The DIPOA is pleased to report that the lawsuit involving the transfer of West Surf Beach to the Town of Dauphin Island has been resolved in a mutually agreeable manner.

As a result of the Settlement, the Town and people of Dauphin Island can unite in their efforts to address the critical issues that the island faces today. Under the terms of the settlement, the conveyance of the West Surf Beach to the Town of Dauphin Island can now be accomplished and allows the Town of Dauphin Island seven years to secure adequate funding and commence a beach renourishment project.

With the settlement of this litigation, the Town of Dauphin Island can now actively proceed with its efforts to address and solve the erosion problem on the West End. The Town can also proceed to take the necessary steps to insure that Dauphin Island is restored in such a manner that it can continue to act as an effective barrier island and buffer of the Southwest Alabama coast.
