the Edisto Beach Property Owner's Association


Statement of Purpose:

To incorporate property owners in Edisto Beach,
South Carolina in order to function adequately,
properly and in a timely manner on any and all
matters in which we have similar or common
interest. To protect our beach and its environs,
its residents and people from excessive population
density, over-development and commercialization.
To have legal representation on a retainer basis
that our Association will be able to act in unison on
any question that may be controversial, illegal,
or potentially damaging to our way of life.
To have an organization which will have represent-
atives at each and every meeting of our municipal
government and in this regard to have proper
input into the activities of our town council,
its boards and committees.


Membership in the EBPOA is of two types:
1) Owners of property on Edisto Beach. These members
have voting rights. and 2) Any person, regardless of property
ownership, who wants to protect Edisto Beach from over-
development and wants to become a member. This type of
membership does not have voting rights but has full participation
in the activities of the Association.

Dues are $30.00 per year for both types. Included in the
dues are barbeque dinner tickets for two at the annual
meeting each spring.

Candidate's Forum prior to each election as a public service
to inform the voters of Edisto Beach.

EBPOA solicits volunteers from its membership for various civic
projects such as erecting sand fencing and a recent cleanup
of the Bell Property.

EBPOA has canvassed its membership on their preferences
on restrictions on zoning and building and has
influenced ordinances enacting these restrictions.

property taxes and to restrict assessment increases by
constitutional amendment.
