The intent of this rural villages study is to better understand the impact of existing regulations for site development and road improvements on rural character as well as the future of alternative development strategies, the insertion of small-scale commercial or service needs in these communities, and conservation of the rural landscape. Changes to existing zoning, and other regulations that shape development, are not included in this study. This study provides additional impetus and recommendations for preservation and conservation strategies. It is focused on three communities in southeastern Prince George’s County-Baden, Aquasco, and Croom-and provides the basis for recommendations for incentives and regulations for enhancing and preserving the villages’ rural character. The three villages are located in the county’s Rural Tier with the exception of the northeastern portion of Croom that is located in the county’s Developing Tier.
