Quarterly Round-up Meeting This Saturday

This coming Saturday, April 16, we'll have our first "Quarterly Round-up" meeting from 4-6 p.m. at the Pump House. This is an informal meeting to come see what's been going on at the regular meetings if you haven't been able to attend. It's a come and go, with no formal call to order. Children are welcome, and our new Kids Committee has collected toys to keep the littles occupied. If you have an older child (6th-10th grade-ish) who would like to earn SSL hours helping with the younger children they are welcome to join us (they must bring their own SSL form). I do ask that they arrive a few minutes before 4 p.m. so we can meet and give them some direction. They are also welcome to stay for their own meeting from 6-6:30 to discuss the possibility of forming a Junior Board or other appropriate ways they can get involved with their neighborhood.

Rockville, Md., April 8 -- The Mayor and Council will hold a public hearing on the Planning Commission's recommended "Rockville's Pike Neighborhood Plan" at 7 p.m. on Monday, April 11 in the Mayor and Council Chambers at City Hall.

This is the first of two public hearings on the recommended plan, which can be read at www.rockvillemd.gov/rockvillespike. Hard copies are available for review at City Hall and at the Rockville and Twinbrook libraries.

The public record for written comments will remain open until Monday, May 23. Testimony may be sent to cityclerk@rockvillemd.gov, or by mail to: City Clerk's Office, Rockville City Hall, 111 Maryland Ave., Rockville, MD 20850.

The "Rockville's Pike Neighborhood Plan" was approved by the Planning Commission on March 9. In accordance with Maryland law, the Mayor and Council have up to 150 days from the commission's approval to review and act on the plan.
The recommended plan, which is being updated for the first time since 1989, establishes policies for land use, transportation, parks and other topics along a key two-mile stretch of the Rockville Pike corridor, south of Rockville Town Center.

Public Invited to 'Help Plan Rockville's Future'

First of Four 'Rockville 2040' Forums is April 19
Rockville, Md., April 8 -- A series of citywide forums will offer community members the opportunity to help plan Rockville's future. The first forum is Tuesday, April 19.
The forums are a key part of "Rockville 2040," the process to update the city's Comprehensive Master Plan. The plan seeks to preserve and improve the quality of life in Rockville by guiding development and conservation and by ensuring the provision of high-quality community facilities.
All parts of the city need to be part of charting Rockville's future. At the forums, the community will develop a first draft of goals and objectives for key topics, which include land use, transportation, environment, economy, housing and historic preservation.
Forums will be held at VisArts, 155 Gibbs St., in Rockville Town Square, at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, April 19, May 10 and 24, and June 14. Participants are encouraged to attend all four forums as each one will build on the one before.
A light dinner will be served. Free parking is available in Town Square garages A, B and C, with validation. To register, email masterplan@rockvillemd.gov.

Construction Advisory East Rockville Sanitary Sewer Improvements

The City’s contractor, Fort Myer Construction Corporation, will replace the sanitary sewer
mains in your neighborhood. Weather permitting, work to replace the sanitary sewer
pipe and manholes will begin in January. The existing sewer is undersized and the City of
Rockville’s Department of Public Works determined that the sewer pipe needs to be
upgraded (See the reverse side of this advisory for a map of the affected area.)

During the sanitary sewer construction, drinking water or sanitary sewer services will not

be interrupted. Access to homes and driveways will not be affected. Impacts during
construction may include temporary road closures, on-street parking restrictions and
construction noise. Signs will be posted to notify motorists and residents of temporary
parking restrictions and lane closures.

Purpose: The improvements involve replacing the existing sanitary sewer pipes and manholes with new, larger pipes. The pipes and manholes to be replaced are located in roadways and within easements that traverse private property. The improvements are needed due to limited capacity in the existing sewers. This project was funded in the Fiscal Year 2016 Capital Improvements Program.

Location: Beginning in Maryvale Park near Taylor Avenue and ending at the intersection of East Middle Lane and Monroe Street. Additional streets affected are Hungerford Drive, Park
Road, North Stonestreet Avenue, Grandin Avenue, Highland Avenue, South Horners
Lane, Seth Place, and Charles Street.

Timeline: Weather permitting, the entire project will be completed within one year. Work on each street will take approximately four to eight weeks to complete.
