Community Areas of Concern

This is a new Section I am trying to track areas of concern in the Community.  Here is the list I have:

Standing water

  • [FIXED] Flooding on Creek drive from road and new home construction.  Working with Bob Eyster and observing the construction and how it affects the water runnoff.  As the home nears completion, we will look at the way the water flows to determine what to do next.
  • [To ADDRESS} New flooding area on Washington Drive.  New homes past Booker have been experiencing flooding in front yards as the builder never installed swales or a way for water to flow toward Booker road. We should look into this issue.
  • [FIXED] Flooding in swales between Harbor and Fishing Creek.  The swales are not in an easement that we know of.  The Fishing Creek work seems to have reduced the flooding, as the water can now drain some.  But some flooding is still an issue.
  • [FIXED] Flooding on empty lot at the top of Fishing Creek road.  The swale work has reduced the flooding somewhat.  The lot, like a couple on Arundel on the Bay road, are lower than the swales and don’t drain. Although there is not much we can do, I thought I’d list it.
  • [In progress] Flooding from Paper work (Cedar Rd) into homes along Ellis and into Ellis Road.  Will be addressed in August.
  • [FIXED] Flooding on Ellis

Community Property

  • Fishing Creek parking are and park – No current issues
  • Fishing Creek pier – Replace some missing boards and put new piling caps on (project underway)
  • Harbor Lot and play ground –  No known issues.
  • Booker Parking Lot – No known issues
  • Washington Boat ramp – Will need some sand behind the kayak rack.

Board Approvals/Motions Needed

To accomplish these, we would need to Board to approve the following:
  • No motions/approvals needed
