Who do you call for what in Madaket? With FOUR Homeowner’s Associations and a Land Trust, it is confusing to reach out to “West-Enders.” To make the confusion complete, our names even overlap!
Dedicated to protecting and preserving Madaket
Actively foster awareness and information about Madaket area issues
Do not engage in partisan politics
Do not promote candidates for public office
Volunteer elected leaders
Madaket Conservation Association (MCA) was formed in 1958 as a community/informational organization.
Is not a political organization; does not take a position on issues.
Distributes information, meeting notices and hearings so members can make their decision on the issue at hand
Membership open to all Madaket residents, renters, visitors that share a love for Madaket
Madaket Residents Association (MRA) was formed in 2012, when Madaket Homeowners Association and Tristrams Long Pond Association merged.
Committed to advocacy on behalf of its members
When it takes a position on a community issue, it only speaks for its dues-paying members (currently 146) and the Tristrams Interval Owners of 26 houses who make a contribution to the MRA (currently 300)
Membership open to all Madaket residents, homeowners and interval owners
Madaket Land Trust (MLT) was founded in 1985 to maintain the Madaket area’s green belt.
Developers of Tristram’s Landing donated land to be protected as open space
Group holds 65+ acres in conservation. It allows walking on its properties
Its beaches and parking areas are open to the public: specifically one on Chicago Street near the end of Madaket Road, and a second on Starbuck Road
Smith Point Association was founded in 1976, as an area specific homeowner organization
Fishers Landing Association was founded in 1988 as an area specific homeowner organization
We hope this clears some confusion, particularly around the Madaket Conservation Association and the Madaket Residents Association.
