Development projects

There are over 20 developments pending for construction on the Annapolis Neck Peninsula, totaling 1,157 new housing units, which  you can see shown in the picture above (view the interactive image). This picture is not intended to imply that all development is bad.  It simply illustrates the collective impact development can have on our community and our quality of life.  We are especially attentive to development that strains the environment and/or the capacity of our roads and schools. ANPF is closely following these proposed developments:
