Welcome to the Loveladies Property Owners Association (LPOA) website. The 2017 Summer season will soon be upon us and we all look forward to relaxing in the enjoyable breezes of Long Beach Island.

Incorporated in 1951, the Loveladies Property Owners Association is open to all Loveladies Property owners who value the quality of life the community provides.
We offer visibility and support with the principal objective of maintaining the high standards of our community. We also provide an active voice for the betterment of government services, as well as a forum for exchanging ideas and information among our membership. As an integral part of Long Beach Township, we participate in and communicate with other Island communities.
General membership meetings are held twice each year, during the summer months. Experts in their fields are invited to discuss subjects of interest to members, followed by a lively Q&A. Over the years these meetings have also become social get-togethers, providing an opportunity to greet old and new members and chat with township officials responsible for local government.
Through the Association you have an opportunity to meet and interact with your neighbors who have similar interests and concerns.
Joining the Association makes you part of a dynamic local organization that provides valuable contacts and connections that can be beneficial to you as a property owner. We invite and encourage all who own property in Loveladies, and who reside there at least part of the year, to join the Association and participate in its activities.
Loveladies, a residential community, is a section of the Township of Long Beach. It occupies the portion of Long Beach Island between the towns of Harvey Cedars and Barnegat Light.
In 1871 a U.S. life saving station was established here, and it became necessary to call the area something other than Station Number 114. There was a small, 10 acre island in the bay adjacent to the station which was owned by a Waretown man named Thomas Lovelady, who had set up a shack and shooting blinds there to hunt waterfowl. It was therefore determined that the area would be called Lovelady's -- which eventually evolved to Loveladies.
The community was popular with summer visitors from New York, and eventually blossomed into a lovely shore retreat for beach lovers from far and wide. Most of the homes here were destroyed in the catastrophic storm of 1962, and the rebuilding effort produced a vast array of modern homes noted for innovative architecture and design.
Loveladies is also the cultural hub of the island. It's home to the LBI Foundation of the Arts and Sciences, a non-profit institution devoted to teaching, support and enhancement of the creative arts and physical sciences. Its renowned educational programs, workshops, classes and exhibitions are now offered to the public year-round.
