FREDERICK, MD – The Livable Frederick Planning & Design Office announced that the first draft of the Sugarloaf Treasured Landscape Management is now available for public review via the County website.
The Plan seeks to maintain rural character and scenic attributes, protect environmental resources, and enhance landscape quality in the Sugarloaf Mountain area. This "large area plan" begins to put into action the Livable Frederick Master Plan, Frederick County’s guiding policy document for how and where the county will grow, conserve, and preserve.
To introduce the draft Sugarloaf Treasured Landscape Management Plan to the public, the Livable Frederick Planning & Design Office will host two virtual open houses on August 17 from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM and August 19 from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM. After a brief presentation, staff will invite members of the public to offer their feedback and ask questions.

Following the open houses, the plan will be transmitted to the Planning Commission with a summary of comments received from the public and the Sugarloaf Stakeholders’ Advisory Group, which was appointed by County Executive Jan Gardner in 2020 to assist staff in the development of the draft Plan.
In September, the Planning Commission will begin their review of the Plan, which will culminate in a public hearing and a formal recommendation to the County Council. The County Council review of the Sugarloaf Treasured Landscape Management Plan will also include a public hearing.
