The County's first Bikeways and Trails Plan was adopted in 1999 and included planned networks for on-street bicycle facilities and off-street/multi-use trails. The Draft Bikeways and Trails Plan proposes updates to these networks including deletions and revisions to various links and corridors. A new element in the Draft Plan proposes the concept of Complete Streets that addresses how the overall design of a street can better accommodate all users including pedestrians, cyclists, and motor vehicles.
The Plan was approved by the Frederick County Planning Commission (FCPC) on December 13, 2017. A workshop is scheduled before the County Council on June 12, 2018 at 4:30 p.m. FCPC Recommended Plan
