Today's Bowie has evolved out of an initial patchwork of farms and villages into a vibrant city of almost 60,000 residents.
Neighborhoods come in all sizes and with different types of offerings. There are single-family homes, townhomes, apartments, and senior living facilities.
Many Bowieites identify themselves by their neighborhood or section. Services like trash collection, recycling pickup, and leaf collection are scheduled by neighborhood, so it's important to know which one you live in.
