2040 Master Plan UPDATE

Rockville Needs to Hear from You!

Rockville 2040 is the process to update the 2002 Comprehensive Master Plan. It involves a community conversation on the future of the city. The process will result in updated policies on land use, the environment, transportation, community facilities, parks, housing, historic preservation, economic development, and water resources that anticipate the next twenty years in Rockville. We encourage you to get involved and give us your comments!

What's Happening Now

Working with Neighborhoods to refine the Plan
Planning staff is working with various neighborhoods and property owners as the draft plan is completed, including work in Twinbrook, the West End, East Rockville, Rockshire, College Gardens, and more.
