City Begins Development of 10-Year Plan to Update Historic Preservation Initiatives

Rockville is developing a Historic Preservation Work Plan, a 10-year program that lays out a series of recommendations to assess and update the city’s historic preservation program.

The plan, which will be open to public input during its development, will be the first step in updating how the city approaches preserving its history.

Recommendations included in the plan were developed based on prior studies, plans and public discussions dating back to 1981, and address various historic preservation program needs, such as survey and inventory of historic resources, historic districts, incentives, easements, education and outreach, prehistory, and archaeology.

In addition to providing a needed assessment of programming and policy, the work plan will help develop components to be incorporated in an update to Rockville’s Historic Preservation Plan, formerly known as the Historic Resources Management Plan.

The Mayor and Council are scheduled to discuss the work plan at their Monday, March 20 meeting.

For more information or to schedule an in-person meeting, contact Christopher Meyers, principal planner — historic preservation, at [email protected] or call 240-314-8200.
