[ARCHIVED] Frederick Transportation Survey Update

The Town of Frederick has been diligently gathering public input on a possible 1% sales tax proposal to address our community’s highest priority transportation needs, including: 

  • Relieving traffic congestion
  • Better maintaining potholes year-round
  • Enhancing snow removal
  • Adding pedestrian- and bike-friendly connections

According to a recent survey and community engagements, a large percentage of Frederick residents would like to see the Town move forward with a sales tax measure this fall to address unmet transportation needs. However, there are also many residents who responded with heartfelt concern about rapidly rising home values and ongoing cost-of-living challenges.  

After numerous meaningful discussions and careful consideration of the economic challenges facing many of our residents, the Board has decided not to pursue a new sales tax measure. 

The Board remains fully committed to preserving Frederick's transportation assets with an approach that prioritizes the quality of life and well-being of our residents. The Town will persist in strategic and efficient budgeting to enhance core services and make steady progress toward improvements. 

Your valuable input has been crucial in shaping the Boards decision. We encourage you to stay engaged as we move forward in addressing our transportation needs. Get the full story and read the survey results!
