Comprehensive Plan Update and Zoning Ordinance Rewrite

We are planning for the future!Logo CPZO

We have embarked on a two-year process to plan the future of Calvert County. From transportation, economic development and public safety to recreation, natural resources and housing – we want to know your vision for our future. All this will be laid out in the Comprehensive Plan update and Zoning Ordinance rewrite process.

The informational meetings have been held and the workshops are now underway!
Staff provided four overview presentations of the update and rewrite process in late July and early August 2016. The public was invited to attend, ask questions and provide feedback.

The workshops offer highly interactive opportunities for participants to hear from each other and for the comprehensive plan and zoning ordinance team to hear from our citizens in facilitated small group discussions. They will be structured to allow broad discussion of focus topics and also to accommodate separate discussion of zoning issues. 

Join us on one of the workshop dates below and let us know what you think about our vision for economic vitality, tourism and recreational opportunities, preserving our rural landscape, bringing growth and vibrancy to our town centers and maintaining or enhancing Calvert County’s way of life.

Four workshops are scheduled.
  • Wednesday, Sept. 28, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Dunkirk Volunteer Fire Department, 3170 West Ward Road, Dunkirk
  • Thursday, Sept. 29, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Solomons Volunteer Rescue & Fire Department, 13150 H.G. Trueman Road, Solomons
  • Thursday, Sept. 29, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Calvert High School, 520 Fox Run Blvd., Prince Frederick
  • Monday, Oct. 17, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Calvert Marine Museum, 14200 Solomons Island Road, Solomons

Doors will open 30 minutes before each meeting for an open house. Maps, graphs, and other information will be on display. Staff will be available to answer questions during the open houses and after each workshop.
