Prince Frederick Town Center Master Plan 

(July 2021 Draft)

 The Calvert County Planning & Zoning Department, on behalf of the Calvert County Planning Commission, has prepared a draft updated master plan (click on link below to review draft) for the Prince Frederick Town Center.

 The adoption process has multiple steps.

  • The Planning Commission will prepare a “Recommended Plan” and hold a public hearing to receive comments on its “Recommended Plan”.
  • The “Recommended Plan” will be distributed to state and regional agencies for review at least 60 days prior to the public hearing.
  • Agencies and members of the public can submit written comments prior to the public hearing and can give oral comments and submit written comments at the public hearing.
  • The Planning Commission will review and consider comments on the “Recommended Plan”.
  • The Planning Commission will prepare and vote on its “Approved Plan”.
  • The Planning Commission will forward its “Approved Plan” to the Board of County Commissioners for consideration.
  • The Board will hold a public hearing on the plan where agencies and the public can submit written comments prior to the public hearing and can give oral comments and submit written comments on the proposed plan at the public hearing.
  • The Board can adopt the plan, modify the plan, remand the plan back to the Planning Commission, or disapprove the plan.
