Spring is Springing
Spring starts on March 19 and the weather is warming. And there are a few items that we’d like to bring to everyone’s attention here at Chesapeake Station.
Please remember that dogs must be leashed at all times while outdoors. This is a courtesy to others, a County law, and a rule of our Association. There’s nothing more disconcerting than walking your dog and having an unleashed dog come bounding up to check out your pet, twisting up your leash, tripping you, and frightening everyone. All the while hearing the other owner yell “Spot, don’t do that!” As if Spot is listening. Please be considerate!
Our Townhouse parking lots are looking a little worn and tired and the Board has decided to contract with a paving company to fill cracks, seal, and re-stripe the lots. We’re waiting for the weather to warm up further and don’t have a date yet for the work. But be on the lookout. The lots will need to be vacated of all vehicles for approximately 3 days when the work is done. The Board will notify everyone when we are scheduled.
As the weather warms, some of you may be considering renewal and repair projects on your property. Remember that, per our Governing Documents, plans for any work on the outside of your home must be submitted to the HOA Architecture Committee for review and approval before you start. This includes landscaping and work on the structure. The application form can be found on our website here.
We want to thank Chesapeake Station residents for participating in the 2019 “Door or More” decorating event that successfully made our neighborhood look beautiful and very festive. Thank you all for all your hard work! And now we would like to acknowledge the following awards:
Spirit of Christmas – Charlie Pritchart

Beach Theme – Bill and Elizabeth Leebel
And Special Acknowledgements for Holiday Lighting to:
Keith and Debbie Belhumeur
Jim, Lois and Abundance Boekestein
Thanks for a job well done and have a wonderful 2020!
I don’t know if the fox population in the beaches is increasing but we’ve been hearing reports of more sightings than in the past. A Chesapeake Station resident recently reported seeing a fox on C St. See the video here. Foxes are opportunistic feeders and it’s important that you keep your trash containers well secured. Although cat is not their first choice, they will attack cats if hungry enough or threatened. So also keep your fur babies indoors.
…from the Social Committee.
Decorate your door or more. Judging for the decorating contest will be on Thursday, Dec. 19th, so let’s make Chesapeake Station a Christmas Village.
