Island Blast Fireworks Display

The show will be conducted on Sunday, July 3, 2022 near 13409 Whitecap Boulevard. The Island Foundation is the host organization that is accepting contributions. We look forward to having another great show on the Island!


Towing- Last week, seven vehicles and trailers were towed. There has been a significant  increase in the number of vehicles and trailers that have been towed over last year’s summer  season. The number of sticker sales is above last year’s pace. It appears that the growing  number of tourists visiting the Island has caused the increase in tows. Reminder, the PIPOA  makes no money from the towing of vehicles. You can purchase your sticker for $10 at the  PIPOA Office located at 14015 Fortuna Bay Drive. 


There is a problem with some condominium complexes. That is, the condo management is  telling short-term renters that they can go ahead and park their trucks and boat trailers on the  boat ramps. Unfortunately, the condo management is not providing the tenants with a PIPOA  trailer or vehicle sticker. Therefore, these poor folks are getting towed. Condo managers, please  buy stickers for your tenants. Please do not tell them to park on the boat ramps without stickers.  


It was another quiet week at the PIPOA. Not much new news to report.

Boat Ramp - The Caravel boat ramp will be closed for resurfacing began Tuesday, May 31, 2022. The resurfacing should take approximately three weeks. However, it should be open and ready for use for the July 4th holiday.

It was another quiet week at the PIPOA.  Be careful what you wish for, the current rains will bring mosquitos and weeds.

Board Meeting- The Board meeting held on Tuesday, May 24, 2022, was uneventful.  Bob Corbett, our ISAC (Island Strategic Action Committee) representative, gave his report from the last ISAC meeting.  He discussed short-term rentals (STRs) and Whitecap Development.
