The Association held monthly meetings concerned with issues such as taxes, sewers, street signs and sidewalks. The Association presented the interests of stakeholders to local government. Meetings were attended by representatives of UCSB and the county government. In 1967, the Isla Vista Improvement Association merged with the Isla Vista Homeowners Association to form the Isla Vista Association.
