THE HISTORY OF LITTLE LAGOON PRESERVATION SOCIETY:
The Little Lagoon Preservation Society, LLPS, is open to all who enjoy and appreciate Little Lagoon, including property owners, full and part-time residents, and vacationers.
In 1991, a group of Lagoon Lovers joined together with the common desire to improve and maintain water quality and recreational opportunities.
Also, in 1991, homeowners west of Callaway Pass took legal action to remediate beach erosion caused by the pass jetties extending into the Gulf of Mexico. LLPS intervened with the West Beach Property Owners lawsuit and added water quality maintenance in Little Lagoon as a concern in the court action. LLPS and West Beach Property Owners prevailed in the suit, resulting in a court order requiring the Alabama Department of Transportation to dredge and maintain the channel into the lagoon and place pass channel dredge spoils back into the coastal drift system west of the pass. This victory allows for continuous circulation and flushing of Little Lagoon, maintaining stringent water quality standards, and assisting property owners west of the pass to maintain their beaches.
Today our membership includes more than 250 families.
LLPS is a 501(c)3, not-for-profit organization, and contributions are tax-deductible.
Quarterly meetings are held on the third Thursday in January, April, July, and October. Typically, meetings begin at 5:30 pm at the Gulf Shores Activity Center and include 30 minutes for mingling and light refreshments and a guest speaker beginning at 6 pm.
