Rockville General Plan
A general plan must reflect the attitudes and desires of the community in order to be an effective guide for growth.
The general plan is the official statement of the Town’s governing body which sets forth its major policies concerning desirable future development. It is a guide for decision-making and the legal basis for land-use ordinances.
The Town of Rockville was incorporated as a municipality on June 30, 1987. This step was taken in order to establish and protect the unique identity of the community and to exercise greater control over the Town’s future growth and development. In 1988 the Town prepared a general plan. The plan was tangible evidence of the community’s desire to define the community’s goals and how best to achieve them.
The Town regularly conducts surveys of residents and adjusts the general plan with the findings if necessary. The most current update to the general plan was completed in November of 2020.
