In 1921 the Connecticut General Assembly approved the Charter incorporating The Groton Long Point Association, Inc (GLPA). All landowners on Groton Long Point are Members of the Association. The Members vote to adopt the annual budget, enact ordinances, and to elect a governing body comprised of a President, Vice President, Treasurer, Clerk, and five Directors. Collectively this body is known as the Board of Directors. The Board is supported by numerous Commissions and Committees. Groton Long Point has its own Police, Fire, and Water Departments. Board Members are responsible for Public Works, Parks and Recreation, Docks, Beaches and Lagoons. The Association employs a part-time Zoning and Building Official and a full-time Office Manager.
There are several other organizations that operate in Groton Long Point, that are not part of the GLPA, but involve many from the community. These include the Groton Long Point Yacht Club that provides summer programs for children and adults, events, sailing regattas, and fireworks and the Groton Long Point Women’s Organization who provide service, fundraise and sponsor social events for the betterment of the GLP Community.
