Has Spring Finally Sprung?

On the plus side, new permits are up! This equates to more opportunities for builders and tradesmen. If current trends continue, an increase of 15-20 % (for new construction) over the past year is the result.
The new High school is progressing nicely. It is a beautiful building that includes many hi-tech features. Those surroundings can only help Charles County students achieve more in that attractive, state of the art, environment.
New Single Family Homes, Apartments, and Townhouses will also show increases this year.
