CAPPA's mission is that we promote land use that sustains our rural communities and the natural resources, open spaces, beauty, history and culture of the Thurmont region. In case you aren't familiar with our web site, take a look at and you will see a lot of information, primarily about the three proposed Thurmont annexations right now.
