Our VISION and MISSION STATEMENT: We will make the Town of Indian River Shores the most livable and best-managed town by providing courteous and quality services through teamwork, innovation and a total commitment to excellence.
Incorporated on June 11, 1953, the Town of Indian River Shores is identified with its pristine beaches and controlled growth. We are one of five incorporated municipalities in Indian River County, located on the East Coast of Central Florida. The Town’s 7 square miles lie along State Road A-1-A between the Indian River Lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean, adjacent to and north of the City of Vero Beach. The County encompasses approximately 25 miles of Atlantic coastline, of which three municipalities share. The City of Vero Beach, perhaps the most widely recognized, has a portion of its corporate limits (4.5 miles) along A1A; the Town of Indian River Shores (6.25 miles) has the largest incorporated area along the coast; and the tiny Town of Orchid (less than one half mile) consists of one neighborhood! There remaining 13.5 miles is unincorporated Indian River County.
The Town of Indian River Shores consists primarily of low-density, gated residential communities. The annual estimate of the Town's population as of April 2015 is 3,995 for state revenue sharing purposes (published in January each following year). According to the 2010 Census, we have 3,901 residents enjoying our semi-tropical climate, with that figure nearly doubling during the peak season, which is roughly from October until Easter.
This unique community provides law enforcement, fire protection and emergency medical services through its well-regarded Public Safety Department, which features triple-certified officers. A Postal Center and Community Center are other services which our residents and neighbors enjoy.
We are a friendly community, with many residents donating their talents and time to serve on the Town’s Boards and Committees or to serve as a volunteer throughout Indian River County.
