Local Information About Columbia, Maryland
Columbia was planned and developed by The Rouse Company. The development of Columbia was guided by four basic goals:
- To build a complete city that meets the basic needs of its people including housing, jobs, recreation, educational and cultural institutions, health care, etc.
- To respect the land
- To provide for the growth of people.
- To make a profit.
Although Columbia with its with 10 self contained villages is reaching completion of its initial goals, it will never be finished. The history of the Columbia community is still being written. Columbia Association, General Growth Properties, Village Associations and other organizations continue the dedication to keeping the community vital. This drives the private sector to follow suit. A second generation of residents is beginning to make Columbia home as the children of the early home owners begin to raise families of their own. In 2007 Columbia turned 40 years young!
