We Are Soaring to New Heights!


Livable Frederick Shapes Frederick County's Future

The state of Frederick County is strong, vibrant and on the move! Livable Frederick lays the foundation for our bright future so we can make life better for the people who call Frederick home. We’ve embraced our rich history, invested in our people and places, and taken care of our citizens. We are leading the way with innovation and excellence. Frederick County is soaring to new heights!

During today's State of the County Address, I shared a video highlighting our accomplishments from the past year. I hope you will take a few minutes to watch it and feel a sense of pride about this great place we call home. Some of the key accomplishments include:

  • Welcoming Kite Pharma’s move to Urbana, with hundreds of new jobs projected.
  • Accelerating school construction: Building has begun on a new Urbana Elementary School and a new Rock Creek School, and plans are underway for Blue Heron Elementary School, Waverley Elementary School, and an addition to Oakdale Middle School.
  • Powering up a solar array at the landfill that now provides power to seven county buildings, including charging stations for TransIT’s growing fleet of electric buses.

Excellent financial management and AAA bond ratings allowed the County to build a new Othello Regional Park in Brunswick, an expanded Utica District Park, a library in Myersville, and a major transportation project near New Market, all without raising taxes. I am excited about what we have accomplished together, and I am even more excited about what's next!

Today I unveiled the Livable Frederick Implementation Program, which will guide the county’s initiatives in the coming year. There is plenty of good news! Check out what's in store for the year ahead.
