REMINDER TO RESIDENTS ABOUT ACCESS TO FISHING IN COLUMBIA BEACH
Fishing in the community is limited to Columbia Beach residents and guests of residents. A resident must be present with their guest or guests at all times. All non-residents and non-accompanied guests will be escorted out of the community by security without exception.
COMMUNITY PLAYGROUND, SPORTS COURT, PIERS, AND BOAT LAUNCH CLOSED
To comply with Governor Hogan's March 31 directive and County Executive Pittman's subsequent order closing all community playgrounds, the Columbia Beach sports court, playground, fishing pier, and boat launch are closed until further notice. While recreational boating has been banned, kayaking and paddle boarding are still allowed as exercise as long as physical distancing guidelines are followed.
The fishing pier is closed but residents wishing to fish from the rocks can continue to do so provided they have a current fishing license, keep what they catch (no sport fishing), and maintain physical distance. As always, access to fishing is limited to CB residents and their guests.
80TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION 2020
Due to the restrictions on large gatherings prompted by the pandemic, plans for this year's Columbia Beach Day are being revised. It is envisioned that the event will be largely virtual. The typical CB day events, including music and food at the north end of the community, will be rescheduled when conditions permit.
The CBCIA Security Committee, chaired by Brian Mead, oversees gate access for the community. To obtain gate codes or for any other inquiry regarding gate access, please contact Brian at email@example.com or 443-203-9454.

Landscaping with native plants is one way we can
