Like many small rural communities, this waterfront community has seen its share of changes. Family gardens have been replaced by supermarket chains, kerosene lanterns have been replaced by electric lights. Gone are the days of the ox drawn plows and the Model A automobiles. The community has always enjoyed a close knit spirit, where neighbors have looked out for and helped each other. Although we have moved into the era of high speed technology, this little Town still embraces that same community spirit that it did in days gone by. In early 2008 that harmonious spirit brought the community together for a common cause, to preserve our unhampered lifestyle. ..
- It was the consensus of the majority that it would be in the community’s best interest to incorporate, thus allowing the Town to make its own decisions concerning its future growth and development.
- On April 21st., 2009, the residents voted in a referendum of incorporation, which passed by approximately two-thirds vote in favor of incorporation.
- At the time of incorporation this tiny close knit community had realized a history of one hundred and eight years. Its current population consists of 558 permanent residents, as well as a large number of home owners and property owners who live elsewhere and claim Perdido Beach as their home away from home.
- It has been said,“Perdido Beach is not just a place-but a state of mind”..
Hey Fellow Townsfolk!
The Public Works (PW) committee wants to pass on the following information so that you are all aware of what we have done and currently have in the planning stages.
The Rights of Way mowing has begun and there will be six (6) cuttings from May to October. Only the town’s rights of way will be cut by our contractor. County areas within the town’s environs are up to the Baldwin County Public Works and we do not know their schedule. When possible try to keep abutting rights-of-way at your property cleared for cutting during these months.
We recently completed roadwork on Maple Street and have surveyed several other streets in town that have been prioritized by the Town Council for this fiscal year. These include, but are not limited to:
Perdido Vista South
portions of Anniston
sections of Hildreth
East and West sides of State
With the surveys completed we can now schedule out the work. Keep in mind our budget is limited. We currently have a balance in the PW budget of $34,693.80 and $17,978.30 is available from the Gas & Diesel Tax fund. These amounts reflect only the invoices which have been turned in and paid out and may not be accurate at the time of this posting.
We hope that everyone has a safe and happy Summer. Please, be aware that you will see our contractors around town doing projects such as roadwork and right-of-way cuttings. Be respective of their work and for your safety and theirs do not approach them while they are working. Unless you see a need to interrupt their work for a clear emergency situation contact the Town Clerk at (251) 962-2200 if you have concerns about any of the work these contractors are doing. When possible do not confront our contractors directly, again, for yours and theirs safety.
Thank you and have a blessed day!
DISCLAIMER: The project design may change accordingly due to Federal Agency reviews and requests
