Public workshop on downtown Chestertown’s master plan

CHESTERTOWN — A public workshop on downtown Chestertown’s master plan will be held at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 26 at the firehouse on Maple Avenue.

Main Street Chestertown and representatives from Design Collective Inc. will co-host.

Main Street Chestertown has been working with local community partners, a team of certified planners and landscape architects from Design Collective Inc., and engineers from George, Miles & Buhr LLC to create a downtown master plan.

According to a news release, the master plan will envision the future of Chestertown’s Historic District, and focus on infrastructure, streetscape, land use planning and tourism — among other priorities.

Currently working through the first phase of a three-phase planning effort, Design Collective has assessed and analyzed existing conditions, engaged with stakeholders by conducting in-person and virtual interviews, and developed pre-design priorities and options.

The public workshop on June 26 will allow Design Collective to present its findings and preliminary designs to the community.

Members of Design Collective will facilitate table discussions during which they hope to learn what community members believe are the unique characteristics of Chestertown; understand the concerns, opportunities and vision for Chestertown; and receive feedback on the preliminary design options they have drafted.

If you cannot attend the public workshop on June 26, comment cards are available at the Kent County Visitors Center, 122 N. Cross St., where Main Street Chestertown’s offices are located.

Main Street Historic Chestertown Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to preserving, enhancing and promoting historic downtown Chestertown. For more information, visit

  1. Just wondering if affordable housing and homelessness is a part of the master plan or being considered at all at tonight’s meeting?
