The Association provides vital services to the community
The Association, through its unpaid, elected Board and officers, is the community's primary liaison with Suffolk County, The Town of Brookhaven, The Fire Island Association, and the FIMI Beach Project entities.
Homeowners and businesses in Ocean Bay Park pay property taxes to the Town of Brookhaven, and the Association constantly advocates for the community to secure the services underlying those taxes from the Town. The Association also funds the expense of the Community Manager. As a community on a slender barrier island, storm recovery and coordination, and ongoing beach and bay anti-erosion efforts are a key part of the Association's portfolio.
Other services, ranging from OBP's street lights to the Assistance Cart, walkway plantings, Ferry Dock and Bayview security cameras, and public water fountain are all fully paid for by the Association. In 2017, 56% of income was from membership dues and 44% from other fundraising activities, including the Directory and Community Fair. Read more about the Association.

Special Tax Districts
In addition to Brookhaven property taxes, the community created three special districts. The Erosion Control District rebuilt our beach after the 2009 and 1993 storms and continues to plant, erect snow fencing and scrape excess sand, as allowed. The Park District purchased the land adjacent to the Fire House and the Dock District purchased the land at the dock to limit further commercial development. Association Board members and Committee Chairs oversee districts and projects pro bono.
Ocean Bay Park participates in a joint Seaview/Ocean Bay Park Garbage District.
