The County is working to develop and establish county-wide guidance for the application of complete and green street components based on location and context. This Plan stems from recently adopted policies and was a goal set forth in the Livable Frederick Master Plan. The Division of Planning and Permitting worked to implement the Plan in coordination with consultant JMT, and in cooperation with numerous other County divisions in its development.
The purpose of the Plan is to provide a decision-making framework that can be used by planners, designers, and engineers to incorporate different roadway design components for more a inclusive, equitable, and sustainable transportation network. As areas within the County continue to grow, the transportation network must evolve to accommodate the changing needs of the community.
This is not the final step, but following the guidance in the Plan will make Frederick County streets safer. And that is the ultimate goal: safe, Complete, and Green Streets for everyone.
