COVE POINT BEACH ASSOCIATION, INC. UPDATE – MAY 22, 2020

The Season Begins – With warm weather predicted and easing of some stay at home orders, we have seen an increased number of trespassers using our beaches.  In order to try to minimize any issues, we have additional temporary signs that will be used to let people know there is no public beach access here in Cove Point.  Therefore, we are asking you to use the beachfront access points for loading and unloading this weekend.  If you do leave your vehicle parked there, you must have a valid 2019 – 2020 Cove Point Beach Association issued parking sticker displayed on your windshield or rear window. Your guests should park at your property and not at the beachfront.  

Summertime Security – Our security patrols begin this weekend.  Off-duty Calvert County sheriff deputies will patrol in the evenings with a few additional hours on Monday.

Public Gatherings – The social distancing rules are still in place in Calvert County.  Therefore, groups of 10 people or more are not allowed to congregate on the beach (or elsewhere) and need stay 6 feet apart.  If you see any unlawful activity, you should call the County Sheriff’s non-emergency number at 410-535-2800.

Swimming/Wading at the Point – To ensure a safe season, please remind your family and friends not to swim or wade at and around the point due to dangerous rip currents.    

Road Safety – As the season begins, we have more children and adults walking and riding bikes on our roads.  So please remember the speed limit on Lighthouse Blvd. is 25 MPH and it’s 15 MPH and on Calvert Blvd. and the side roads.  Let’s all do our part to keep everyone safe this season.

2020 Annual Dues – Remember that dues are to be paid not later than June 1.  If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at: President@covepointbeach.com

In closing, the Board of Directors hopes everyone has a great summer and remember you might not know all of the owners and family members who are a part of our community. Let’s do our best to resolve any issues in a way that helps us remain friends and neighbors during this challenging time. 

Stay safe,

Paul Plattner
