Glen Isle Mosquito Control 2020
*** Spraying is now set to begin as of July 16, 2020 *** Glen Isle should see community-wide spraying on Monday evenings, between 7 pm and 2:30 am now through October.
Due to COVID-19 complications, AA County has been uncertain as to how consistent the schedule might remain.
Please be aware that Monday evenings have been designated as our target spray night, however some Mondays may be missed to lack of manpower.
Residents who wish to opt out of the spraying may file an exemption. The form can be found online at this link.
Work on finger pier has been a bit delayed for 2020 spring/summer work at Glen Isle Beach area
Hi neighbors - The Glen Isle Board is taking measures to reduce erosion at our waterfront and preserve the beach areas. To that end the board has approved the project to rehabilitate (replace) the finger pier on the North side of the boat ramp. The replacement structure will include the wavebreak features for the entire length of the pier.
This will encourage sand to accumulate upstream of the pier in front of the small beach. The new pier will also be one foot higher than the existing pier - an acknowledgement of rising mean high tides.
Work was set to begin in April and will be completed ASAP. Due to COVID-19 issues, arrangments have had to be flexible. Please exercise CAUTION around the boat ramp while the work is underway.

Glen Isle History
"Beautiful Glen Isle on the South River," that's the way the early developer (circa 1923) described this waterfront community. He also used other superlatives to entice prospective buyers such as "...rich in the traditions of the former days; convenient to Annapolis, Baltimore and Washington; noted for its sandy beaches and traditionally the home of Black Beard the Pirate."
Our original tract of 138 acres was part of a much larger grant given to the second Lord Baltimore. Subsequently, this tract was sold to a Mr. Burgess from Baltimore and then to his son-in-law, Mr. Beard. For many years the property was known as Beard's Farm.
The northernmost part of the community beach (where the cattails are located) is officially called Beard's Point and can be found on most nautical charts of the area. Our main wharf was long used by ferry boats traveling to Annapolis and by commercial fisherman. The oyster shells lying on the beach are artifacts of this bygone era.
