Support Shelter Island's Short Term Rentals, and PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY RIGHTS!

Please sign our petition and allow short term rentals to continue on Shelter Island, a time honored tradition dating back to the 1870's. PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY RIGHTS! We are facing a Town Board that wishes to regulate/eliminate short term rentals, who would discriminate against families with a required two week minimum, crushing our local seasonal economy. One week rentals, and weekend rentals, are a time honored standard on the island, and have been for over a century. A two week minimum rental violates the US Federal Fair Housing Act, as well as the New York State Division of Human Rights Fair Housing Act. Will you raise your voice with us? Don't allow housing discrimination - it's unlawful and mean-spirited. This will negatively impact our seasonal businesses and our community. Are you an island business owner? A two week minimum will reduce your summer revenue by 50% - that's economic suicide! We don't want over regulation - we want Shelter Island to enforce present laws on the books. Please donate $100 to our legal fund (helps with our legal fees and filing costs). You may now donate visibly or anonymously to support short term rentals on Shelter Island: Please send your check to Michelle D'arcambal, DOCB, 40 Fulton Street, Suite 1005, New York, NY 10028

Protect the Rights of Irvine Residents; Demand the City put its People *BEFORE* Developers

------------------------------------------------------------------------------ UPDATE 6/13/17:  Thanks to our supporters, significant progress has been made!  The Irvine Company has proposed to move the Safari Substation to an alternative site that is acceptable to both the City of Irvine and the Spectrum 5 community (NoSubstation.com).  We are now asking Southern California Edison to agree with the proposal.  Please SIGN OUR PETITION and come to the Safari Substation Public Discussion on Tuesday, 6/27/17 @ 4:00PM to show your support.  For more information, please read the Petition Updates posted below. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Call on the Irvine City Council to continue taking decisive action on behalf of the people of Irvine! The Spectrum 5 community originally came together to stop Southern California Edison (SCE) and The Irvine Company from dropping a high-voltage electrical substation in the middle of our fully built-out community.  After nearly 1-1/2 years of petitioning the Irvine City Council and Planning Commission, we have obtained the support of the City Council. Now both The Irvine Company and SCE are speaking to us about alternatives for the Safari Substation.  This is the kind of resident-city-utility-developer dialogue we have been asking for since the beginning. Please sign our petition to let the City Council and City staff know that we appreciate and support their initiative in getting the Safari Substation moved to a safe and compatible location.
