While I mourn the loss of any green area, I only hope that they will include housing for low income and elderly people. Developers never seem to think about them. They just want the money. Is there any plan for another hospital? Greater Laurel would be swamped with the new influx of people in the area. Traffic has been a problem in the area for some time. Hope that will also be addressed. Pretty soon Baltimore and Washington D.C. will merge together as on huge metropolitan area.

I agree with previous posts. "Poor working stiff," the developers don't care about such things as you mentioned because THEY don't live in the areas being developed! And you can pretty much bet the rent money that things like increased traffic, drastic increases in school enrollment, etc., won't be considered until after the fact. Really a shame!

It is a shame. I live in an area that is being "over-developed" and the county can't build enough new schools to keep up with the growth. Not to mention, it used to take me 35 minutes for a one way commute to work and now, I am on the road for 1.5 hours one way (and that is on a good day).

I just want to know why is there a need for yet another shopping area when we currently have...Bowie Town center (not that old)...The Boulevard(definitely not that old)...and the new National Harbor(which isn't even born yet). Plus the new designed town center at the old Landover Mall site which might I add is 1 whole exit up from the Boulevard (which by the way did I say is not that old!!) What about schools, books for schools, housing with programs so there can be more home owners and less renters, community centers for the youth so they can get out of the streets.

Clearly no one is seeing the big picture. Over-development here we come!

Developers ony care about the money.
They aren 't building a home for
themselves so they don't care about
the impact on the area.One I know
about lives in a 10 room,4 bathroom
home on a horse farm in VA.The county
counsel smells money and campian
contributions also.
