Eastport Traffic Study


Mayor Mike Pantelides sent the message below documenting the authorization of an Eastport Traffic Study.  When the Mayor attended our January 2015 ECA General Meeting, members of the audience mentioned congestion in Eastport and concern about the impact of proposed developments.  The ECA Board followed up with a letter to the Mayor to officially request the traffic study, which will soon begin.  The study is expected to take seven months.

Walking Safety Tips:
Protect Yourself From Criminals
A message from the Annapolis Police Department


Annapolis is a walking town. We walk to dinner, walk to the store, and walk the dog. Make sure you are walking safely, day and night.

  • Don’t be distracted. Don’t focus on your cell phone, keep your head up and remain aware of your surroundings. If you wear headphones, keep the volume down so you can hear what is going on around you.
  • Stay in well-lit areas or carry a flashlight.
  • Stay in heavily traveled areas, or carry your cell phone close at hand to make an emergency call.
  • Know who to call if something doesn’t feel right, call 9-1-1 in an emergency, but you can also the non-emergency number for the Annapolis Police Department, 410-268-4141, it is answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • Walk like you own the place. By being confident and keeping your head up you show people that you’re paying attention to what’s going on.
  • Take a friend. If you can’t take a friend, let someone know where you’re going and when you should be back.
  • Carry a whistle or other noisemaker. If you need help it will attract immediate attention and may scare a criminal off.
  • Don’t walk drunk. Drugs and alcohol affect your perception, reaction time, and judgment.
  • Don’t overload. Avoid having your hands full while walking, or be prepared to drop everything if you need to move quickly.
  • Leave your outside lights on to help your neighbors walk safely at night. Consider motion activated lights that will turn on when people need them and also alert you that someone is outside your home.

Volunteers Needed

Ad Hoc Audit and

Nominations Committees


Volunteers are needed for these two important, short term volunteer opportunities.  Volunteers or nominees are needed to serve on the Ad Hoc Audit and Nominations Committees. The work of both committees is accomplished and completed between September and November.  Committee members must be Regular Members.

Audit Committee:  The Auditing Committee shall consist of three Regular Members chosen by the Board. No officers or directors shall serve on this committee. The committee shall examine the Association’s accounts and report to the members at the Annual Meeting.  An understanding of bookkeeping and financial management are required to serve on this committee.

Nominations Committee: This is not a call to serve as a Board Member, but to serve on the Nominations Committee. The Nominating Committee is composed of three Regular Members, one of whom shall be selected by the Board of Directors from its body and two of whom shall be elected by the general membership at the September 17 Meeting prior to the November 18 Annual Meeting. The committee shall nominate one eligible individual for each position to be filled and shall report its nominees at the Annual Meeting.  

If you are interested to serve on either the Audit or Nominations Committee, or if you have questions, please send an email expressing your interest to
