“Keep it natural. Make it native.”

On April 3, 2023, 38 citizens from various areas of Anne Arundel County, including some FQWP Board members, met at the Eastport-Annapolis Neck Library to express their vision for the future use, development, and maintenance of the Quiet Waters Park Retreat Property.

In summary, the citizens’ vision is: “Keep it natural. Make it native.” The primary, almost overwhelmingly dominant vision is to keep the Retreat Area a natural environment, with passive use, without built structures or the appearance of development.

The retreat area is envisioned as a meadow surrounded by forest, “same as today but with more native plants.” It would truly be a retreat for the urbanized residents of an increasingly congested peninsula and region of Anne Arundel County.

These findings were presented, along with other comments about the Retreat Property, during the citizens’ comment period at this evening’s County Council public meeting. Click here to view the full report.
