Who Provides Services on Long Island? An Introduction to the Long Island Index's New Interactive Map

Dozens of special districts on Long Island add to the patchwork quilt of governments providing services to residents. A new interactive map developed by the Long Island Index allows users for the first time to see the boundaries of all local service providers, along with information about how to reach the provider via telephone or Internet and when elections are held. CGR wrote an introductory report (see sidebar) to the project providing background and historical context. The service provider map adds another layer to the Long Island Index’s interactive maps.
