News Release, Calvert County Public Information Office

PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – Aug. 2, 2019 – The Calvert County Department of Planning & Zoning is holding a public workshop on Tuesday, Aug. 14 from 6:30-8 p.m. as part of an effort to update the Calvert County Transportation Plan.

The workshop will be held at the College of Southern Maryland, Prince Frederick Campus, John E. Harms Academic Services Building (Building A), Room 119, located at 115 J. W. Williams Road in Prince Frederick.

Consultant firm Sabra & Associates will present its analysis of traffic generated by the proposed Comprehensive Plan under various build-out scenarios, roadway alternatives to manage additional traffic if necessary and an outline of the recommended transportation plan. The consultant will use the feedback from this workshop to complete the second draft.

The full draft of the proposed Calvert County Transportation Plan is expected to be released on or about Aug. 19, 2019. The transportation plan is an update to the plan adopted in 1997 and will set a vision to integrate multimodal transportation planning with land use, historic preservation, open space, and community facilities.

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 [email protected]

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
