The Bainbridge Development Corporation (BDC) was created by the Maryland General Assembly via H.B. 1152 in 1999 to plan, initiate and oversee the activities necessary to convert the approximately 1,200 acre site (formerly the U.S. Bainbridge Naval Training Center) into re-use opportunities which would maximize the economic contribution from the re-development. The Board of Directors is comprised of 9 voting and 6 non-voting (ex-officio) members including representation from the Town of Port Deposit, Cecil County Council, State of Maryland, Economic Development Organizations, and citizens in Cecil County.



Create a community and work environment that is reflective of the highest design while maintaining the physical environment standards which are consistent with local policies and regulations.
