For Island Residents & Businesses:

Keep The Islands
Independent

Let’s be a city! The Constitution grants us the right to self-govern. Who could nurture, care for and govern the islands of Talahi, Oatland, Whitemarsh, and Wilmington better than the people that live here? Good roads, community police, ordinances that make sense, and keeping our tax dollars local: these are all possible if we work together. The money you raised for the feasibility study was the first step toward self governance.

You Did It!

Fundraising Goal: $30,000 

The work continues!

Please join us in our efforts to preserve our independent way of life here on our islands! By incorporating the islands into our own city, we can spend our tax dollars here instead of funding projects elsewhere! We are about to move into the next phase of the movement. We'll need money for advertising like yard signs, billboards, and flyers. We need to educate, inform, and inspire our neighbors to vote "YES" when the referendum to incorporate is placed on the ballot. 

All donations of any amount are appreciated! Want to get some sweet City of Islands swag? Check out our online store to buy hats, shirts, phone cases, and other cool stuff that shows your support for our islands! 

Pay online, or make checks payable to: ISLANDS COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION. Cash or check donations can be taken directly to any First Chatham Bank branch location, or given to a member of the Islands Community Association board.
