TRAPPE, Md.- Trappe has a population of just over 1,000 but plans are in the works that would quadruple the Talbot County town's number over the next 25 years.

The Lakeside at Trappe project would include 2,500 new homes, all on a 930-acre property located off of Route 50. The property was once owned by Trappe residents but has since been annexed to the town.

Many residents are looking forward to the perks this project will bring.

"It will be another place along Route 50 to attract people to spend a little money," said Willie Schlossbach of Easton.

"Bringing in more people will mean bringing in more money," said Charles Anderson of Trappe.

Officials said there are a number of potential pros that come with this project but not everyone sees it that way.

"Some people like the small town atmosphere here and won't like the sudden explosion of that many additional people," Anderson said. 

One of those people who enjoy small town life is Rosalie Evans of Trappe.

"I am not happy about it, I don't like it," said Evans. "We don't need more traffic and I would like to keep it a small town, one that people want to come to, not get away from."

Town officials are expecting to have the first 100 homes built at Lakeside by 2016.
