Ten Mile Creek in Clarksburg, MD is Montgomery County's last, best stream and part of the drinking water supply for 3 million people in the Washington, D.C. region.Clarksburg Town Center has grown tenfold in the past ten years, but infrastructure including safe, walkable shopping, a public library and transit, is lacking.
Montgomery must keep its promises to meet the needs of Clarksburg residents and put in place science-based protections for fragile, sensitive Ten Mile Creek. The alternative would be to allow further sprawl to degrade Ten Mile Creek and to pull infrastructure investments away from where they are needed - in the Town Center.
The way to avoid these tragic mistakes is via sound land use planning through an amendment to the 1994 Clarksburg Master Plan. Learn more here.
