Long-term, community sustainability is not achievable without the investment and collaborative spirit of residents, businesses, schools, volunteer groups, non-profits, and government agencies. There are simply too many roles for 1 individual or organization to fill; a community-wide commitment is needed to make substantial contributions toward our goals.
In order to engage the community and learn from the diversity of voices present in Frederick County, the County established the Sustainability Commission in 2009. The commission provides a community-based perspective on issues related to sustainability and guides the development of a Frederick County Sustainability Plan.
