RE:  Development Rights and Responsibilities Agreement (DRRA) report and survey from the Maryland Department of Planning in response to a League of Women Voters of Frederick County study of this planning tool in Frederick County

CONTACT:   Melanie Cox, President, 301-662-3695


The League of Women Voters of Frederick County (LWVFC) has been studying Development Rights and Responsibilities Agreements (DRRAs) in Frederick County and statewide. While our study is not complete, the League has been approached today to release the public documents provided to us by the Maryland Department of Planning on the status of DRRAs in Maryland.

The League of Women Voters of Frederick County believes it is in the best interest of the citizens of Frederick County to release this information to all candidates for County Executive, County Council, and the Maryland General Assembly for Frederick County given the importance of DRRAs in the upcoming election, related to growth in Frederick County and the procedures and processes of how DRRAs are reviewed under the new Charter government that becomes effective in December 2014.

The LWVFC’s mission is to promote the informed and active participation of citizens in government. The Maryland Department of Planning documents will provide factual information for this public discussion.
