East Rockville Guidelines

Greetings, East Rockville!

Thank you for joining us at Glenview Mansion last night to review and discuss the final draft of the East Rockville Design Guidelines and Standards.  We value your time and feedback, and appreciate your continued involvement in this project.

If you couldn’t make it last night, or if you didn’t get a chance to provide comments, the project webpage has been updated with the online survey we used last night.  The survey covers each of the issues that are included in the final draft and can be found at this link.  The final draft document is available for review here.

There is still time for input, so if you have comments on the final draft, please take a moment to take the survey.

Thank you!

Andrea

Leaf Pick Up

The City of Rockville will vacuum leaves from neighborhood curbs in two rounds, beginning Monday, Oct. 14.

An interactive map at www.rockvillemd.gov/leafcollection allows residents to input their address and learn when their leaves will be collected.

Rake leaves next to, but out of, roadways, gutters and bike lanes, and away from parked vehicles. Leaves should be raked by 6 a.m. on the first day of their collection period, but no earlier than one week before the collection dates to avoid grass damage or fire hazards. Remove sticks and other objects from leaf piles. Avoid parking near leaf piles or other vehicles.

After the collection period ends, use biodegradable paper lawn bags or 32-gallon trash cans (without plastic garbage bags) to set leaves out on your refuse and recycling collection day. Use alternative disposal methods such as mulching or composting. Do not dump leaves, grass clippings or other yard waste into storm drains, along stream banks or directly into streams, where they can cause blockages that contribute to localized flooding or release nutrients that lead to fish kills.

Accessory Buildings Supplemental Public Hearing - October 7 at 7 p.m

Dear Resident,
I hope this email finds you well. In behalf of the Planning and Development Services, I want to let you know of a supplemental public hearing before the Mayor and Council on Zoning Text Amendment TXT2019-00254.
The text amendment TXT2019-00254, proposes revisions to the development standards for accessory buildings in residential zones, and for accessory buildings located in both the MXT (Mixed-Use Transition) and HD (Historic District) zones.  Accessory buildings include sheds, garages, and small open structures such as gazebos and swimming pools. Accessory buildings must be in the rear yard.
The changes proposed are intended to do several things:
  • Address concerns expressed by the public on the size and height limitations for a single accessory building, which many felt were restrictive;
  • Reduce or simplify the number of calculations required for installing accessory buildings;
  • Include accessory building limitations for the larger lot zones that do not presently exist;
  • Impose new standards for accessory buildings on properties in the both MXT and HD zones to approximate those of residential properties in order to maintain their residential character,
  • Allow for a second story on accessory buildings where it can be determined by the Board of Appeals that a second story would not be contrary to the public interest.
The proposed changes will affect the size of the accessory building, but not the use of the accessory building. Zoning Text Amendment TXT2019-00255, which proposes to allow Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) in accessory buildings, is a separate application and will be reviewed at a later date.  
The community is welcome to attend and testify the following meeting:
  • Monday October 7, 2019, at 7:00 p.m. in the Mayor and Council Chambers at City Hall, 111 Maryland Avenue.  This meeting will be a public hearing on the text amendment before the Mayor and Council to review staff’s additional recommended changes made since the previous public hearing and consider additional input from the community. 
For additional information, contact Nicole Walters, Project Planner at 240-314-8215. Application files are available for public review Monday thru Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at City Hall, 111 Maryland Avenue, Rockville 20850. 
The proposed text amendment and additional background information may be found on the City’s web site at https://www.rockvillemd.gov/DocumentCenter/View/35130/Final-Draft-ZTXT254
If you have any questions please contact Nicole Walters , Senior Planner in Planning and Development Services, at 240-314-8215  or nwalters@rockvillemd.gov.

Sincerely,

Hjarman Cordero
Senior Community Engagement Coordinator
