Welcome New Residents

Dear New Rockville Resident,

On behalf of the Rockville City Council, we would like to welcome you to the community.

If you’re not familiar already with the City of Rockville, there’s a lot our community has to offer. Here are a few quick facts about Rockville:
  • Rockville has approximately 62,000 residents, across approximately 25,000 households.
  • Our community is one of the most diverse and international in the world, with more than one-third of our residents having been born outside the United States, coming from virtually every country in the world.
  • Our city is an economic engine with about 75,000 jobs within our border. Our city’s jobs-to-households ratio of 3:1 is unrivaled in the region.
  • Rockville has a rich history going back over 250 years. Rockville was named as the seat of Montgomery County in 1776.

Another distinguishing feature of our community is the City government, which continues to strive to make Rockville one of the nation’s very best places to live and work. Bloomberg Business Week, Money Magazine, and U.S. News & World Report named Rockville a great place to live, work and start a business in 2010 - the only mid-Atlantic city to receive all three distinctions.

One aspect of life in Rockville that we are proud of is the wide range of cultural and recreational opportunities available in our community. This tradition continues with a number of exciting events. You may want to visit our vibrant Town Center.

To help you learn more about Rockville, we’ve provided the links on this web page to some of the information that’s available on the city government’s website.

If ever you have a question, suggestion or concern, please do not hesitate to contact us or others in the city government. A good point of contact is our City Manager's office, which can be reached at 240-314-8100 or via email.

Again, welcome to the City of Rockville. Thanks for making our community your home.

Sincerely,

Mayor Bridget Donnell Newton
Councilmember Beryl L. Feinberg
