Burtonsville is dying for lack of people. The realignment of the Route 29 bypass removed 50,000 cars per day from the center of this small town, and now the commercial zones do not have enough support to survive.

This crisis has been ongoing for over seven years, and the local planners and politicians have been unwilling to address this problem.  The solution is obvious:  the Town needs a residential core.  They need people to support the commercial centers.

Fortunately, there is a 40-acre tract of land next to the Burtonsville Crossing shopping center on Old Columbia Pike, that should be developed into multi-family housing.  This is the most obvious way to revitalize and stimulate this failing Town. Burtonsville has no residential core.  It needs people.  Now.  It does not need any more parks, as the County proposes!

Save Burtonsville!  Allow residential development, next to the Shopping Center on Old Columbia Pike.
