    Once again....you are right, but where do you go? Crime rate in St. Mary's is escalating as in the northern part of Calvert. Sure, could go to Southern Calvert but what a long drive anywhere. Stinks huh? I loved growing up in Charles County. Now I am pulling my kid out of the school system and into private. Terrible!!!!!

    Yep. Walked from Rose Hill Drive to school and back every day then went skating Friday and Sat. night. Dad would give us $5 and that would get us in and skates and food. Those were the days (lord am I old.) I am afriad to let my daughter out the front yard. We would walk to skate and back in the dark cutting through Rose Hill shop. center. Boy, are those days OVER!!

    Northern Calvert is still nice and quiet. You just need to get far enough away from Rt4.

    Heading south on 301 towards Newburgh and the Mechanicsville area of Wicomico are still fairly unmolested. Of course when you forget the milk when you live out there you are screwed!!!

Doubt it's zoned residential since that side of the road is all commercial from the next property all the way down to 301.
    Yes, that's the property. It's a huge chunk of land. I can just see them putting in a busy fast food restaurant--or maybe six--just to screw up the traffic on Route 5 even more. Thanks a lot for the map!
    Also noticed the sign yesterday for a new housing development on what used to be the Bowling Farm, on the corner of Route 488 and 5--just as you turn right off of 488 to head south on 5. All of these new housing developments and businesses are making me sick--at least others here feel the same way I do. I hate what's happening to the County.

    No. I was class of 83'
    We moved over here in Brandywine in 89 for the TAG magnet schools, then went to Waldorf in 91 because PG got so bad. Now we can't wait to go further out. Its different when you don't have to worry so much about the schools. I have friends who's kids have 1 or 2 years to go....they're oughta here after that.

    Saw the perc test holes 2 years ago on what you are calling the Bowling Farm and knew it was getting developed.

    The farm where the leaders of the "Save Hughesville" (or whatever that anti-stadium group was called) live is covered in perc test holes. Has been since before they formed Save Hughesville. That's why I say they are just a couple of hypocrites. They don't want to Save Hughesville, they want to Build Out Hughesville by turning their neighborhood into yet another cookie cutter subdivision.
