Restoration of Spa Creek headwaters is mired in all kinds of City of Annapolis requirements for bordering property sign-offs for Right of Entry and Easements for maintenance.
Letters to residents with property bordering the project have been mailed along with the required consentent forms, which must be signed and returned before the work can start.
The Corps of Engineers has approved, Maryland Department of the Environment Tidal and Non-Tidal are on board and waiting for City to approve.
There are no major design issues with implementation, except the tidal interchange area near the Chesapeake Children’s Museum where the DNR restricts dredging of phragmites from mid-March to June due to fishery issues.
All but one effected neighbor has sign off on minor flood plain increases. Hopefully construction will begin in early summer and be complete by end of year.
