Dean and Graditor Gain Approval for Crum Farm

February 11, 2014

On February 10, 2014, attorneys Bruce N. Dean and Lisa Lawler Graditor obtained approval from the City of Frederick Planning Commission for a mixed use master plan of development for the 537-acre Crum Farm located in the northwestern quadrant of the City of Frederick.  

The Planning Commission’s approval of the master plan on February 10th,  marks the culmination of more than four years of combined efforts by Linowes and Blocher LLP, Rodgers Consulting, Inc., and Foulger Pratt, to get the Crum Farm annexed into the City of Frederick, assigned to a zoning district which permits its development as a mixed use community, and to formulate an innovative community design for the approved 1200 residential dwelling units and 1.3 million square feet of nonresidential development. 

The Planning Commission approved the master plan unanimously over community opposition and lauded the project as one that is environmentally sensitive and pedestrian friendly with a strong sense of place that will become one of the City’s premier mixed use neighborhoods.
