Calvert County Department of Planning & Zoning to Hold Workshops for the Calvert County Transportation Plan

News Release, Calvert County Government

PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – March 19, 2019 – The Calvert County Department of Planning & Zoning is holding three public workshops as part of an effort to update the Calvert County Transportation Plan. The process will set a vision to integrate multimodal transportation planning with land use, historic preservation, open space and community facilities.

The first workshop on Tuesday, April 2, will feature a review of the plan and a discussion of current county transportation conditions with transportation plan consultants Sabra & Associates. Small group exercises will prioritize specific locations of concern and explore potential solutions by considering cost, environmental impacts and overall community benefit. The event will be held at Calvert Middle School, 655 Chesapeake Blvd., Prince Frederick, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Additional public workshops are scheduled for Monday, May 6 and Tuesday, June 4, with topics to be identified closer to the workshop dates. The Department of Planning & Zoning will seek public input following the release of the first draft of the new plan.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
