In 2014, recognizing that sea level rise was adversely impacting Cape St. Claire’s waterfront environment, the Cape St. Claire Improvement Association (CSCIA) began planning to protect the community’s Main Beach and Lake Claire. The project supports the creation of a 970 linear foot living shoreline and 8,000 sq. ft. tidal wetland on the shores of the Magothy River. Funding for this project has been provided through the Anne Arundel County’s Watershed Protection and Restoration Program (WPRP), Chesapeake Bay Trust (CBT), US Fish and Wildlife Service, CSCIA, and the State of Maryland through a $25,000 bond bill and $250,000 in Waterway Improvement Funds (WWIF). This important environmental initiative has broad bipartisan support from every level of government and lots of nonprofits. Governor Hogan has twice voted at the Board of Public Works to support this project.
Unfortunately, the CSCIA has learned that the WWIF allocation is being reconsidered, which would be a devastating blow to the project planned at Lake Claire. We need your support to reach out to Governor Hogan and ask him to please make good on the State’s promise to fund this project with $250,000.
