Developed Lands In Md. Increases

BALTIMORE (AP) -- A Maryland analysis has found that developed lands in the state increased 8.4 percent between 2002 and 2010.

The latest version of the state's Land Use/Land Cover map was released on Thursday. The analysis found that the rate of development since 2002 was twice the rate of population, which increased 4.8 percent.

Joe - I can tell you first hand that the biggest abuser of Developing lands around here is . . . . Your's Truly the Government itself.

Look at the vast hordes of land that the government has bought up in and around Salisbury. They have bought up so much that I cannot even begin to post the acquisitions!
