Exploring the future of town development on Maryland's Eastern
Shore, this thesis confronts the pattern of sprawling suburban
expansion by offering an alternative masterplan of compact, limited
development for the historic town of Chesapeake City. In addition
to proposing a comprehensive strategy for managing future growth in
the region, this project actively engages the local discourse
surrounding the Chesapeake Country National Scenic Byway, asserting
Chesapeake City's position as the northern gateway to the
Chesapeake Bay and Maryland's Eastern Shore. By reconnecting the
town to the Scenic Byway and strengthening the town's presence on
the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal, the project augments the town's
access to the recreational and tourist opportunities of the
northern Chesapeake region. Furthermore the project proposes a
carefully woven network of neighborhoods and districts, promoting a
diverse, livable community.
