Strategic Plan Focuses on 5 Key Priorities

Schools. Jobs. Seniors. Community Needs. Growth. We will focus on key initiatives in these five priority areas to ensure our high quality of life and economic prosperity. Frederick County is poised for the future.


We have exceptional schools, a safe community, a thriving economy with thousands of new jobs over the past few years, and a high quality of life that is the envy of mid-size communities around the country. Our challenge is to protect what we love about Frederick County, seize our opportunities, and embrace new ideas and innovation.


In February, I held a leadership conference with community leaders to review what we had accomplished in the past four years, identify issues, and brainstorm ideas to support the five priorities. This input is at the heart of the strategic plan. Our process was guided by the shared community vision of Leadership Frederick, a vision of great places to live, a high quality of life, and a healthy environment for years to come.
