Charles Co. residents please read and take action to stop the next phase. This will only make the traffic worse in the area and make White Plains, Bryan's Rd look like Waldorf.

What exactly is the problem? Not trying to get smart but you can inform me of what the issues are. I believe they need another road down to Waldorf. While 210 isn't really too bad, Route 5 is horrible. In order to keep popping developments up in Brandywine and Waldorf there needs to be more than two ways out.

We have 228. The more large 4 lane highways that come thru the area, the more development and that equals more crime. Our schools are already overcrowded. We should be building more of those before developing more. Also, this particular stretch that they want to come thru will greatly affect an area that is pleasant, full of wildlife, quiet and not commercial. It is not necessary to come thru that area when they can use existing roads.

i noticed in another post you complained about waldorf becoming too congested...this new connector will bring 8000 more homes and more development to our county and yet they want to do this before building more schools. i am not against all development but i do't want to live in an area that is too congested. we still have a lot of areas in the county that are "country" and i would like to keep some of that in place. i like living in a quiet area where you don't hear major highway traffic all the time. and i think we need to prevent the county from becoming like our neighboring PG with high crime.

Yes but I don't feel the representatives of our county are really doing what's best for the county - they are allowing homes to be built without schools. More tax money is not going to build new schools and more people is going to equal more crime. Sad to say but we are doomed to becoming another PG county. I know one county person said something along those lines and everyone tried to say he was racist. I don't think it has anything to do with race - we need to get a grip on this county period.

Yes and Diggs (elementary next to NP) is getting them too and they have only been open 2 years - 250 kids overcrowded and they are building a huge neighborhood across from there off 228 - I assume those kids will also go to Diggs this fall.

Considering how close it is to Rt 210 I'll bet ther are a boat load of kids from P.G county in both those schools.
