We ask that parents bring cookies or other snacks to share, and ERCA will provide hot cocoa and water.

We need a couple of volunteers to drive around and help judge our mostly no-rules holiday outdoor d├ęcor competition. Judging is tentatively set for Tuesday, December 19 beginning at 6:30 p.m., but depending on availability of judges can occur anytime between Sunday, December 17 and Wednesday, December 20.

Have Your Say on a New Police Chief
Did you take the survey to help Rockville find its new police chief? If not, better hurry -- the deadline to take the survey is today!

Name the New Park
That’s right, Rockville needs a name for a new 6.4-acre park planned for the former site of Chestnut Lodge at 500 W. Montgomery Ave. Send your suggestions to us by Tuesday, Dec. 19 to be considered. Either email cityclerk@rockvillemd.gov or mail them the old-fashioned way to City Clerk/Director of Council Operations Office, 111 Maryland Ave., Rockville, MD 20850.

Whew, What a Year
2017 is nearly over, so “Rockville Reports” took its annual look back over a hectic year for the city, from a new city manager to the 60th anniversary of the Pinneberg-Rockville sister city connection to a perfect score for LGBTQ support. You can also see the Maryland Women’s Business Center’s year in review.

Next in Budget Discussions: Water and Sewer Rates
Following two public hearings on the Fiscal Year 2019 budget in the fall, the Mayor and Council are turning their attention in December to the city’s water and sewer rates, while continuing to seek input online about the community’s budget priorities. City staff will give a presentation about Rockville’s water and sewer rates during the Mayor and Council meeting on Monday, Dec. 11. A public hearing on Monday, Jan. 8 will give community members an opportunity to provide feedback.

Mayor and Council Testimony Calls for School Renovations
In November, the Mayor and Council advocated their priorities for city schools before the Montgomery County Public Schools Board of Education. They also set their legislative priorities for the Maryland General Assembly’s 90-day session, which begins Jan. 10, and presented those priorities to the Montgomery County Delegation on Nov. 13.

Community Organizations Invited to Apply for Grants
Nonprofits supporting the advancement of education and community engagement are invited to apply for grants that Rockville issues annually to local  organizations that partner with the city to enhance quality of life of Rockville residents. Applications are due by 5 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 20.

Rockville 2040 - Upcoming Open House

Stonestreet Corridor Study

Good Evening, Stonestreet Corridor Study Community:

The next community meeting for the Stonestreet Corridor Study is scheduled for Tuesday, December 5 at 7:00 p.m. at the Lincoln Park Community Center, 357 Frederick Ave, Rockville.

At the kickoff meeting in May, several  opportunity spots were identified within the Study area, including the MCPS sites on N. Stonestreet, the former WINX site, the Park Road area where it intersects with N. Stonestreet, and the Rockville Metro/transit station area.  At the meeting on Dec. 5, we’ll ask for your thoughts on potential redevelopment concepts/visions for these areas.

Similar to the format in October, we’ll start the meeting with a presentation and then move into an open house format where you can take as much or as little time as needed to review the materials at each station, talk with staff, and share your feedback.

Hope to see you there,

Andrea Gilles
City of Rockville
Community Planning & Development Services Department
Direct: 240-314-8273
