Comprehensive Plan Update
The Queen Anne's County, Maryland, Department of Planning and Zoning is requesting proposals from qualified firms with experience in land use, community, and environmental planning, as well as citizen involvement/participation to craft the update of the County's 2010 Comprehensive Plan. The project is an update with the current Plan serving as a foundation. The goal is to refresh a community-based vision based upon public participation in order to promulgate a new long-range Comprehensive Plan that provides a framework and policy context within which to make decisions relating to land use and future development.
This will be an inclusive update of the Plan, which will also serve to integrate, streamline, and update plan elements that are currently appendixes to the 2010 Plan, which can be found at https://www.qac.org/486/2010-Comprehensive-Plan. It will also include updates to the 3 community plans (Chester/Stevensville, Grasonville, and Kent Narrows) which may be accessed at https://md-queenannescounty2.civicplus.com/428/Community-Plans. The updated Comprehensive Plan will comply with all provisions of the Maryland Land Use Article and will likewise incorporate recommendations and strategies from affiliated County plans where deemed appropriate.
The Comprehensive Plan will be forward-thinking and address anticipated growth in a way that preserves the quintessentially rural character of the community, its natural and cultural heritage, and environmental resources, as well as fosters economic development. Consultant services will begin with acceptance of a proposal and will be deemed complete following adoption of the 2020 Comprehensive Plan by the County Commissioners. The proposal shall contain a schedule of anticipated tasks. The 2020 Comprehensive Plan Final Draft must be completed no later than Thursday, 31 December 2020.
