About WICA

Mission Statement

The Mission of the Water Island Civic Association (WICA) is to provide an effective democratic mechanism to enable the Water Island Community to consider and implement ways of

(1) maintaining and enhancing the quality of life on the island.

(2) developing a positive working relationship with public officials.

(3) protecting the cultural, natural, and historical aspects of the island, and using them to enhance the appreciation and enjoyment of them by residents, Virgin Islanders, and visitors.

(4) encouraging the creation of well-designed and functional infrastructure to serve the needs of residents and visitors.

(5) promoting a positive image of Water Island.

Vision Statement

We recognize the upcoming challenges of our environmentally finite resources, and we are, therefore, dedicated to the ecologically responsible development of a diverse, yet pristine, low-density residential community with our outstanding Caribbean quality of life.

We will strive to maintain a community where the use and distribution among residential and commercial functions is harmonious and stable, and remains balanced economically.
