Throwback Thursday: Ron Young on Carroll Creek

Posted on 04.03.14 – History, People & Places, Throwback Thursdays

Ron Young, mayor of Frederick from 1974-1990, stands in front of what would become Carroll Creek Linear Park, before completion of the flood control project in 1997. Young, now a state Senator, was a key figure in promoting the project as both a means to protect Downtown Frederick from creek floods and a tool to attract development along a new promenade.
