About Us


Calvert Coalition for Smart Growth was formed to monitor planning and zoning activities in Calvert County. The County has a rich history of good planning practices and is well-known throughout the United States for its Comprehensive Plans and zoning policies. Beginning with the first Comprehensive Plan adopted way back in 1974 ("The Pleasant Peninsula Plan"), County citizens, with the help of local agencies and leaders, have fought hard to maintain the rural character and exceptional quality of life of Calvert County.

We hope to continue this tradition by staying actively involved in the planning process and encouraging citizen participation as well as government agency transparency.
