With an increasing trend of people moving to Frederick County, one neighborhood development is using hundreds of acres of land to provide homes for more than 1,000 families.
"The board of supervisors was presented a master development plan for a additional section of the Snowden Bridge Development," said Candice Perkins, Frederick County senior planner.
That additional section will be on nearly 300 acres of underdeveloped land.
"The plan that was presented just shows the layout of the roads, where the open space is going to be, the types of housing they're going to construct, and where they're going to be," said Candice.
Houses already exist in the community located in Stephenson, but leaders and developers see the need for more.
The plan includes single family homes, townhouses, and multi-family homes.
"I think it's a good idea, said John Massey. "It enlarges the community, it gives us a lot more people to co-habitat with in a home setting."
John Massey lives in Frederick County. He believes the more people in his neighborhood, the better.
"I think the more people we have here, the safer the community will be because there are always more eyes and ears needed out here."
The Snowden Bridge neighborhood is developed by Brookfield Homes homebuilding division. Neighbors say the division has created a good neighborhood that attracts people to the area.
No one objected at the Frederick County board of supervisors meeting to continuing the development project.
According to the developer's website, homes in that community range from $180,000 - $360,000.
