Here's a two page summary of fund raising work that the NECA Shoreline Committee has undertaken on behalf

of the community to restore and protect our shoreline.

NECA Shoreline Project Flyer_digital_F (2)-2.jpg

On 2 December 2021, NECA submitted a proposal to request a $35K grant from the Chesapeake Bay Trust (CBT) Watershed Assistance Grant Program.  

 

Here is CBT's Request for Proposal (RFP).

Here is the proposal the Shoreline Committee submitted in response to the RFP.  Our proposal included a seven page narrative section that addressed 11 specific RFP requirements. 

Attachment B includes several letters of support for the project, including but not limited to one signed by our State Senator and another signed by all five members of the Calvert County Board of County Commissioners.  

Attachment C includes the Breezy Point/Neeld Estate Flood Mitigation Plan published December 2016 by Calvert County Department of Planning AND a variety of pictures depicting our shoreline erosion problem.  

Attachment D includes information regarding Coastal Design, P.C. 's credentials/qualifications, including a 30 page presentation of other Chesapeake Bay and river projects that are similar in nature to our project.

 NECA PROPOSAL FOR MD DNR CHESAPEAKE & COASTAL GRANT 

On 2 December 2021, NECA submitted a proposal to request a $35K grant from the Chesapeake Bay Trust (CBT) Watershed Assistance Grant Program.  

 

Here is CBT's Request for Proposal (RFP).

Here is the proposal the Shoreline Committee submitted in response to the RFP.  Our proposal included a seven page narrative section that addressed 11 specific RFP requirements. 

Additionally our proposal included seven attachments with supporting information.

Each attachment is referenced at different points in our narrative proposal.

 

The first attachment is a transmittal letter from NECA President, Eve Shoemaker.

The second attachment includes several letters of support for the project, including letters signed by our State Senator, our State House Delegate, all five members of the Calvert County Board of County Commissioners and a Calvert County Environmental Planning Regulator.

The third attachment is composed of four attachments (1A, 1B, 1C and 1D).  1A includes a variety of pictures depicting our shoreline erosion problem. 1B includes the Breezy Point/Neeld Estate Flood Mitigation Plan published December 2016 by Calvert County Department of Planning. 1C is a map highlighting the floor-prone area of our neighborhood. 1D is what DNR calls the "Homeowners Association (HOA)/Community Land Project Authorization."  This is required to demonstrate that the community, in accordance with our governing rules and regulations, has granted permission to move forward with our proposed project on community or other shared land.

The fourth attachment (2A) includes two figures.  Figure 1 depicts the site of our project. 

Figure 2 is the concept sketch of our proposed design solution.

 

 

The fifth attachment (2B) is composed of four attachments (2B-1, 2B-2, 2B-3 and 2B-4).  2B-1 is a journal article co-authored by Scott Hardaway.  He is President of Coastline Design, P.C., the company that will perform the design effort should NECA receive either of the two grants. 
2B-2 is a presentation on the subject of living shorelines prepared/delivered by Scott Hardaway.  This presentation includes many examples (with pictures and schematics) of relevant bay and river shoreline projects. 
2B-3 provides a resume and presentation (the latter includes lots of pictures of relevant projects) that demonstrates Scott Hardaway's and Coastline Design, P.C.'s qualifications.  2B-4 provides the proposal that Coastline Design, P.C. delivered to the Shoreline Committee in May 2021. 

This proposal represents the foundation of our two grant proposals, i.e., the work that will be performed should we receive either of the two grants.   

The sixth attachment (2C) is identical to attachment 1D provided above.

The seventh attachment (2D) is identical to attachment 1A provided above.

 OTHER INFO RELEVANT TO OUR SHORELINE PROJECT 

Here's a journal article co-authored by Scott Hardaway, president of the company (Coastal Design, P.C.) that will perform the design phase effort should we be awarded either of the two grants.  The article addresses the subject of headland-breakwater systems along the shore of the Chesapeake Bay.  Since this is one of the erosion mitigation techniques that Scott plans to incorporate in our shoreline restoration/protection solution, this article should further your understanding of why this technique makes sense for us and how it works.
