One of the first lessons a student is taught before they can become a REALTOR® is the definition of “Bundle of Rights”. When purchasing real estate you receive the right of possession, control, exclusion, enjoyment/profit, and disposition. Property rights are protected by the constitution but are also subject to statutory codes determined by individual States. The land use decision and planning process entails a delicate balancing of interests. The decision makers need to consider significant impacts and alternative mitigation measures. Currently, the Frederick County Planning Commission draft of the Sugarloaf Treasured Landscape Management Plan is out of step with and unrepresentative of the Livable Frederick Master Plan.
