The Chestertown Planning Commission is initiating an update of the Chestertown Comprehensive Plan at the upcoming July 19th meeting at Town Hall at 7 p.m. The regular meeting of the Planning Commission will begin at 7:30 p.m. All upcoming meetings of the Planning Commission will start at 7 p.m. until the review and update of the Comprehensive Plan is completed. Special meetings may be arranged as needed.

Maryland’s Land Use Article states that planning commissions have the function and duty to update their municipality’s comprehensive plan at a minimum every ten years, and to present this plan to the local legislative or governing body for its consideration and adoption. Chestertown’s Comprehensive Plan serves as a guide to public and private actions and decisions to ensure the development of public and private property in appropriate relationships. Public participation and input are vital to ensuring the implementation of the Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan consists of sections dealing with land use, housing, transportation, community facilities, mineral resources, development regulations, areas of critical state concern, sensitive areas, fisheries, implementation, development capacity analysis, municipal growth and water resources.

Public participation is strongly encouraged.
