Loch Haven Beach Party
The beach party was wonderful! Thank you to everyone who had a hand in making this event happen--and thank you to everyone who braved the heat.
We are so lucky to live in a neighborhood where "neighbor" still means something! Where we create lifelong memories for every generation at our community events like this.

Thank you to everyone who attended the June 3 informational meeting on SPECIAL COMMUNITY BENEFITS DISTRICT (SCBD) , which featured JAMES KITCHIN, ANNE ARUNDEL CO. OFFICE OF CONSTITUENT SERVICES . The Board of Directors hosted this SCBD Information meeting so that the Loch Haven residents could have an opportunity to get ALL of their questions answered and their concerns addressed pertaining to Anne Arundel County Special Community Benefits Districts. We are providing links to a copy of the guidelines that the SCBD committee is following as we work on the petition, along with the 2019 list of existing SCBD communities. If you would like to join the SCBD Committee, or have any questions, please contact Diane Quigley directly.
The Health of the South River
The annual South River Scorecard for 2018 has just been released. This report presents data on key indicators of River health such as water clarity, dissolved oxygen, underwater grasses, and the abundance of aquatic life. You can view the 2018 report and related graphics here on the website of the Arundel Rivers Federation.
State of the Bay Report
The Chesapeake Bay Foundation has released its 2018 State of the Bay Report. The results are sobering--a rating of D+, lower than last year. Extraordinary weather flushed enormous amounts of nitrogen, phosphorous, and debris—mostly from Pennsylvania, but also from other regions—off our lands and into the Bay.
