2017 Village Election Rules
Long Reach is the largest and one of the oldest of 10 villages that make up the new town of Columbia, Maryland. Our village comprises four neighborhoods: Jeffers Hill, Kendall Ridge, Locust Park and Phelps Luck. From our start in 1971, we have grown to more than 17,000 people living in 6,108 households.
Long Reach Community Association is the nonprofit organization that governs and represents our village. Both property owners and residents of Long Reach are members of the Association and elect a five-member Village Board and council representative to the Columbia Board of Directors. A small staff and many volunteers conduct the daily business of the Association at Stonehouse, our community center in the Long Reach Village Center. The Columbia assessment contributes about one-third of our funding and our own activities generate the remaining two-thirds.
The Village Board meets on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at 7:30 p.m., at Stonehouse. The Resident Architectural Committee (RAC) reviews Exterior Alteration Applications every other week on Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. Your attendance at all community meetings is not only welcome but encouraged.
New residents of Long Reach are urged to stop by Stonehouse and pick up a helpful Newcomers’ Packet with a variety of information on Long Reach, Columbia and Howard County. Exterior Alteration Applications can be faxed to Stonehouse and we are always pleased to receive resident comments by letter, phone or e-mail.
Our village newsletter, Reach Out, is mailed to each household in Long Reach every six weeks. If you are not receiving Reach Out, please call and let us know.
