Montauk Beach Property Owners Association



Our 2018 MBPOA annual beach party 

2018 marks the 76th for MBPOA

Members enjoyed this year's beach party held on Sunday, August 5th

We hope you were able to participate in this year's annual beach party. It was a very sunny and hot day but the ocean waves were calm enough to allow access to the cooling Atlantic water. There were well over 400 members who signed in and received the our beach party wrist band providing access to plenty of food and drink. 

The food was as tasty as ever, with hot dogs, pulled pork sliders, fried chicken, corn on the cob and tons of cold drinks. We had a variety of chips but many commented on the healthy food option of cold carrots or pickles. Following the children games, we served cold watermelon and cookies. It would not be a beach party without a sandcastle contest and games of tug of war, limbo, sack races and the ever popular egg toss. The steel drum music set the party mood and had many singing and dancing along to the rhythm of the islands. 

The challenge of where to hold the event due to the limited about of open beach at Webster this year and mother nature's whim of a storm on Saturday had the beach party team making a lot of last minute adjustments. We thank the town of East Hampton for working with us to change the location and allow for parking on the roads around Arnold Court beach. 

A big round of applause goes out the the MBPOA board and members who worked tirelessly to provide a fun event for all in attendance. The annual party is a feel good community gathering and what a better venue then the lovely Hither Hill beaches.

How to report a "Grouper" or share-house violation

Ensuring the community enjoys the summer

Share houses, or what is known as "Groupers", has become a major issue for our MBPOA community. This basically means that there are too many unrelated people staying in a house. East Hampton Town has "Grouper Laws" that do not permit more than four unrelated people to rent a house. A rented house may not have more than four cars parked at it.

If you see, hear or witness a “grouper” or share-house, you can call Code Enforcement at 631-324-3858 and report the violation. Be sure to ask for a customer complaint number for your records.  You can find all the ordinance forms on the East Hampton Town Web site.

Or better still click here (requires latest version of Adobe) to fill out an ordinance issue complaint form. This form will immediately go to the Town Code Enforcement office and subsequently to an enforcement officer to investigate the complaint.

Town officials have said the quicker they receive a complaint, the quicker that can act on it…and the more complaints they receive, the stronger the case is for the Town to take action. Here are the details on the process.  

This year marks the 76th of the Montauk Beach Property Owners Association. We would like to thank each and every one of you for the outstanding support you have given this association throughout the years. For new members, we would like to welcome you to the MBPOA and encourage your active participation in our association. With your involvement, the MBPOA and our ocean beach will be a source of pleasure and pride for many generations to come.
