Dan Kavanagh Memorial Fund

Help us celebrate Dan’s life, commitment to public service, and love of the outdoors by supporting what he often referred to as his greatest accomplishment as a public servant, the formation of the Middle Peninsula Chesapeake Bay Public Access Authority. Dan spent most of his professional career at the Middle Peninsula Planning District Commission, and under his watch in 2003, the Middle Peninsula Chesapeake Bay Public Access Authority (PAA) was born. The PAA was created by the Virginia General Assembly for the express purpose of providing public water recreational opportunities to the citizens of the Middle Peninsula, the Commonwealth of Virginia and beyond. Much of the early work was in acquiring and offering for public enjoyment new public land on the Dragon Run, a pristine Bald Cyprus swamp meandering between Essex, King and Queen, Middlesex and Gloucester counties. Today the PAA manages just under 1,000 acres of waterfront properties across the Middle Peninsula. Help celebrate Dan’s accomplishments by supporting the Public Access Authority.
