About LIBPA

What is LIBPA? LIBPA is a state chartered, nonprofit community organization founded in 1981 to allow the residents and business owners of Lady's Island to have a voice in the direction of growth on their island and to protect its natural beauty.

LIBPA History: During the 27 years LIBPA has been in existence, it has served as the voice of Lady's Island regarding annexation, zoning, design and construction of Sam's Point Road and Highway 21, obtaining an EMS station on Lady's Island and the planning for future roads, parks and schools.

Who makes up LIBPA membership? LIBPA is comprised of Lady's Island businesses, schools, homeowner's associations and individual residents. Currently there are about 200 members. Our strength is in our numbers, so as the island grows, so too should our membership. In addition to the general membership, LIBPA has a board of directors. See the main page for a current listing of the board members.

Where and when are meetings held? LIBPA membership meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 8a.m. at Beaufort County Realtors Headquarters, 22 Kemmerlin Lane, Lady's Island.
