At our June 16 DIPOA Open meeting, Roberta Swann made a presentation to the membership on behalf of the Mobile Bay Estuary Program about this upcoming study. The purpose of the study is to understand the condition of the watershed and promote opportunities to ensure its long term health. The meetings for "shareholders" (property owners are a class of shareholder) will begin next month.


The first meeting will be held at the Shelby Center on Dauphin Island, Thursday September 8, 2016 @ 6:30pm.  
There will be other reminders sent in advance of the date.

​To learn more about the study, you may read  the Dauphin Island Watershed Management Program  Project Description HERE.


We have received notice (See HERE) from the Alabama Historical Commission that the Isle Dauphine Club at 100 Orleans Drive, Dauphin Island, Alabama has been proposed for nomination to the National Register.  The Alabama National Register Review Board will consider the nomination at their meeting scheduled for September 29, 2016 in Montgomery. You are not obligated, but are encouraged, to send written comment in advance of this meeting to support, in your opinion, that this site meets National Register Requirements. You may use this template as an outline to write the Historical Commission. We have been looking toward this for quite a few years and we are excited to be so close to consideration at this time. If you have further questions about the designation, please visit the  Alabama Historical Commission website ​or contact: Collier Neely

When the Town's lease on WSB ended, this beach reverted to the DIPOA. The Town agreed to make all parking areas in their right of ways "Permit Only Parking" at the request of the DIPOA. These town ROW and parking areas are at Raphael Semmes, St. Stephens, Sam Houston and S. Sehoy Streets.  Information about how to and who may obtain Parking Permits is HERE. Garbage cans have been placed at each right of way by the DIPOA. The DIPOA BOD and the Town Council continue to work through issues related to this as they arise. Please contact the Directors if you have any concerns, comments or questions regarding permitting, or call the DIPOA Office @ 251-861-3144.

Please remember the Office Manager takes a lunch daily, usually between 11-1. If you plan to stop by midday, give Denise  a call first to be sure she's in the office .

The Office Manager is looking for a few good volunteers to assist with some tasks in the file room. There are multiple drawers of records that need to be alphabetized, old meeting minutes/financial reports to be organized and filed, and lots of old papers to be shredded. Just stop in the office or call Denise, we appreciate any assistance!
