City seeking resident input on Maryland General Assembly legislative and capital funding priorities


The City of Frederick seeking resident input in shaping the legislative priorities that will guide the City's future. This process aims to understand the collective desires of the community for projects and policies the State of Maryland could assist in bringing to the City of Frederick.

The Maryland General Assembly Session begins on January 10th, 2024, and will run until April 8th, 2024. Maryland municipalities and other organizations seeking funding for local priorities generally participate in the Session in order to incorporate funding requests into the State of Maryland’s annual budget, or advocate for policy changes that benefit their communities.  

Mayor O’Connor said, “The City of Frederick is excited to engage our residents in shaping our legislative priorities for the 2024 legislative session in Annapolis. I believe the collective voice of our community is vital in creating a vibrant and responsive City. I encourage residents to participate in this process in order to help guide the City’s future.” 

There are several ways for residents to get involved and contribute to the establishment of our legislative priorities: 

Online Survey (Now until Oct. 16, 2023): 

We invite you to fill out our online survey, available now until October 16, 2023. Your input will help us understand your priorities and concerns. To access the survey, please visit

Virtual Town Hall (Oct. 4, 2023, at 7 p.m.): 

Join us for a virtual town hall meeting on October 4, 2023, at 7 p.m. This interactive session will provide a platform for residents to share their thoughts and engage in discussions regarding the city's legislative priorities. To participate, please visit

E-Comment (Oct. 18 Meeting Agenda): 

If you are unable to attend the virtual session and prefer not to complete the survey, you can still provide your input by submitting an e-comment on the October 18 Meeting agenda when it becomes available.
