Davis Park Association – DPA Efforts – What We Do:

  • Note 2024:
    • We have dropped the tick program for a couple of reasons. First, the tick tubes are widely available at lower cost (try Amazon, Home Depot etc.). Second, there are concerns about overall efficacy. We are looking into other tick control efforts and welcome your input.

Erosion Control:

    As many of you know, since the series of storms beginning last Fall badly damaged our beach, we have been working with the FIA, our colleagues across Fire Island, and Town, County, State and Federal officials to (i) address the immediate emergency, (ii) repair our FIMI project, and (iii) put in place a program to maintain our beach for the long term.

      • Our first goal — the Trapbag Project — is nearing completion.
      • Our second goal — the FIMI Repair Project — has been formally approved and the initial federal funding provided.
      • As to our third goal — Long-Term Maintenance — negotiations are underway to close the necessary agreements with the Towns of Brookhaven and Islip. Together with federal funding, we will contribute to maintaining our dune and berm through our Erosion Control District.
      • There is a long list of people to thank for the progress to date: Senators Schumer and Gillibrand; USACE Colonel Alex Young, Governor Hochul and the NYDEC; Congressman Garbarino; County Executive Ed Romaine and the Dept of Public Works; Town Supervisor Dan Panico, Deputy Supervisor Neil Foley and Deputy Commissioner Michelle DiBrita; FIA President Suzy Goldhirsch, FI Pines President Henry Robin and Seaview President Tom Ruskin.
      • Finally, thanks to Michelle DiBrita and her staff, Coastline Freight, Bobby Palermo and our own John Lund, we are ready to go with a new round of sand fencing.

    Community Activities:

      From our July 4th Parade (with the DPFD) and Swap & Shop, to upgrading our infrastructure (think dog stations, garbage and recycling cans), to our phone list and new online calendar of events (please let us know of your events and updates), to our community herb garden (with CRAB) and our playground efforts (with Friends of DP and CRAB), we work tirelessly to enhance our community.

    • We support and work with all our community organizations — DPFD, DPMA, CRAB, Friends of DP — and commercial interests — Casino Cafe, CasBar, Harbor Store. And who could forget our wonderful Post Office!
    • Finally, we are eternally grateful to have Father Frank and Sister Grace in our community and we support and thank them for all they do.  
    • Communications & Liaison: As you can see, one of our principal roles is to stay involved with all levels of government whose activities affect our community. We are especially grateful for our excellent relations with Ed Romaine and Neil Foley, both true friends of Davis Park. Davis Park is also an active member of the Fire Island Association, carrying on the legacy of Bob Spencer and the work of FIA Director Emeritus John Lund.
    • Finally, we work hard to keep you all informed of matters that affect Davis Park, through our emails, DPA website and Facebook posts. Reach our if you or someone you know is not getting our emails: dpa@davispark.org   So please, join the DPA and show you appreciate our efforts and let us know if there are things you’d like to work on.
