Initiatives and Future Planning
The former golf course is undergoing a master plan. The multidisciplinary master-planning consultant team will reflect the Mayor and Council’s goal to reserve all, or a large majority, of the site as a park.

The City of Rockville is embarking on a process to develop its first Climate Action Plan, a Mayor and Council priority initiative, to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and prepare the community to adapt to a changing climate.
Deer Culling Pilot Program
Rockville will pilot an archery-only deer cull, in addition to continuing the city’s ongoing efforts to manage a growing white-tailed deer population, such as data collection, education, the use of repellents and fencing, and participation in a countywide deer-management working group.
