The goal of the LaVale Civic Improvement Association is to maintain and improve
life in LaVale through the concerted efforts of the residents and
property-owners of LaVale. We accomplish this through monthly meetings,
fund drives, and utilizing Program Open Space.
Meetings are held on the third Monday of the month in the
LaVale Library at 6:30 p.m. All residents of LaVale are members and are
encouraged to bring their interests and concerns to the attention of our
Our Fund Drive is conducted yearly in the spring by mailing donation requests to all LaVale residents. Households and businesses have supported our efforts. We greatly appreciate all donations.
The Program Open Space (POS) is a national program that provides funds for
Maryland state and local parks and conservation areas. Monies are awarded
for approved projects only after they have been paid for by the community and
only at a rate of 90% of the full cost. The 10% remaining balance is the
responsibility of the community. The procedure for applying is very detailed
and specific. For more information about POS visit
