I'm sorry, Mr. Preacher, I can complain about it if I want to. I only lived in MoCo for a little bit, as I was relocated here from Wisconsin and didn't know anything about the area. I also don't complain about the smells of the farms and would never expect existing businesses to change their ways because I am now here. I don't want this area to turn into MoCo. Nothing wrong with that. I have a 2 hour commute each way some days. How much further can I move to get away from undesirables?
I apologize for the way that sounded. It wasn't particularly aimed at you but you really have to follow things through to the end result. More houses means more infrastructure needs which would include stores and businesses. I have lived in MoCo all of my life, 58 years, and have seen the steady decline of the Frederick area. In another 20 years it will look just like MoCo. They said it would never happen to Frederick 25 years ago.

No worries, my friend. I fear you are right that it will look like MoCo. Ugh!!

Residential property taxes do not cover the burden of the residences. Commercial property taxes carry more burden than residential. A town with no commercial property will be poorer of have fewer services.

I'm sorry, I can complain about it if I want to. I paid plenty for my house. I only lived in MoCo for a little bit, as I was relocated here from Wisconsin and didn't know anything about the area.

I totally understand you. When I moved to Myersville in Jan 90 we had a ball field where the fire station is, we had a highs and the area past the post office on rt17 was all wetlands. Just started to build Ashley and meadow ridge subdivisions. Then the people came from out of county and the first thing they wanted was ball fields, a pool for their many children and more. So then they rezoned the protected wetland area and built their ball fields. Then they needed a path from Main Street to get there. Luckily no community pool (yet). I would like a library in town. Middletown is the same with building of a strip mall across from the golf course area. And I live directly across from a farm on the gun club road. No problem for me!

I'd rather pay more taxes than have our small town built up.

Even Waldorf had it's day.... small time gambling joints and St Charles was but a twinkle in some developers eye and it was country. I think this country is pretty much full up and we really don't need any immigration from anywhere any longer..

That's what I did. Paying more taxes than down here, but you can get WAY more house for the money. same commute time. My neighbor has roosters and chickens and I much rather have that than what I had to deal with down here.
