Honor Garden in Jamesport 

About Us

The Greater Jamesport Civic Association was established in 1948 as the Jamesport-South Jamesport Civic Association, however our membership and representation covers a significant portion of the North Fork, including Aquebogue, Jamesport, South Jamesport and the portion of Laurel that is within the Town of Riverhead.  We offer members:

  • A stronger voice and greater momentum to address community concerns.

  • A conduit to elected and appointed officials within the Town of Riverhead, Suffolk County and New York State, and to our federal government representatives. 

  • A commitment to uphold the safety and beauty of our hamlets and to foster a strong sense of community within.

  • Educational and informational sessions on matters of importance to our North Fork communities, ranging from regulatory and legislative issues to health and environmental concerns.

  • Affiliation with an established and well-respected community organization.

Our Priorities


A Delicate Balance

The Greater Jamesport Civic Association celebrates the rich history, strong rural and agricultural heritage, and precious natural environment of the North Fork. We seek to work with elected officials, businesses and members of our community to facilitate prudent management of growth to maintain a balance between economic development and preserving those qualities that make the North Fork of Long Island special.
