The Sugarloaf Treasured Landscape Management Plan is a long-range planning document that exists within the context of a broader planning initiative known as Livable Frederick. With the adoption of the Livable Frederick Master Plan in September 2019, Frederick County created a new framework for making strategic decisions about the County’s future. 

The Sugarloaf Treasured Landscape Plan suffers the following:

INCONSISTENT

Planning and recommendations that are inconsistent with Livable Frederick

LFC Icons White-10.png

OVERREGULATED

Unnecessary regulatory overreach throughout the planning area (proposed rezoning of parts of over 125 properties to Rural Conservation; proposed restrictive overlay on all properties) – with no grandfathering of existing uses or allowance for minor improvements

INEQUITABLE

No accommodation for preserving future mixed-use development opportunities in the economically vital I-270 Interstate Corridor, as Livable Frederick envisions

ENVIRONMENTALLY MISGUIDED

No inclusion of the new approaches for resource protection and zoning concepts offered by Stronghold, Inc. and envisioned by Livable Frederick
