IMPORTANT:  November 1 is the deadline for fall submission. There are three opportunities each year: March 1, July 1, and November 1. 

However, the option to pay the capacity fee over a ten (10) year period (with interest) will only be available until 6/30/15. That means you would have to submit your application now in order to have all of the approvals (town, county, state) in time to take advantage of the special financing through Frederick County Department of Utilities. 

NOTE: The most recent applicant had their application final approval in 7 months. (March 1 - September 26). The Town cannot guarantee that the final approval will be completed in time for the 6/30/15 deadline for the Ten Year Option for the Capacity Fee.

Welcome to the Town of New Market, Maryland

Since its humble beginnings more than 200 years ago, one thing remains the same about historic New Market, Maryland... It’s the one place you will always feel welcome.

New Market, Maryland is the colonial rest stop that hasn’t lost her historical perspective after all these years. And yet her eye is fixed on tomorrow’s horizons of balanced growth and continued harmony with the natural community landscape.



As reported by the Frederick County Sherriff’s Department, the County is experiencing a 300% rise in the use of heroin and prescribed opioids.  This has led to an equivalent rise in deaths due to drug overdose.  A coalition of Frederick County public leaders was formed to develop outreach and educational programs to ensure that parents are aware of the signs of drug abuse and are aware of local County and State services, who stand by to help those with drug addiction illnesses.


A new webpage provides a one-stop shop for information, which citizens should use to learn about drug abuse and the resources available to combat drugs.  The webpage is www.FrederickCountyMD.gov/DrugAwareness.


Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS) is sponsoring a drug abuse poster contest.  All FCPS students are eligible to participate in the contest.  Entries are due by January 15.  The theme is, “Drug Abuse:  What Parents Should Know and Do.”  Prizes include lift tickets and ski lessons at White Tail Resort and catering from Famous Dave’s.  Visit www.fcps.org for more details.


In addition, the coalition is planning the following drug awareness events for the public:

           Wednesday, February 19          6:00 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.    Governor Thomas Johnson High School

           Wednesday, March 19              6:00 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.    Brunswick High School

           Wednesday, April 23                 6:00 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.    Oakdale High School


The Town of New Market and the surrounding area has not been immune to this public health emergency.  If you have questions regarding the signs of drug abuse or about what services are available to treat addictions, please attend one of these outreach activities or contact one of the services listed on the Frederick County Drug Awareness web site.
