Election Update

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

An Election Update

July 14, 2017 -- As advised within the July 16 AOTB Election Update email, our Constitution and bylaws prevented the person who received the most votes for President of our Association from assuming that office. During the Association's board meeting on July 11, subsequently elected President David Zeman respectfully declined to hold the position, citing outside obligations. Mr. Zeman offered stirring commentary about his affection for our community and offered his services to be used in other capacities moving forward.

Pursuant to the line of succession set forth in Article VIII, Section 3 of our Constitution, and others having declined to serve in the position of President, Dawn Davis assumed the office effective Tuesday, January 11.

She has been a resident of Arundel on the Bay for over 11 years. For the past two years, she has served as Secretary of the Property Owners Association of Arundel on the Bay, and commits to fulfilling the responsibilities of this new role, serving at the direction of the Association Board and in support of each community member.
