County Council to begin months-long review of Sugarloaf preservation plan

July 26, 2022

The plan would rezone and shield from development nearly 20,000 acres between Monocacy National Battlefield and Frederick County’s border with Montgomery County.

Some Sugarloaf-area residents have said the plan gives the county too much say in how they use their land.
