Mixed-use Howard project moves forward


Larry Carson writes in this article about the state of Maryland’s plans to extend their MARC commuter rail trains to Savage, a community near Fort Meade, outside of Baltimore.  The area has already been zoned for TOD and a TIF scheme has been established to help this area grow in a good urban pattern.  The state of Maryland is arguably the nost agressive in the country as far as promoting TOD, and to see them moving forward with their plans is encouraging for the rest of the country.
