Facility, which provides medical care, as well as serving as a facility for our Senior Citizens programs and is a Town designated emergency shelter.

Goal #5:   (note: once the work on the Multi-Year Capital Plan is complete)    To utilize that plan as a guidance document for the committee to assess possible funding streams (including grants) for plan items.   In addition, the committee will work to periodically update the Multi-Year Capital Plan in consideration of changing needs and costs.
