Maryland - and to some extent Massachussets - and New England in general, have always befuddled me with their jurisdictional issues.bestnightmare said:this 'city' is not a city at all, but completely under the jurisdiction of suburban montgomery county, md. it's just about one mile from the d.c./md line, and 7 miles from downtown d.c.
could this be a model 'suburb of the future'?
Maryland has three types of municipalities - cities, towns, and villeges, but they are relatively few and far between for a state of 5million. After Baltimore City (independent of any county) the next-largest municipality is Frederick, with slightly over 50,000. Really, though, there are other communities with more people, like Silver Spring, Columbia, Bethesda, Dundalk. None of these places are incorporated , Baltimore County, pop. ~750,000, does not have any incorporated municipalities, and Montgomery, the state's largest (<900,000) has just a handful of incorporated places that comprise a small fraction of the population.bturk said:Maryland - and to some extent Massachussets - and New England in general, have always befuddled me with their jurisdictional issues.
