Town Centers and Architectural Review

We are in the process of updating the Prince Frederick and Dunkirk Master Plan and Zoning Regulations.  Visit the Town Center Master Plan Update webpage for details.

Town Center Architectural Review Committees

The Board of County Commissioners has established Architectural Review Committees for each of Calvert County’s town centers (excluding North Beach and Chesapeake Beach, as they are separate municipalities with their own planning and zoning authority). All development within Town Centers requires Architectural Review.

Duties

The Architectural Review Committees review exterior design features of all structures as well as all signs within town centers in accordance with appearance standards and guidelines specified by the master plans and zoning ordinances for their respective town centers. The committees also promote awareness of good design within the community and advise the county on matters relating to appearance or design within the town centers.

The committees have the additional task of reviewing the master plans and zoning ordinances and making recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners.
