I have been reading the draft of the Livable Frederick plan, and I attended one of the public sessions. I consider it to be thoroughly prepared, well presented, and a step forward in their approach to the planning process. I have one reservation.

The real and palpable challenges that climate change represents are only addressed obliquely. The phrase never appears in the document. We must not tiptoe around a problem of this magnitude. It seems to me we need to address it directly and explicitly. This will guide the planners’ thinking, and allow them to address the problems climate change is already causing openly.
