Steering Development

We face immense population pressures here in Howard County and I think a good place to steer growth is downtown Columbia, but it needs to be done in a way that will create a livable, economically sustainable community that reflects Howard County’s values of being mixed income, preservation of green space, and planning before we build so we have the infrastructure to meet the communities needs. The current plan does not yet do that. We can get the current plan fixed before it is approved if we let the county officials know where the problems are and what solutions would fix these problems. For a discussion on some of these issues please check out the earlier posts on this blog, some of them linked to in the post right below this post.
