History

Clarksburg is named for Native American trader John Clarke, and was established at the intersection of the main road between Georgetown and Frederick and an old Seneca trail. One of its earliest white inhabitants was a man named Ashford Dowden, who in 1752 received a patent for 40 acres (160,000 m2) from the colonial government, and two years later permission to build an inn. The inn itself is a footnote in history, hosting the army of General Edward Braddock during the French and Indian War, serving as a meeting place for localSons of Liberty in the years before the American Revolution, and possibly serving dinner to President Andrew Jackson on his way to his inauguration. Jamie, grandson of the trader, built a general store in the area around 1770, and over the next thirty years enough people moved to the area that Clark was appointed postmaster for the community. By 1875, Clarksburg was a major town in the northern part of the county, but the construction of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad undermined its economy.

In 1964, the Montgomery County planning commission decided that Clarksburg would be the last community along Interstate 270 that would have large-scale development. The Montgomery County Council adopted a master plan for Clarksburg in 1968, which rezoned land for a mix of townhouses and single-family houses. Another master plan was adopted in 1994. A retail area was planned to be built in Clarksburg, but retail development had not broken ground by 2010, to the dismay of some residents.

Development

Since 2000 there has been major growth in the area of Clarksburg. A new town center is being built in the heart of Clarksburg, near the historic center. 2010 Census data show that there are now over 13,677 residents and 4,352 households currently residing in Clarksburg, which consists of a diverse population with a high level of education attainment. Several public parks and schools have also been developed to help accommodate the growth. In recent years it was discovered that many new houses have had been built closer together than the minimum distance required by zoning laws, roads built too narrow for firetrucks to pass, homes and community facilities built without adequate permits or approvals by local authorities. This was found to be the fault of inadequate county oversight and lax enforcement of building codes and laws combined with a building boom in the early 2000s.

School enrollment issue

School Name School Enrollment Capacity School EnrollmentAs of 2006-2007 Projected Enrollment (2011–2012)According to MCPS Percent IncreaseFrom ’06-’07 to ’11-’12 Percent Above/BelowSchool Enrollment Capacity For 2011-2012
Clarksburg Elementary School [8] 335 students 385 students 469 students 21.8% increase 40.0% above capacity
Clarksburg High School [9] 1629 students 999 students 1479 students 48.0% increase 10.1% below capacity
Little Bennett Elementary School [10] 685 students 531 students 1174 students 121.1% increase 71.4% above capacity
Rocky Hill Middle School [11] 956 students 977 students 1250 students 27.9% increase 30.8% above capacity

The table shows that the two newest schools, Little Bennett Elementary School and Clarksburg High School, have the largest increase of students, with Little Bennett at 71.4% above building capacity in the projections of 2011-2012. This has led to a moratorium in issuance of permits for new projects, but not issuance of permits in existing projects, for new homes in the Clarksburg area. The majority of planned housing units will be built in existing projects. All four of the largest neighborhoods are exempt from the moratorium.
