I completely agree. I remember when those areas were unspoiled and rural. I am disgusted at the over-development taking place in MD. It may be good for the economy, but it is bad for prices, traffic and the Chesapeake Bay.

I actually think the place where I live rocks. I could do w/ fewer farms and more natural areas (not a fan of pesticides), but I love horse farms and the little shops and the economic, racial and religious diversity of my area. I can't afford to maintain a horse, but they're so picturesque.

I am pretty happy my property value is falling, as well. It is not super great for me, I guess, but it also means a bunch of developers are not going to descend on my neighborhood or the surrounding areas and destroy them.

Would love to live in Western Maryland. It looks really cool. I would just like to be close to the mountains.

Waterfront property on the Eastern Shore, with a nice boat, so I could catch my own fish and blue crabs.

Santa Claus, please take note....

The locals of SoMD have been on to Northeastern transplants like yourself for a while now. They know you're only here for the job and snicker behind their backs with complaints like you voiced and the old "Southern MD inbreds" crap. Believe it or not, you moved to the South when you picked Southern Maryland. And a fairly rural part at that. Therefore, it is not going to have the close-in neighborhoods of boroughs and townships in the Northeast (maybe people LIKE not having their neighbors up their ass and owning some acreage). To expect that is purely ignorance. Judgmental attitude? You said SoMD was "sucking your soul". You expect that not to ruffle some feathers? There are two types of new residents- ones who embrace and appreciate their new community, and ones who ***** and whine about how much better it was, or how things were done in "X" state. It's clear where you fall.
Nail on the head. All these North eastern people come down here and ruin whats left of our southern charm and heritage. If yall dont like it go back to where you came from. While I love having a job, I curse the government expansion that has ruined this state. Too many temp residents come here and take away our identity and then ***** about it.

Southern maryland (both east and west) are awesome places. I have family there and they love it too. Please dont ruin one of the last bastions of REAL maryland left and just go back to the northeast.

Anyplace in MD where there is a no development clause in effect is nice.

Very very rare though.
