Mayor and Council Adopt Design Guidelines for East Rockville

The Mayor and Council adopted at their Monday. Feb. 1 meeting a zoning amendment to allow implementation of the East Rockville Design Guidelines and Standards.

The design guidelines include requirements, in addition to the existing residential zoning, that apply to new single-unit home construction and significant additions to existing homes.

Residents of East Rockville engaged with city staff and a design consultant over the course of a year to develop the design guidelines for the East Rockville neighborhood.

The project is rooted in recommendations from the 2004 East Rockville Neighborhood Plan to retain the unique and diverse physical and natural characteristics of the community.
