  • Protect the Patuxent watershed including the drinking water reservoir, and agricultural and rural open space.
  • Protect the low-density character of the Southeast Quadrant.
  • Provide a wide choice of housing types and neighborhoods for people of all income levels and ages at appropriate densities and locations.”
