The Georgetown Pike
Rural Preservation Trust

Our community is at a crossroads.  Some of our most iconic rural assets are at risk.  Many have already been lost to development.

What we lose in viewshed, heritage, and unique way of life, we gain in declining property values, more traffic, more flooding, more light & noise pollution, and a less desirable community to live in.
