At their July 25, 2017 meeting, the County Council received a presentation on the Tilghman Village Master Plan, dated June 2017, by Jim Klein of Lardner/Klein Landscape Architects; the firm contracted by the County for the development of the plan. At their August 8, 2017 meeting, the Board introduced legislation to formally adopt the Tilghman Village Master Plan. A Public Hearing on the legislation is scheduled for Tuesday, September 12, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. The meeting is tentatively scheduled to be held in the Bradley Meeting Room, Courthouse, Southwing, Easton, MD. The legislation can be viewed here.

The draft of the village master plan was presented to the Talbot County Planning Commission by staff on June 6, 2017. The PC recommended (5-0) to the County Council approval of the draft Tilghman Village Master Plan and emphasized that, as strategies are implemented, the public have a full voice.

The development of the Tilghman Village Master Plan has been a 12-month process with extensive community engagement methods. A critical component to the development of the plan was the 11-member Tilghman Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) appointed by the Talbot County Council. The CAC represented a broad range of interests and their role was to identify issues and opportunities, discuss the results of two community surveys and vet and refine the plan's recommendations. Based on information provided by the CAC and through public meetings and surveys, the consultant team developed a number of goals and strategies based on key issues identified through the outreach process.

The Tilghman Village Master Plan includes recommended strategies to consider in future planning for Tilghman that can address its primary challenge: how to balance the desire for a viable working waterfront and a functioning commercial/retail street as the heart of the working waterfront village, with the desire to preserve the community's character and appearance.
