Population Map
About this Map
This map shows a projection of population, based on the choices you have made. 

Light (yellow) areas show low density, while dark (red) areas show high density. Each color represents a mixture of dwelling types, but lighter areas would have more single-family homes with private yards, medium areas would have more duplexes and rowhouses, while dark areas could contain apartment buildings and condos. 

Density Legend
These images show examples of typical housing found at each density level.

Slide1
By 2035, Maryland is expected to have 1 million more residents, 500,000 new homes and 600,000 new jobs. Where will they go?
noscript
Slide2
It took three centuries to develop the first 650,000 acres in Maryland ... and 37 years to develop the next 1 million.
noscript
Slide3
For Maryland workers, average commute times and the percentage of commutes to another jurisdiction are among the highest in the nation.
noscript
Slide4
At current trends, new homes on septic systems will account for 1/4 of housing growth but 3/4s of nitrogen pollution into Chesapeake Bay the next 25 years.
noscript
Slide5
400,000 acres of forest and farmland will be converted to development if we stay the same course -- equal to 10 Assateague Islands. Smarter growth could cut that to roughly 100,000.
