Planning Commission to Recommend Comprehensive Plan Draft to Mayor and Council

The Mayor and Council will begin their review of the Planning Commission’s draft comprehensive plan update, starting this month.

After an extensive public input process and preparation of the draft plan, the Rockville Planning Commission is scheduled to present their recommended plan update during the Mayor and Council’s March 15 meeting. A public comment period into April will allow further community input.

Rockville’s comprehensive plan sets a vision and goals for the future of the city, with practical policies and actions to achieve those goals.

The comprehensive plan is organized in two sections. The first section contains 10 broad citywide “Elements,” including topics such as transportation, recreation and parks, and municipal growth. The second section focuses on issues and opportunities specific to 17 neighborhood-scale planning areas.

The Planning Commission’s draft comprehensive plan is based on feedback gathered throughout the Rockville 2040 process. If adopted, it will replace the city’s 2002 comprehensive plan and many of its subsequent amendments.
