For this month, we’re getting nostalgic as w celebrate 60 years of The Caper. We have posted a few pages from that very first Caper published in 1955. Did you know that several businesses who advertised in that issue are still around today? Check out the new Caper for details on that and other things around the cold and snowy Cape St. Claire. Is it Spring yet?

Speaking of Spring, there are details on the upcoming Visit with the Easter Bunny. Grab the signup sheet within.

The February 2015 Freeze-a-thon

download_20150220_122610“Wicked cold.” That seems to be the general consensus around Cape St. Claire these last few days.

“Dangerous.”

BWI shattered the record set in 1979 with a low of 1 on February 20th, 2015. Whoa. While out and about this week, we got some snapshots of the Cape St. Claire Beaches and water off the Bay. This is a great example of when a beach does NOT look inviting.

The official start to spring is less than 28 days away

More info on the cold can be found in the Capital Gazette.

Stay warm and be safe.

Inside you’ll also find information about The Harbor School LEO Club’s generous donation to CSC Fire Department, upcoming events for the Garden Club, upcoming events from Goshen Farm, and the Youth Sailing News. Plus, some really interesting articles on some local businesses.

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.
