Public Comments Sought For First Draft of Land Preservation, Parks and Recreation Plan

The Calvert County Planning Commission and the Calvert County Departments of Planning and Zoning and Parks & Recreation are seeking public comment on the first draft of the updated Calvert County Land Preservation, Parks and Recreation Plan (LPPRP). A public meeting is scheduled in December for residents to review the draft and ask questions.

The LPPRP guides land conservation and development of outdoor recreation opportunities over the next five years. The LPPRP aims to:

• Provide Calvert County's citizens and visitors with safe and easily accessible amenities;
• Encourage the enjoyment and stewardship of Maryland’s natural world; and
• Balance outdoor recreation land use with natural and cultural resource protection.

It also serves as the basis for the Calvert County Program Open Space Annual Program and qualifies the county to receive Program Open Space funding from the state.
Residents are encouraged to attend the Dec. 5, meeting at the Harriet E. Brown Community Center located at 901 Dares Beach Road. Doors will open at 6 p.m. for those who want to talk with staff, and a presentation will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Comments can be submitted during the public meeting, or in writing by U.S. mail or email no later than Dec. 15, 2017. Submit comments via mail by mailing 150 Main St., Suite 300, Prince Frederick, MD 20678, or via email at Review the LPPRP draft online at the link provided below.
