In a planned suburban community, I like having neighbors close by, but on lots big enough to have privacy. Where I live is suburban, but if I want, I have a small city very close by and two of the best known cities on the East coast within about 40 minutes. The area is evolving, with some businesses closing and new businesses opening up. There is a bit more crime than there was 20 years ago, but no more than in other similar areas.

I have lived in the south, and visit other cities often. I am always glad to come home. I do not anticipate leaving.

I see this are growing fast and a lot of new younger families starting up there. With this more and more business will start up giving more employment options. Since we are close to Baltimore and DC you can have that city job with that country living and room to develop and grow a family. I see the future right now bright for Frederick, MD with many possibilities.
Whether you are in retail sales, research, military, banking, or medical there are tons of opportunities available locally. For those who want to earn more or are government workers its only a an hours drive to D.C. Finding work at a higher than average wage. When so many are fighting over minimum wage jobs it's hard to find one for so little in this area even at fastfood restaraunts!
