1977 General Management Plan
Fire Island National Seashore's current General Management Plan was published in late 1977, and signed (with an addendum) in March 1978, as a result of planning efforts which began in July 1975.
Fire Island National Seashore was established on September 11, 1964. The park's first planning document was prepared in 1965 and adopted in 1967. Additional plans were initiated in 1971, before work on the current plan began in July 1975.
Funding was received in 2006 to start the planning process again for Fire Island National Seashore.
