Council considers new development criteria, ‘private park’ designation for Sugarloaf plan

August 31, 2022

Frederick County planners on Tuesday presented the County Council with two bills to accompany a plan to preserve Sugarloaf Mountain and its surrounding area. One bill would add development criteria and procedures from the Sugarloaf Treasured Landscape Management Plan overlay district to the county’s code. The overlay district covers nearly the entire 20,000-acre plan area, including Sugarloaf Mountain. The other bill would establish a “private park” use classification in the county’s code to let Stronghold, the nonprofit owner of Sugarloaf Mountain, request to add resources and facilities to the mountain if the plan passes.
