About the Plan
The 2010 Frederick County Comprehensive Plan established a new community and corridor planning process for subsequent updates of the land use plan and zoning. This process replaces the region plans that have been in place since 1984 to update the land use plans and zoning. While the Frederick County Comprehensive Plan will be updated on a regular cycle of approximately 6-8 years, the preparation of individual community and corridor plans will allow for amendments to the County Comprehensive Plan. This process will also improve coordination and consistency with municipal plan updates.
