Cloverly Master Plan

“Cloverly contains a variety of communities with different types of neighborhoods that include farms, rural neighborhoods, historic African-American communities, suburban subdivisions, and commercial areas set among parks and undeveloped areas that result in a generally suburban and rural appearance. The Cloverly Master Plan implements the 1993 General Plan Refinement, which identified the area as containing parts of the Agriculturally Wedge, Residential Wedge, and Suburban Communities. One of the Plan’s fundamental planning principles is to reinforce the character of Cloverly’s communities.”
