Columbia, Maryland is perhaps the most well-known and prosperous example of a planned city. Effectively started just five decades ago, Columbia has quickly blossomed into a virtually self-sustaining city of about 105,000 people.
Columbia was the creation of James Rouse, who dreamt of a diverse community able to support itself while eliminating segregation of all kinds. Ten villages were designed and built, and services were meant to be shared among the city as a whole. Interestingly, each village was named after a literary reference of some sort, such as Hobbit’s Glen, a reference to J.R.R. Tolkien’s masterpiece, The Hobbit.
Columbia is now one of the most desirable places to live in the U.S. It consistently ranks in the top 10 on Money Magazine’s Best Places To Live list, and Columbia residents are among the highest earners in the nation.
