Pressures to build, build, build will continue in many eastern shore towns... more concrete and vinyl clad homes is NOT the answer...Bravo to "less is more".

This is FANTASTIC news!

Hopefully this decision will be the first of many, not just in Maryland, but throughout the entire nation.

The big corporate developers have destroyed so much and it's about time they get reined in!

A solid win for common sense and conservation, but a loss for the big box crowd. I recall seeing this kind of development in and around Salisbury, Md., during my many Air Force Reserve-related trips down Delmarva to Langley Air Force Base and Hampton, Va.

There are national market studies showing a strong potential for a massive influx of retires from the NE [The US Census estimates 500k more population growth than the MDP projections-- reflecting these studies.I mention this because the impact far exceeds municipal growth, and will spill into t counties as low density[ but higher per unit cost housing but cheaper to develop] sprawl.
Instead of state regulations--the Md's new annexation laws will increase pressure on farm land conversions as developers seeking to avoid costly annexation procedures simply develop low densities in the counties. The ES towns and counties need a comprehensive and professional approach to accommodate some of this growth and deflect the rest. And while I am at; it may I ask why the state continues to subsidise ES growth by offering commuter passes on the bay bridge?

I went to high school at Beaverton High School in Beaverton, Oregon. Our mcasot, unsurprisingly, was the beaver.All the cheerleaders walked around on game day with the word BEAVERS written across their breasts. This did not seem weird to me until someone from out of state pointed it out after I left high school.
