SMSKA Vision Statement
Our vision for this wonderful duo of barrier islands is to be a friendly place, welcoming to landowners, tenants, and visitors alike. We wish to preserve the scenery, ecology, ambiance, culture and casual beach lifestyle that is unique among coastal communities. We envision this land and its surrounding waters to be kept clean, accessible, and environmentally sound, thus promoting natural wildlife and casual recreation. We will be hospitable to our off-island neighbors who want to enjoy the beaches, businesses and amenities that abound here. We wish to continue the limitations on tall buildings and commercial areas as to preserve the views and privacy of others and to retain the density restrictions in order to limit the total population of both keys. We see an engaged community that works with local government to achieve our best interests. Finally, we will not challenge the rights of property owners who seek to develop their properties without harm to their neighbors and within the existing codes and zoning. We treasure all residents and guests who work toward improving the look, feel, and health of this prized spit-of-land.
