About Us

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.


Membership Benefits
  • 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.

  • Community education

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.
