Population Map
About this Map
This map shows a projection of population, based on the choices you have made. 

Light (yellow) areas show low density, while dark (red) areas show high density. Each color represents a mixture of dwelling types, but lighter areas would have more single-family homes with private yards, medium areas would have more duplexes and rowhouses, while dark areas could contain apartment buildings and condos. 

Density Legend
These images show examples of typical housing found at each density level.

1A – Primarily in Beltway*

In this scenario, 66% of new development occurs inside the beltway, 33% occurs in the suburbs, and 1% occurs in our rural areas.

Over half of the new total housing is multi-family, matching regional demographic demands and therefore capturing a much larger share of the region’s residential growth. Most of that growth occurs at densities that support vibrant, walkable communities that attract additional businesses and employment as well. Because these areas are already mostly developed, new construction will need to be infill and/or redevelopment and some rezoning and/or incentives might be required in order to spur investment. Even though there are more residents and businesses in this scenario compared to other scenarios, the impacts on the environment and public infrastructure are minimized through the application of smart-growth principles. However, some rezoning and/or incentives might be required in order to spur investment.

*The areas highlighted for growth are for illustrative purposes only and are not a statement regarding the realities of future development as identified in the General Plan.
{ scenarioId : 12 }
1B – Primarily in Beltway – Prioritized Centers*

This scenario is similar to the “Primarily in Beltway” scenario with 66% of new development occurring inside the beltway, 33% occurring in the suburbs, and 1% occurring in our rural areas. The difference is that about 30% of the development inside the beltway is concentrated in four prioritized centers on the northern Green Line, creating a high-density mixed use corridor.

Concentrating growth in these centers results in less land consumed, greater efficiency for bus and transit service, and creates walkable 24/7 communities that attract a larger share of the region’s businesses and residents. To match the projected regional demographic demands, over half of the new total housing is multi-family. Because these areas are already mostly developed, new construction will need to be infill and/or redevelopment and some rezoning and/or incentives might be required in order to spur investment. Even though there are more residents and businesses in this scenario compared to other scenarios, the impacts on the environment and public infrastructure are minimized through the application of smart-growth principles.

*The areas highlighted for growth are for illustrative purposes only and are not a statement regarding the realities of future development as identified in the General Plan.
{ scenarioId : 21 }
2A – Primarily in Suburbs*

In this scenario, 25% of new development occurs inside the beltway, 73% occurs outside the beltway, and 2% occurs in our rural areas.

This scenario assumes that the trends from the last 50 years of development continue, producing more single-family detached suburban homes. The dispersed pattern of suburban expansion requires the expansion of infrastructure (such as roads and schools) and services (such as fire and police protection) to new areas of the county. Low residential density requires the use of the car to get to critical services, thereby increasing greenhouse gas emissions. This scenario provides for large lots and big houses, which are desirable to many people, but consume more agricultural and forest lands than other scenarios.

*The areas highlighted for growth are for illustrative purposes only and are not a statement regarding the realities of future development as identified in the General Plan.
{ scenarioId : 22 }
2B – Primarily in Suburbs – Prioritized Centers*

This scenario is similar to the “Primarily in Suburbs” scenario with 25% of new development occurring inside the beltway, 73% occurring outside the beltway, and 2% occurring in our rural areas. The difference is that of the development that occurs outside the beltway, about 30% is concentrated in four prioritized centers.

Higher densities in these centers create walkable neighborhoods, but most still require a car for access because all except Largo are not located on a Metro line. Because these are new centers, the County must invest in building new roads, schools, and other infrastructure. In addition, the dispersed pattern of housing distribution in the rest of the area will make providing adequate public services less efficient and therefore more costly. This scenario provides for large lots and big houses, which consume more agricultural and forest lands than other scenarios.

**The areas highlighted for growth are for illustrative purposes only and are not a statement regarding the realities of future development as identified in the General Plan.
{ scenarioId : 31 }
3A – Grow Everywhere*

In this scenario, 50% of new development occurs inside the beltway, 49% occurs outside of the beltway, and 1% occurs in our rural areas.

Redevelopment inside the Beltway revitalizes existing communities and creates more dense and walkable mixed-use neighborhoods that make good use of existing infrastructure, but might require incentives or rezoning in order to spur investment. These revitalized areas are better able to support neighborhood shops and services, as well as attract new residents and businesses.

Development that falls outside the beltway will continue to be suburban in nature. The dispersed pattern of suburban expansion consumes more land and requires the expansion of infrastructure (such as roads and schools) and services (such as fire and police protection) to new areas of the county. Low residential density requires the use of the car to get to critical services, thereby increasing greenhouse gas emissions.

*The areas highlighted for growth are for illustrative purposes only and are not a statement regarding the realities of future development as identified in the General Plan.
{ scenarioId : 32 }
3B – Grow Everywhere – Prioritized Centers*

This scenario is similar to the “Grow Everywhere” scenario with 50% of new development occurring inside the beltway, 49% occurring outside of the beltway, and 1% occurring in our rural areas. The difference is there are four prioritized centers that are the focus of development, both inside and outside the beltway, which receive 20% of all projected growth.

These four centers currently exist, and the use of existing infrastructure would make for an efficient use of infrastructure. All of these prioritized centers are on a Metro line and near the beltway. Concentrating development in these centers provides them with enough residents and jobs to become true mixed use, walkable centers. Redevelopment inside the Beltway also makes good use of existing infrastructure and revitalizes existing communities but might require incentives or rezoning in order to spur investment.

The remaining development that falls outside the beltway will continue to be suburban in nature, consuming more land and requiring the expansion of infrastructure (such as roads and schools) and services (such as fire and police protection) to new areas of the county. The low residential density in these areas requires the use of the car to get to critical services, thereby increasing greenhouse gas emissions.
