The Comprehensive Plan is a guide used by the Board of Trustees to make decisions about how best to facilitate new growth in the town while preserving its historic, small-town feel. The plan begins with the community’s vision for the future. This is followed by a series of broad goals, specific policies, and detailed strategies designed to achieve that vision over time.
Downtown Development Plan
The Downtown Development Plan is a tool the town uses to carry out their Comprehensive Plan. It guides development in a core downtown area. While the Comprehensive Plan is a guide for growth and development in a community, a Downtown Development Plan is able to focus on the unique aspects of the downtown area. It does this by customizing the planning process and land use regulations in that area.
Parks, Open Space & Trails Master Plan
The Parks, Open Space and Trails (P.O.S.T.) Master Plan is a tool that the town uses to carry out their Comprehensive Plan. It pinpoints the recreation needs of today's residents, and prepares for those of tomorrow. It provides a framework for creating a vibrant system of parks, open space, and trails.
Art in Public Places Master Plan
The Art Master Plan was adopted by the Board of Trustees on November 28, 2017. The plan aims to strengthen Frederick's identity by reinforcing connectivity between neighborhoods, parks and community spaces. With thoughtful art placement in key trail and infrastructure systems, town gateways and neighborhood entryways, both Frederick's cohesiveness as a town and uniqueness as a creative community will be strengthened. Ultimately, the Art Master Plan will guide the placement of art in a way that both maintains Frederick's existing values and sense of community, while continuing to strengthen its overall identity for years to come.
