The Rehoboth Beach Homeowners' Association is a Delaware non-profit organization operated to promote the common good and general welfare of the homeowners and residents of the City of Rehoboth Beach for their mutual enjoyment and benefit, to preserve the quality of life, to foster the spirit of community and to provide a forum for the full and free discussion of all matters of interest.The RBHA celebrates its 50th year of service in 2021! Throughout the year, we will be highlighting the history and the members that made a difference over the last half century. Check back often.
The RBHA has created a brochure promoting safety for pedestrians, cyclists, skateboarders, joggers, etc. specifically geared toward the City of Rehoboth Beach and its particular issues and regulations. The RBPD and the Delaware State Department of Highway Safety have both contributed to the effort and have given the safety brochure a "thumbs up". Ten thousand copies were printed and are currently being distributed citywide. Keep up with our efforts on a new safety webpage here...
