About the BQIA......

In 1938, with concern over the increasing year round population and development on the peninsula, the Bowleys Quarters Improvement Association (BQIA) was incorporated by a group of property owners. Its hope was “to promote and assure consented activity in all matters pertaining to the proper development; improvement; and maintenance of that portion of Baltimore County known as Bowleys Quarters and vicinity thereof”. Since 1938, the BQIA has been actively addressing water and sewerage issues, population growth, zoning, development, watershed protection, Martin State Airport noise and traffic, road and drainage maintenance, public services, air and water quality, and any issues that may impact the integrity of the area. All on a volunteer basis. We invite you to join us at one of our monthly meetings and get involved in our community. 

Next Meeting:   June 13, 2024 @7PM

Paul Brylske, President of Friends of Hart and Miller Island will provide a brief history and overview of Hart Miller Island, with special focus on the amenities which are currently offered at the State Park. Clarification and questions around the recent legislation to allow for additional dredge material from the Tradepoint Atlantic project will be addressed. Park Ranger Robin Reed will also be there! 

BQIA Elections for Executive Board and Officers will also take place.
