[ARCHIVED] Executive Gardner Launches Dynamic Approach to Long-Range Planning Called "Livable Frederick"

Frederick County Executive Jan Gardner announced a dynamic approach to long-range planning that will engage citizens in every step of the process in updating and creating the county’s Comprehensive Plan.

“I am pleased to kick-off Livable Frederick, a unique approach to vision where Frederick County wants to go, what we want to be and what our citizens value in the future,” announced Executive Gardner. “The process will be vision-focused, not zoning-driven like in years past. I have appointed a steering committee that will bring diverse perspectives, advice and ideas to the table during this two-year Comprehensive Plan process. I am grateful that Jim Racheff will serve as the chairman. This is a much more dynamic approach than ever before in the history of Frederick County. I invite everyone to join the conversation, get engaged and help shape a bright future for Frederick County.”
