The Civic Association of Palisades (CAP) is a voluntary non-profit organization whose primary purpose is to manage and improve commonly-held properties in the communities of Palisades Park, Palisades on the Severn, and Severn Landing, and to foster a heightened sense of community.
An 11-person Board (President, VP, Secretary, Treasurer and seven governors) manages the voluntary non-profit organization.
CAP owns deeds to a beach and recreation area in Palisades on the Severn; an undeveloped acre of land in Severn Landing set aside for recreational use; an unused shoreline property on Diggs Road, and various unused/unbuildable common areas.
CAP extends water privileges to all member homes, including those not actually on the water, through a shared pier, beach, boat ramp, waterside pavilion, small craft storage, and playgrounds.
Members can rent the pavilion for self-organized events near the water.
We host community activities aimed at having fun and bringing people together. Examples include a spring Easter egg hunt, 4th of July party, kids’ night out, Halloween party, and Christmas party.
Serving our members
The creation and maintenance of a water-accessible community the primary goal of CAP. We serve our members and provide a voice for our community.
Sensitive and fragile area protection
Our community firmly believes sensitive and fragile areas should be preserved and restored, particularly wetlands and steep slopes along the Severn River watershed
Active stewardship of land and waterways
The community also believes residents should assume an active role in the stewardship of the land, waterways, and community.
Goals include promotion of watershed protection on both private and CAP-owned property, through community programs such as the Master Gardener, BayWise, and Watershed Stewards.
