SKA PROJECT UPDATES

IN OUR 70TH YEAR OF SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY

The Siesta Key Association was formed in 1948 as a 501(c)(4) nonprofit community group dedicated to maintaining Siesta Key as an attractive residential area. Siesta Key has no unique government entity. Our mission is to provide a representative voice with county government in civic and community affairs of interest to all property owners and residents on Siesta Key. 

SKA has about 2000 individual members , but we always welcome new ones.  Join us today to participate in this important community organization.  Simply click the link to the right to get started.  Just a $30 yearly investment will help us all to protect the distinctive character of Siesta Key.

Stay Active with SKA

The Siesta Key Association has a rich tradition of representing and proactively lobbying for the rights of the citizens of Siesta Key. It is becoming ever more critical to have an active member body that represents the interest of all property owners on Siesta Key.

SKA needs volunteers who can actively participate in subcommittees that work closely with the County to beautify our island, look after the environment and ensure that zoning laws are followed, so we can look forward to maintaining the essence of Siesta Key that is so important to all of us. Please contact info@siestakeyassociation.com for more information.

If you don't have the time to participate in subcommittees, you can learn more about what is happening in your community and contribute your ideas by attending any of the monthly SKA Public Meetings held the first Thursday of every month.

And don't forget to keep your email address current! We don't want to lose touch with you!
