No Crowding + No Sprawl = No Growth


Maryland is expected to see substantial job growth in the next few years, which apparently is bad news. As The Washington Times explains, more people will create a conflict between local "adequate public facilities ordinances," which discourage development in "areas where schools are crowded or sewage-treatment systems are at capacity," and the state's "smart growth" policy, which aims to prevent sprawl by discouraging development everywhere else.
