Frederick is primed to see meaningful growth over the next two decades. The Town's Planning Department has been given the go-ahead to update our Comprehensive Plan and Downtown Plan. Team FRED has begun collaborating with the Rick Planning + Design team to gather input concerning the Town's needs and opportunities. Our aim is to create an easy-to-use plan that effectively guides the growth and evolution of the community and serves as the foundation for future decisions made by the Town's Board of Trustees, other boards and commissions, and staff.
Every great project needs a catchy name and a central location for information. Therefore, we would like to introduce Frederick Forward at FrederickForward.org, the project website created for the Comprehensive Plan and Downtown Plan. Use the site to stay current and participate in plans as they progress. Starting now and throughout 2023, there will be many ways to get involved. Go to FrederickForward.org to:
1. Take a Frederick Forward Survey! Share your vision for the future of Frederick with the first community survey open now through March 17, 2023.
2. Put your ideas directly on the Frederick Forward Project Map. Share your opinions on our interactive map to help identify current challenges and opportunities in Frederick.
3. Use the virtual Frederick Forward Idea Wall. Have fun and share your thoughts by using digital sticky notes. Read comments from others, "like" and "dislike," to help us understand overall community sentiment about a topic.
It takes a whole community to establish the vision for the next 20-plus years! In fact, we need input from a wide range of stakeholders, including residents, business owners, developers, and landowners. So if you live, work, or play in the Town of Frederick, we want to hear from you!
