More New Home Growth Approved for St. Charles, MD

Real Estate Agent with The Benya Group 618516

New Home in Waldorf, MDSt. Charles has been growing for years. In fact, there are currently about 50,000 residents in the area, so what's a few thousand more? The Charles County Planning Commission sat down Monday night and approved a preliminary plan to build (another) new subdivision in St. Charles called Gleneagles South.

So how many homes will this new community create? Almost 850! The preliminary plan shows 647 single family homes and 200 town homes, all planned to be located near White Plains regional golf course.

Hang on, I know what you're thinking: "Waldorf doesn't need more houses!"

Yes, I know, you're absolutely right.

The last thing current residents want to see is more new residents. Fortunately, the planning commission is aware of your concerns, and they did address that in the meeting. While they acknowledged that a growth moratorium may be necessary, they opted to discuss that at a later time.

Pretty excited when I saw this, but then I realized that I'm from Saint Charles, illinois!  Not Maryland!  Glad you're growing!

St. Charles is growing, Jonathan, at the same pace--about 250 housing units a year--that it has grown since 1972. And by master-planning to include roads (like the extension of St. Charles Parkway), schools (like the site for St. Charles High School on Piney Church Road) parks, walking paths, commercial space, and recreation like parks and pools, St. Charles does much more than other communities to account for the impacts the growth of its communities.
