Arundel-on-the-Bay, founded in 1890, is located on the Middle Chesapeake Bay within sight of the Thomas Point Lighthouse, south of the Severn River and north of the South River, on a peninsula bounded by the Chesapeake Bay and Fishing Creek, near Annapolis, Maryland.

Some 300 households make up this diverse community, united in appreciation of the beauty of the natural environment and working to protect and improve it through the Property Owner's Association of Arundel-on-the-Bay, which administers the community special taxation district.

Passes for VisitorsWe all enjoy the beauty of the beach at Arundel on the Bay and we naturally invite our far-flung friends and family to share in those delights. To ensure that our community can sustain the special opportunity enjoyed by homeowners and their guests, the Association has launched a Visitor's Pass Program which provides each household with up to two guest passes for its visitors to our beach and our fishing,
crabbing, and boating facilities.

This new measure not only provides our community with more control over access to our shores but also gives an added layer of security. If visitors are found without a pass, they will be asked to provide one or leave the premises.

While we did not create the beach, we do work hard to maintain a clean and well-kept
environment, and we believe the new program will enhance that process. As members of this thriving community, it is important that we all do our part in protecting its pristine natural resources and achieving greater security. Passes can be obtained from Lori Strum, via
