Rockville 2040 - Comprehensive 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!

Trends Reports provide context for Rockville 2040 Master Plan Update
To understand conditions in the city as they stand today, city departments are preparing trends reports in several key topic areas that will inform the Master Plan Update. Topic areas include Community Facilities, Economy, Environment, Historic Preservation, Housing, Land Use, and Transportation. Comments are welcome and will be appended to the final reports.
