The creator no longer lives in Aspen Hill, Maryland. After calling it my home for about 50 years, the place has changed beyond my limits of tolerance and has passed beyond my capacity for even prayer and hope. I do not intend to ever live there again.

Renewal and Revitalization
Aspen Hill was becoming a Slumburbia. Destabilization of the residential real-estate mortgage market accelerated this trend starting in early 2009. As of mid-2009, infrastructure replacement and upgrades in the Wheaton Woods neighborhood began, as well as WSSC repair and upgrades in Aspen Hill Park neighborhood. As of late fall, 2010, in an election year, cuts to the County budget were exacerbating Aspen Hill's rapid slide into Slumburbia status.
As of summer 2011, significant sidewalk, curb, and gutter repair or replacement are completed or are ongoing throughout Wheaton Woods and in parts of other subdivisions. Additionally, street resurfacing and WSSC water line work is occurring or is scheduled to begin soon.
