Ideal weather for hot air balloon flight consists of clear skies with good visibility, light winds on the surface, and moderate winds aloft (less than 25 knots at 9,000 ft above sea level). Pilots also look for good wind direction, generally winds out of the west, no cold front activity in the area, no precipitation in the forecast, and no forecast of developing windy conditions through the morning hours. Moderate temperatures also play a role as very hot temperatures affect balloon performance and safety.
Being a balloon-friendly property means allowing hot air balloons to land on your land. How will hot air balloons know that you're a balloon-friendly property? Here are a few criteria to consider:

Yes Please! We love trees in Frederick. We encourage you to plant more than the minimum required. The Town of Frederick requires a tree near the street and one in the front yard. After move in, the tree near the street is the homeowner’s responsibility. So, replant those trees. They reduce the impacts of weather (sun and wind) on your home. And who, who doesn’t love playing in the leaves?
Section 2.14 of the Land Use Code says, there shall be no less than one (1) tree in addition to the minimum required street tree within the front yard unless otherwise approved by the Town. All corner lots adjacent to a street or alley shall provide a side yard tree in addition to the required street tree, unless otherwise approved by the Town.
Need to replant a tree, check out the Frederick tree sale! Starting February 1, a variety of trees will be available for purchase, on a first come first serve basis, and can be picked up just in time for Arbor Day in April.

Cracks form in asphalt pavement through due to distress and are sealed to help protect the pavement structure. Unsealed cracks allow water to penetrate the pavement surface, which can eventually cause potholes and further deterioration.
Slurry seal is a mixture of an asphaltic oil emulsion and coarse, sandy aggregate (1/4” to 3/8” in size) applied in a single thin layer to the entire street surface.
Streets look new with slurry seals, and it helps protect the surface from moisture, contaminants, and oxidation. In addition, slurry seal application provides a new cover with improved skid resistance while extending the life of the roadway.
Yes. Per Town ordinance, it shall be unlawful for any owner or occupant of any lot, block or parcel of ground within the Town, or for any agent in charge of such property, to allow any snow or ice to accumulate or remain upon any sidewalk alongside such property longer than twenty-four (24) hours from the time of the last accretion of such snow and ice.
The street next to your street is most likely a Tier 1 or Tier 2 route. Residential streets (Tier 3) are only plowed after snowstorms that produce over eight inches of snow within one 24-hour period. Check out our Snow & Ice Control Map for more information.
Plows are designed to push snow to the side. As a result, some snow is inevitably deposited at the end of driveways and onto sidewalks. Drivers plow at low speeds (10 to 15 MPH) to minimize this issue, but the problem becomes more challenging with greater snow accumulations. The Town will not plow "curb to curb". Instead, plows will make one path down the center of the road to help avoid snow being pushed into driveway and sidewalk areas.
Per Town ordinance, you will have 24 hours after the storm ends to shovel your walks.
Unfortunately, no. With 102 center line lane miles of road in Frederick, public works crews must stay focused on opening streets for emergency vehicles. It would be extremely costly to the taxpayer for our crews to remove snow from driveways. Keep in mind that crews do not place snow intentionally in your driveways, it is just a result of the way the plow is built. The Town recommends plowing your driveways and sidewalks after Town crews are done, and the new ordinance allows for this by giving you 48 hours after a storm to shovel.
No, the Town does not plow alleys. Residents are asked to work with neighbors and contract with a private plow operator to keep alleys free of snow. Private operators need to keep in mind that snow cannot be piled on public right of ways. The Town also does not reopen access to alleys that may have snow deposited from Town plowing efforts.
Plow trucks distribute ice slicer granules early during a snow event rather than plowing snow.
Town staff determines when the downtown snow is hauled away based on the volume of snow on the ground, as that affects the main goal of keeping the emergency routes clear. This will be done early in the morning while traffic is low for safety purposes, as well as to keep interference with local business operations minimal.
Private business parking areas are not maintained by the Town.
