Tonight! Wednesday 5/30 @ 7pm! The 2nd draft of the Comp Plan is presented.

Tonight is your first look at the 2nd draft of the Calvert County 2040 Comprehensive Plan. It will be presented Wednesday, May 30, 2018, at 7 p.m. at Calvert Pines Senior Center, 450 West Dares Beach Road, Prince Frederick. This plan guides ALL development on public and private property in Calvert.  It covers land use, transportation and traffic, how we protect environmental and natural resources, housing, economic vitality (taxes), if we have enough water resources in aquifers…

Let’s hope the Planning Commission take this 2nd draft and spend some time with it in detail. They should not be ready to forward this to public hearing with the BOCC yet. See the previous blog post from May 22, 2018 for further info.
