Carlisle: Overview

Carlisle is categorized by MAPC as a Country Suburb. These communities have very low housing density, with no significant mixed-use town center and no compact neighborhoods. They have large amounts of vacant developable land, and new growth largely takes the form of conventional low-density subdivisions developed on vacant land, or auto-oriented office and industrial parks. They are generally growing rapidly in percentage terms.
