About the Plan
In May 2004 the Frederick County Board of County Commissioners voted to adopt the Catoctin Mountain Scenic Byway corridor Management Plan, culminating a 2-year effort working with a consultant and a citizens advisory committee. In September 2005, the Federal Highway Administration named the Catoctin Mountain Scenic Byway as a National Scenic Byway.

This designation does not apply any regulations or restrictions on land use or development along the U.S. 15 corridor. It does allow the county, municipalities, or private/non-profit organizations to apply for federal grants that would help to promote, maintain, and enhance the Catoctin Mountain Scenic Byway.
