Community Planning and Development Services

We ensure the safe and orderly development of Rockville from "big picture" visioning to building occupancy.

The Department of Community Planning and Development Services (CPDS) oversees planning, property development and construction activities in Rockville to ensure the vision for the city is achieved. The community expresses this vision through the city’s Master Plan, the Zoning Ordinance and other development regulations. The department serves public requests including general zoning or permitting information, historic research, property information and building and fire code interpretations.
