I live (rent) in Severna Park near the water. I am a school teacher. I cannot afford much. I cannot afford the community beach memberships, but because I am a resident, my brain tells me I should have the God-given right to walk to a nearby beach to sit and watch the sunset--but nooooooooooooooooooooooo they all say no-trespassing...or all the roads end in someone's mansion driveway. I also think I should be able to hang some clothes out to dry in the summer sun without being asked by a neighboring millionaire that there is an rule against being cost-conscious and earth friendly. Oooooh sorry I Hillbillied up your bourgeois lifestyle with my redneck non-Ralph Lauren 5000 Egyptian cotton towels. Where I'm from, if it's hot and sunny out, we hung out clothes up to dry to save electricity. Not in Severna Park, Land of the Sperry Topsiders, Lexus's, and snooty mansion-living people. Eat it Severna Park. Eat it.

That is all.

Rant over.

If you think Severna Park is rich, then you haven't seen real wealth.

There are parks along the water around Annapolis, no? Drive to a waterfront park.

I agree that it's really annoying that there is such little water access in places like Severna Park and other areas along the Chesapeake Bay. It does seem to be limited to those with waterfront property and/or boats. I feel your pain.

I really don't understand the appeal of Severna Park. Sure there are some nicer mansions, but most of the housing stock is old and plain, and most of the amenities are in strip malls along Ritchie Highway.

I say move to a place where you feel more comfortable.

Well, maybe they should open up more public access spots to the water. As soon as you get around to having enough money to acquire your own house on the water, you can start petitioning the county or the state to put a public boat ramp, or a beach right next to you. Or someone else might even start the petition to put one next to you after you have spent the money to buy on the water.

I'm not being snarky here, except to point out that putting in public access can diminish the property values of people who live adjacent to them. There are places you can go to now, but you might have to travel a bit to use them. It's sort of like the same argument about buying into a nice neighborhood, only to have someone put section 8 housing in after the fact.

I really hope you don't end up in my school district in HoCo. Karma would have you teaching in Clarksville, with even more rich, privileged brats.

People pay significant amounts of money for waterfront property in AACo. Most people have worked damn hard and saved for years, and don't want their property value to drop by little miss granola air drying all the clothes all over the front yard.

I would hazard that the vast majority of residents in Severna Park neither know who you are, nor do they care of your opinions. The sooner you realize this, maybe the happier you would be.

Ha! That was funny. There are neighborhoods in SP that don't have mansions or good water access (I live in one). Maybe you just need to find a neighborhood that suits you better? In my neighborhood no one would say anything if you put a clothesline in your backyard so no one would see it from the road (as long as it was not a permanent thing). We are real people who do community garage sales and neighborhood clean ups and BBQs. And you cannot tell the people with money from the people just getting by....everyone is down to earth. Good luck finding a new place Your hood is just not a good fit for you....
