The Board of County Commissioners held work sessions on June 7 and June 28, 2022 to discuss the Calvert County Comprehensive Plan, adopted in 2019. The Board directed staff to pursue amending the Comprehensive Plan to remove the Phase 2 expansion of the Prince Frederick Town Center in its entirety. In addition, the Board directed staff to remove the expansions for Huntingtown and Solomons Town Centers and reduce the area of the Lusby Town Center expansion. Staff has begun preparing the draft amendments to the Calvert County Comprehensive Plan. The amendment process is a formal process that includes opportunities for public input. Any proposed Comprehensive Plan amendments regarding the Prince Frederick Town Center that are adopted will need to be incorporated into a revised draft of the master plan.
