The hub of culture, commerce and government, our urban downtown with a small town feel is vibrant, walkable and economically vital. We are at the heart of a county that features nationally recognized biotech companies, three colleges, a super educated workforce and great amenities.
Downtown Frederick is a real place—not a museum. We value our beautiful architecture and history-lined streets, our neighborhood character and characters, our independent businesses and our year-round events that attract residents and visitors alike. We retain our historic charm while embracing new ideas. The people who live here and work here make us cool, reflecting a diversity of ethnicities, lifestyles, ages and incomes. Already a vital hometown today, Downtown Frederick in the next five years will be a stronger, better, greener, more attractive place to work, shop, dine and build a life.
