Attention City Residents... we need your input on these issues!

Over the last couple of months, a few issues have been discussed by our Commissioners. We thought it important to get your feedback so we have created a 10 question survey that will allow you to chime in on the following issues:
  1. The future of Beach Blast Off
  2. Commissioner Compensation
  3. Paid Parking
These subjects have all been addressed before. In recent meetings there has been discussion on all three. Our Board thinks we have a good feel for how the community feels on these subjects, but we are hoping this survey will give the Commission the community's current temperature on all three. City Residents, property and business owners CLICK HERE to take this survey

New Lease for SABCA and Non-Profit Coalition

Thank you Mayor England, Commissioners Samora and Rumrell

Nearly 15 years ago, the Civic Association renovated the old Police Garage at Pier Park.  The work was done by volunteers and all materials were bought and paid for by SABCA.  Had two Commissioners gotten their way, SABCA and the other non-profits using the garage for storage would have been kicked out.  Thanks to Mayor Margaret England and Commissioners Don Samora and Dylan Rumrell, the good work will continue as we now have a new three year lease. 

We have used the building to serve the community with free Wifi at Pier Park, storing supplies and production items for Music by the Sea, Beach Clean Up, and Surf Illumination.  We support other non-profits who use the building for community good.  Currently, The Art Studio, Friends of Historic Scenic A1A Byway and the local Bocce Ball League all utilize space in the building.  This vote was very important for us and the good of the community.  Please thank these Commissioners for their support

2021 Schedule and Ticket Info coming soon!

Our 2021 season marks 19 consecutive seasons of free family fun!  Music by the Sea is the creation of the all volunteer Board of Directors and members of the St Augustine Beach Civic Association!  Season 19 will again be a diverse mixture of musical styles and local art!  We are partnering with The Art Studio Group and will be featuring the works of local Artisans each week prior to the concert!  The Art Studio is located in the old beach front hotel just a hundred yards from our concert venue at Pier Park!  Schedules and ticket information will be posted very soon on this site and our MBTS Facebook page!
