Shore Acres Facilities and Amenities

Overview

The Shore Acres community is only minutes from downtown Annapolis, USNA, and the Bay Bridge with convenient access to US Route 50, MD Route 2, and MD 100. In additional to being filled with mature trees, the area also features beautiful water views and bay access that come with life on a peninsula. On top of the wonderful amenities the area generally offers, the Shore Acres Improvement Association owns and maintains a number of facilities for the pleasure of our residents, property owners, and guests.

Boat Ramp

Boat ramp access is available for members of the Shore Acres community who acquire a permit for an additional fee from the SAIA. SAIA members who own property within the Lake Placid Waterway Improvement Tax District and are suject to a dredging surcharge on their property taxes may be issued a boat ramp permit without charge. A permit is required to use the boat ramp. A permit is valid for the property owners and residents of the address associated with the permit only. A permit holder may obtain an additional key at the price of $5.00. Permits expire in May each year. You can obtain a new permit when you submit your membership form. If you need a permit after submitting your membership, please contact us here or reach out to Cyndy (410-349-0259) or Chris (410-757-4779) directly for assistance.

Starting in May 2020, the boat ramp will be accessible via PIN instead of traditional key. Every permit holder will have a PIN issued to them in order to access the ramp. The smart locks that are being installed will provide the community valuable insight into the boat ramp's usage and an additional later of security.
