[ARCHIVED] County Executive Gardner Proposes Legislation to Manage Impact of Residential Growth

County Executive Jan Gardner provided information on residential growth in Frederick County. Her public information briefing covered the residential growth that is coming based on approvals by the prior administration, defined the impact on roads and schools and the cost to build needed roads and schools, and outlined what her next steps will be.

“I, along with every taxpayer in Frederick County, was dealt a bad hand by the prior administration, who signed 14 contracts with developers that will create severe school overcrowding and traffic congestion in the New Market, Monrovia and Urbana areas,” Executive Gardner said. “At the same time, the Board of County Commissioners weakened the laws that required developers to pay for the necessary infrastructure. I believe new development should pay for itself. The last board shifted the cost of development primarily to the taxpayers.”
