Sign Regulation
At the direction of the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC), the Departments of Community Planning and Building and Economic Development hosted a forum on county signage regulations in February 2012 to provide the public with an opportunity to review current sign ordinances and offer feedback on potential changes.  Community feedback was solicited on temporary weekend signs, signs on vehicles, off-premise/directional signs, electronic signs and other outdoor advertising methods.

As part of the sign regulation review effort, an ad hoc committee of business owners, citizens groups, members of county appointed boards and commissions and residents met on a regular basis through 2012 and 2013 to study the issues further and develop a set of proposed changes.  The Ad Hoc Committee last met on February 23, 2015.  The link below is  a first draft of the proposed sign regulations.  The draft regulations are  expected to change via the public input process.  Feedback will be accepted throughout the public meeting process.  

Survey on Draft Signage Regulations
As Calvert County Government considers draft signage regulations, county residents and business owners can offer input on the issue through a survey open now through April 22. The short survey allows residents and business owners to evaluate details such as sign heights, electronic signs and temporary signs. Survey results will be considered as the draft regulations are finalized. Visit here to take the survey.

Public Meetings on Sign Regulations
- Three public meetings were held to provide information about the proposed changes and to gather public input on the draft sign regulations. Meetings were held in the north, south, and central areas of the county, at Huntingtown High School on March 25, 2015, at Patuxent High School on March 26, 2015, and at Calvert High School on April 8, 2015. Public comments were accepted at the meetings and will continue to be accepted through April 22, 2015. The comment period was extended from April 15, 2015 by one week.
