Mission Statement

The Bay Lake Improvement Association (BLIA) exists to preserve and enhance the natural environment and the community of Bay Lake.

Brief Description:

  • BLIA is a non-profit organization representing friends of Bay Lake. Volunteer Officers and Directors are elected to pursue the Mission of the Association through a structure of standing committees. Active committees exist to address everything from governmental and environmental issues, to membership and social matters. 
  • A network of ambassadors, known as Beach Captains, exist to represent all the “beaches” or sections of shoreline.
  • BLIA publishes the “Breezes”, a newsletter used to inform, entertain, and communicate with the membership. BLIA also contributes to and organizes, a community website.
  • BLIA holds an annual meeting of the membership and several social and fundraising events each year. 
  • Many years ago, the BLIA incorporated an Environmental Fund. Proceeds from various fundraising activities provide financing for environmental initiatives to protect and preserve Bay Lake.
  • BLIA has approximately 500 members.
