Scheduled Topics for Public Comment


Notice is hereby given that the Mayor and Council of Rockville, Maryland, will conduct a public hearing on Monday, December 10, 2018, at 7:00 p.m., or as soon thereafter as it may be heard, in the Mayor and Council Chambers, Rockville City Hall, 111 Maryland Avenue, Rockville, Maryland, in connection with a proposed new Chapter 7.5 of the Rockville City Code entitled “Development Rights and Responsibilities Agreements.”

The Mayor and Council of Rockville are inviting testimony on the proposed new Chapter 7.5 of the Rockville City Code. The proposed code provisions will authorize the Mayor and Council to enter into Development Rights and Responsibilities Agreements (DRRAs), and will establish guidelines and requirements for DRRAs, as well as the process to approve any proposed DRRA. A DRRA is an agreement between the Mayor and Council of Rockville and a person having a legal or equitable interest in real property to establish conditions under which development of the real property may proceed. The key feature of the proposed legislation is that certain local laws, rules and regulations, and policies are “frozen” at the time the DRRA is executed for a defined period. In exchange for “freezing” certain laws, the proposed legislation requires that a developer provide an enhanced public benefit to the City. Changes to the proposed ordinance may be made following the public hearing. 

Copies of the proposed ordinance can be found at the City Clerk’s Office at Rockville City Hall. The proposed ordinance may also be accessed via the City’s web site at: http://www.rockvillemd.gov/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Agenda/_09242018-2358. Written comments may be submitted to the City Clerk’s office at 111 Maryland Avenue, Rockville, Maryland 20850-2364. More detailed information can be found by contacting the City Clerk’s Office at 240-314-8280.

Persons wishing to testify at the hearing are requested to call the City Clerk’s office at 240-314-8280 by 4:00 pm on the date of the hearing to place their name of the speakers’ list.
