The building boom of the early 2000s brought quick development to the area, with over 13,000 residents now calling the area home according to the 2010 census. Homes, neighborhoods and communities have sprung up at a quick pace, though careful planning was put in places decades prior. In 2011, the Montgomery County Planning Department amended the master plan to encourage grocery stores and other retail establishments to take up shop here, and many have, resulting in a nice selection of coffee shops, restaurants and two local grocery establishments. One of the main draws for the area is the well-designed transportation system. The whole community was planned to limit the need for vehicular travel, and there are numerous options for public transportation both in and around the area.
An hour northwest of Washington D.C. lies the quickly expanding community of Clarksburg, Maryland. New construction projects of all shapes and sizes are ongoing in all areas of town, and many townhome communities are being erected. Neighborhoods of beautiful colonial homes, with white picket fences and tree-lined streets can be found throughout the community. On the outskirts of town, older residences with large acreage are available and offer beautiful scenery.SHOW MORE
