Town Centers and Architectural Review

Town Center Architectural Review Committees

The Board of County Commissioners has established Architectural Review Committees for each of Calvert County's town centers (excluding North Beach and Chesapeake Beach, as they are separate municipalities with their own planning and zoning authority). All development within Town Centers requires Architectural Review.


The Architectural Review Committees review exterior design features of all structures as well as all signs within town centers in accordance with appearance standards and guidelines specified by the master plans and zoning ordinances for their respective town centers. The committees also promote awareness of good design within the community and advise the county on matters relating to appearance or design within the town centers.

The committees have the additional task of reviewing the master plans and zoning ordinances and making recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners.

The Solomons Architectural Review Committee meeting scheduled for Monday, November 4, 2019, has been rescheduled to Monday, November 18, 2019.  Meeting time and location will remain the same.  The agenda will be posted on November 12, 2019.

The Prince Frederick Architectural Review Committee meeting scheduled for Monday, November 11, 2019. has been rescheduled to Monday, November 18, 2019, due to the Veterans Day holiday.
