Chesapeake Bay Trust gives $298,868 to Cape St. Claire, among others

Cape St. Claire would love to thank Chesapeake Bay Trust and Anne Arundel County Watershed Protection and Restoration Program for our $298,868 grant to help rebuild our main beach. Announced today, this collective group awarded $1,117,528 in grants for 6 projects throughout Anne Arundel County.

We’d like to thank Lisa Schmidt, Cape St. Claire Improvement Association boardmember, for attending the announcement today, which was held at another awardee, Herrington Harbour’s location. CSCIA would also like to thank our partners, Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay and Biohabitats for helping us get this grant.

For more information on what we’re proposing to do with the main beach and a timeline of events, please see our webpage here. Here’s a link to the announcement article on eyeonannapolis.net.

Playground Upgrades

[one]

As a community, from time to time, we have to replace our existing equipment. For those that haven’t noticed, the playground at Deep Creek and the Main Beach are looking a little rough. They are aging and need to be replaced. We thought it would be a great idea to ask the community what they thought. Below are the two poll pages to vote on your favorite playground design. You can only vote once so make it count!

The July/August Caper is now online!

2015, The Caper - 07 - July-Aug_Page_01Double issues of things always signify that they’re taking a little time off. Mary works hard, we think she’s allowed. The best part about this issue though is that it is in full color. Full color issues of The Caper are awesome. We think that you’ll agree with that sentiment.

As always, The Presidential message is spot on and discusses The July 4th parade and BBQ cook off. If you didn’t get a chance to find out who the winner was, now is your opportunity. A big heartfelt thanks is given to all of the volunteers who made our rainy day event a great one. As always, don’t forget to display your CSCIA stickers on your car. We don’t like to tow people and we’re sure you don’t like to be towed.

There are full color images from the Strawberry Festival, which as mentioned before, was an outstanding event. There are updates on the Cape St. Claire road improvement project which is really gaining momentum. The Board Committee reports from the past month really highlight the dedication of the Board on improving The Cape.

There are details on entering The Cape St. Claire Calendar Photo contest so be sure to grab your best photo and enter it! There’s a great update from the Cape Conservation Corps, Garden Club, and Goshen Farms. Also, there’s a Goshen Farm wine tasting benefit, sponsored by Bella’s Liquors, coming up. Details inside!

Cape Cleanup is coming on October 2nd and 3rd so mark your calendars! More details on how Anne Arundel County is helping to clean up our community are found in this issue.

Don’t forget, the quarterly meeting is coming up. July 28th, 7:30 in the clubhouse! We hope to see you there.

Have a great rest of the summer. See you around the Cape!

Cape St. Claire Road Widening and Water Main Installation

CSC_Roadwork_Update_12-01-2014_Page_1UPDATE December 1st – The construction work has encountered additional unforeseen underground utilities that require redesign of some work elements. The project will be put on hold over the winter, as repaving after the waterline installation will not be realistic. Work is to resume in full force once the weather breaks in the Spring.

Anne Arundel County will widen CSC road between Woodland Circle and Hilltop Drive. The project is to begin in late March. Here’s what’s included in this project:

  • The addition of shoulders, curb and gutter, and storm drainage.
  • A 5-foot wide sidewalk will be added on the eastern side of Cape Saint Claire Road.
  • An 8-foot wide hiker-biker trail will be added on the west side.
  • The hiker-biker trail will connect with the Cross-County Connector Trail to the south.
  • The traffic signal at the fire station will be upgraded.
  • Provisions for a future signal will be provided at the intersection of Cape Saint Claire Road and Hilltop Road. The signal is not included in this project.
