CA Annual Charge Keeping Columbia Cool by the Pool

Last month was unbelievably hot here in Maryland, and temperatures pushed the triple digits on more than one occasion. This is a time when having access to a cool, clean and refreshing swimming pool is most welcome. Part of the fee that Columbia residents pay annually enables them to receive discounted admission and membership to the 23 Columbia Association (CA) outdoor pools.

This is just one of the many ways that the CA annual charge is used to benefit Columbia and its residents. The assessment fee that property owners on CA-assessed land pay each year was part of the initial planning of Columbia. The goal was for Columbia to be a self-sustaining city, maintaining the community centers, walking and biking pathways, open spaces and ecological beauty of Columbia.
