New zoning changes in affect

Some homeowners in Maryland might benefit from learning more about how recent zoning changes may affect those involved in retirement or recreation. Two amendments to the Solomons Town Center and Calvert County zoning ordinances were approved on July 15. One amendment under consideration calls for adding the Employment Center to places that allow indoor commercial recreational facilities. The amendment allowing indoor recreational facilities in the EC is to be conditional. Indoor recreational facilities were previously designated to the Rural Commercial District, and with special permission, the Town Center zoning subareas as well.
