description: <DIV STYLE="text-align:Left;"><DIV><P><SPAN>This layer was created by overlaying official municipalities atop our office's Communities layer.</SPAN></P><P><SPAN>The Communities layer was created in 2009 to describe areas often referenced by denizens, as many areas of the County are not within an official municipality with city limits. The five Regional Services Center directors at the time worked with DTS-GIS staff to create geographic areas with which citizens identify, since some of the general place names such as “Bethesda” and “Silver Spring” can cover large swaths of the County and are not specific enough for certain purposes.</SPAN></P><P><SPAN>As County departments used the Communities layer, they realized it would be useful to immediately see it in the context of which areas were within the city limits of one of the County's municipalities. Hence, this layer was created to provide the "best of both worlds."</SPAN></P></DIV></DIV>
