City approves final site plan for one of the last undeveloped plots on Golden Mile


Plans for one of the last remaining plots of undeveloped land along the City of Frederick’s Golden Mile have been finalized.

The city planning commission approved a final site plan Monday set to be constructed on a two acre piece of land along Route 40.

According to an attorney representing the developers, they plan to construct a 4,830 square foot commercial building with a drive-thru, ideally for a food service business.

Plans are also set to preserve the abundance of trees and shrubs that grow there.

“An overwhelming majority of the trees on the site are going to be preserved in a forest preservation easement. You don’t see that very often in a city, in urban areas, where that many trees can be preserved. It’s usually not feasible,” explained principal attorney at the law firm of Offit Kurman representing the developers, David Severn.

Owners of the site and developers have not yet chosen a tenant, but officials say there are at least two prospective buyers.
