I have always wondered this, If you look at the distance between Davidsonville or Lothian and D.C it's actually closer to D.C then places such as Waldorf, Clarksburg and Ashburn VA. Those places have all exploded in growth and development in the past decade. Why has non of that development made it to southern Anne Arundel county? Is it because it's considered part of the Baltimore metro area so this could cause confusion? Is it because residents of this area want to keep it rural (which I can understand). I especially think it's odd since route 4 is a pretty direct route into D.C especially if you pick up Suitland Parkway past the beltway, it takes you right behind Nats Park. 50 isn't a terrible commute to D.C either until you hit NY avenue. But it's still better then some places in MOCO or NOVA.

Southern Maryland wants to be rural. Let them remain to be rural.

It's also far from all the high paying jobs in Tyson's and Reston.

So is Howard County which is one of the highest incomes in the region. The income of AA county are still high so plenty of people have good jobs. The county just keeps growth very limited.

Howard County draws from high-paying jobs in Montgomery County, around BWI (contractors), Columbia and Baltimore.

Some trivia: Davidsonville has a private nudist colony. It's on Patuxent River Road, just north of Central Avenue.
