In the current Comprehensive Plan draft, Prince Frederick Town Center would grow to include existing residential subdivisions and institutional use such as the College of Southern Maryland and the Barstow Landfill that fit naturally within the town center concept. The expansion, however would not increase density or change current land use patterns.
The Prince Frederick Town Center is proposed to expand in two phases. The first phase, as outlined in the draft Comprehensive plan, would incorporate the areas currently zoned Employment Center, which has no assigned density and shares a border with the current town center and the area to the southeast zoned Residential. This would expand Prince Frederick Town Center by approximately 23 percent.
The proposed second phase would occur only after a future Comprehensive Plan update, Transportation Plan update, Zoning Ordinance update, and the Prince Frederick Town Center Master Plan update is completed. To include this phase would require formal action by the Board of County Commissioners following completion of the state-mandated Comprehensive Plan update process.
