Prince Frederick Volunteer Rescue Squad Company 4 Building
On Aug. 8, 2017, the county celebrated the ground breaking for a new $7.5 million building for Prince Frederick Volunteer Rescue Squad Company 4. The 23,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility is a fitting new home for those who serve in the county’s all-volunteer fire, rescue and emergency medical services.

The Board of County Commissioners will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony for the facility Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 3 p.m. To learn more, view the project video.

Named for former Calvert County commissioner and longtime animal advocate Linda Kelley, the county’s first animal shelter is scheduled to open in November 2018. Under the purview of the Department of Public Safety, the new shelter will be able to house an estimated 200 animals along with offices for the county’s Animal Shelter and Animal Control Divisions.

A new Linda L. Kelley Animal Shelter website is also under development, which will feature information on animal adoptions, community engagement, volunteer opportunities and more. Current shelter information, an overview video and a profile of Linda Kelley are available here.

New County Administration Building
Just as the county in general has grown, so have the demands from citizens for more efficient and convenient access to county services. For that reason, the Calvert County Board of County Commissioners has asked for $41.9 million in its 2018 bonding authority request to the state legislature to build a new county administration building and centralize county government services.

The new building would be located at the former Armory building in Prince Frederick and house all county government functions in one location to serve residents. Presently, there are more than 1,200 Calvert County Government employees and just under half of them are located in 11 leased facilities in Prince Frederick.

Centrally locating employees in the county seat would not only address inadequate office space and the current overcrowding in multiple leased buildings, it would also provide ease of access to county government services for citizens and return needed space back to the county court system.

Learn more about why now is the time to consolidate county staff and services into one facility.
