Fire Island to Montauk Point (“FIMP”) is 100% federally funded beach nourishment that may become available to the eastern stretch of Quogue Beach. Public access [parking and access] on an equitable basis to meet local demand is a prerequisite to any federal expenditure for beach restoration. 30 years of maintenance is cost shared with the Village and  the Village is responsible for approximately 11% of maintenance costs.  This a relatively small unknown number as the scope of the project is under review based on the increased erosion. Regardless, the federal and state governments are picking up almost 90% of these costs. The Federal Government also guarantees 87% of the work over a 10 year period.

The Army Corps of Engineers performs this work on behalf of the public and therefore it is not possible to privately pay the Army Corps to do the work in an attempt to obfuscate the need for public access.
