I had to laugh...You're living in Montgomery county now...so moving to Germantown will not help the situation.

Jefferson and Morgan counties have the same problem. Move 200,000 Marylanders and Virginian's there in a 20 year period to excape high taxes.
Add to the burden of their cities, infrastructure...the demand for new teacherless schools and other services...create an environment of diversity for the newcomers..
Do all this with no zoning and a legislature that is 250 miles away...
many think this region is still part of Virginia. Some know that apples are grown here.

This region is trying to cope with the influx of crime and drug related crime. It will take years to solve these problems as the local and county governments are out manned and must rely on their own resoures to manage this problem.
Can you visualize a 300 pound infant needing feeding and a diaper change every 3 hours...and his normal sized parents are wondering what he will look like when he grows up? That is the situation in our eastern panhandle...
We really should shut down that border or give the panhandle back to Virginia.

It's a long ride on the Marc Train....to me the money is the same...(Housing costs a little lower but made up on the cost of commuting) How do you put a price on the time lost on the commute? If you want to move there, do so. I think you will be taking on more problems than you have...Move...you can always moveback...good luck.

Diversity? It's a neighborhood filled with the people from Leesburg, Reston, Germantown and Columbia who didn't like their town 10 years ago and moved further out. You will be the 'newbie'.

Eh, my neighborhood in Inwood is mostly folks that live and work in the Shenandoah region. 30 some homes, each homesite no less than 3 acres, most around 6 acres.. We have 2 Af/Am families, an oriental family, Italian ancestry, German... you name it. I'd say we're multicultural. At least we all pitch in when we slaughter hogs
