COVE POINT BEACH ASSOCIATION UPDATE – MAY 24, 2021

Spring Association Meeting – We held our virtual meeting this past Saturday, May 22; highlights are summarized below. 

Beach Cleanup – Thanks to board member Allison Haines and a group of volunteers for cleaning the beach and walkways.  Everything looks great!

New Beach Signage – New beach rules signs have been installed at all beach entrances.  And again this year, we are using the “no public beach access” blue yard signs in an effort to keep out trespassers.

Summertime Security – Our daytime weekend security patrols start on Memorial Day weekend and run through Labor Day weekend.  One of the purposes of having off-duty Calvert County sheriff’s deputies patrol the community beach is to assist in dealing with trespassers.  As a related reminder, there is no guest parking permitted at the beach entrances including at the gate to the north beach.

Speeding – New “slow down – 15 mph” signs have been installed on Calvert Blvd.  Please drive slowly on all of our roads as we have more families and children in the area this time of year.  We had several close calls last year, so keep your speed down…it also keeps the dust down.

No Swimming at the Point – Please remind your family and guests that swimming is prohibited at the Point due to the deadly rip current…this is a Calvert County regulation.  At least 5 drownings have occurred over the years and several near drownings.

Road Work – In addition to the annual pothole and apron repair work, we will be focusing on roads north of Lighthouse Blvd.  We expect work to begin in the next 30 – 45 days, depending on weather. 

New Fence Regulations – At Saturday’s Association meeting, the membership approved, by a wide margin, the proposed regulations, which spell out long-standing Association policies.  You will be able to find this and all other rules and regulations on our website covepointbeach.com under the Association > Documents menu.

2021 Annual Association Dues – If you have not yet paid your dues, please do so; the deadline is June 1.  Thanks to all of you who have already paid.

Board of Directors Election – There are four seats on the Board that will be vacated in August.  If you are interested in serving, please contact Larry Hultberg at VP@covepointbeach.com

Next Association Meeting – Our next meeting will be held in-person on August 28.  We are also planning a social event later that afternoon.  More details to follow in July. 

Regards,
