KEEP AMAGANSETT BEAUTIFUL.
The Amagansett Village Improvement Society was founded in 1921. It’s original objectives, “the improvement of the roads, cemeteries, park and greens and the advancement and improvement of welfare and the best interest of Amagansett,” remain as true today as they were then. We continue to pay tribute to the goals set by our original members, preserving the character of our small hamlet and keeping it beautiful for all residents and visitors.

This past year gave us one of the sunniest summers ever! The weather provided days on end to get out and enjoy all that Amagansett has to offer. Thanks to your donations and dues we were able to complete many exciting projects.
Triangles and Tree Boxes
The triangles at Atlantic Avenue, the Railroad Station, and Skimhampton Road have been planted and are being maintained by local nurseries. The tree boxes along Main Street have been planted with liriope and will be maintained throughout the season.
This summer the Atlantic Avenue tennis courts had new landscaping planted and a new water fountain/bottle filler installed..
AVIS continues to maintain the Main Street flagpole and displays our flag all along Main Street during holidays.
Main Street Beautification
The planter boxes along Main Street are filled with colorful flowers during the warmer months and seasonal greens at other times.
Trees on Main Street
With the help of many volunteers and gracious donations we plant and maintain the trees in the lanes and on Main Street.
