2021 Membership Update

We invite you to renew your 2021 BIRA membership today.
If you haven’t been a member, we invite you to join us. 

The Block Island Residents Association is an advocate and financial supporter of the Block Island community. Our mission is to enhance the Island’s environmental, recreational and social well-being so that its residents and visitors alike may achieve the fullest possible enjoyment of the Island’s unique natural surroundings.

Hello Friends!

The summer of ‘21 on Block Island is here! And we’re optimistic that the coming weeks will bring us back to enjoying and experiencing all that Block Island has to offer. This year, through your dues and donations, we are continuing to support organizations that include Helping Hands, the Lunch Bunch, the Deer Task Force, and programs for island students through the Block Island School.

We are happy to support once again, Movies on the Beach. BIRA continues to advocate for sensible moped reform and public safety and supports the RespectBI Coalition and the Town Council in their efforts. We will continue to support and advocate for island conservation. We are also continuing the Shore Access Initiative Fund – a public/private partnership to improve access to our beaches.

We are also forming a NEW Council of Advisors to work with the Board to help us initially develop our thinking around two specific topics identified by our Board, based on responses to our 2021 survey and other feedback: (1) affordable housing on BI; and (2) the protection and restoration of BI’s iconic viewsheds. See our update for more information on this new initiative.

BIRA exists to represent and serve Block Island’s diverse community and is proud to support a broad range of initiatives. Whether you are a part-time resident or a full-year Block Islander, our goal is to be your voice. Your membership is a stake in Block Island’s present and future. We truly need your support and welcome your participation.
