The land which became Hart-Miller Island State Park was aquired by the State in 1977, and with it a plan to restore Hart Island, Miller Island, and Pleasure Island, a three-island chain. Dredged material was to be pumped into an area that would be made part of the Park.

In 1981, the Hart-Miller-Pleasure Island Citizens Oversight Committee formed (Chapter 587, Acts of 1981). Initially, the Committee was charged with monitoring the redeposit of spoil and Baltimore County tributary spoil within five miles of the Hart-Miller-Pleasure Island chain in Baltimore County. The Committee also heard complaints lodged by persons affected by this material (Code Environment Article, sec. 5-1104).

Because the deposit of dredged materials was completed in 2010, and no longer required monitoring, the Committee's role changed in October 2011 (Chapters 226 & 227, Acts of 2011). Now, the Committee provides oversight and monitoring of the future development, use, and maintenance of the Hart-Miller-Pleasure Island chain, and the water quality in the area immediately surrounding the islands.

The Committee consists of eleven members appointed to two-year terms by the Governor with Senate advice and consent.
