Livable Frederick Coalition Formed

May 31, 2022

A citizens group called the Livable Frederick Coalition has been formed in opposition to the proposed Sugarloaf Treasured Landscape Management Plan. That document calls for rezoning almost 20,000 acres from the Monocacy National Battlefield to the border with Montgomery County to prevent it from being developed. “They downzoned almost 20,000 acres of land, removed some employment and commercial zoning on the west side of I-270 at Maryland 80,” says Rick Weldon, President and CEO of the Frederick County Chamber of Commerce. “Something like 600 acres that could be used for jobs and economic opportunity.”
