The Calvert County Planning & Zoning office is in the process of updating the Prince Frederick Town Center Master Plan and Zoning Regulations.   The Calvert County Board of County Commissioners adopted The Prince Frederick Master Plan and Zoning Ordinance originally in 1989. 

These planning efforts are initiated through respective planning departments and planning boards for each county. Close coordination between the county and the Planning Commission is essential to ensure that current and future county government needs are addressed. The Department of Planning & Zoning coordinates review and commentary on master plans on behalf of the Planning Commission and Board of County Commissioners.
