Long Island Sound Access

← Back to Departments Overview

'Access' is this case includes just enjoying views of the water as well as other activities such as fishing, kayaking, and swimming.  The area itself does not need to be owned by the Town or the City.  It just needs a place where the public can park their cars or take public transit.  If there is a daily use fee or a parking fee that is acceptable.  It is also acceptable if it is a Town residents only facility, it will just have to be notated.  What would not be acceptable are places that have membership fee or yearly dues.  Private facilities such as a private marina would not be acceptable.

This information is being used currently to understand the number and different types of areas the public can enjoy the Long Island Sound.  Future goals would be to hopefully increase the number of areas the public can access the Long Island Sound and/or increase the number of area the public can physically interact with the water such as fishing, kayaking, or swimming.

Curbside Recycling Rules

Villages in the Town of Rye have “dual-stream recycling.” This means paper waste (paper, magazines, newspapers, boxes, etc.) must be placed separate from commingled waste (hard plastic containers, metal cans and foil, glass, and cartons).
