Public Property Naming and Commemoration Policy
The Mayor and Council adopted a Public Property Naming and Commemoration Policy to guide decision making about naming new City-owned property, renaming existing City-owned property and commemorating individuals who have made significant contributions to the City of Rockville. 

The Mayor and Council believe that the naming of public property such as buildings, bridges, stormwater management ponds, parks or features and spaces within these properties is a matter of great importance and deserves careful consideration. The Mayor and Council also believe that it is important to commemorate individuals who have made significant contributions to the City. 

If you would like to request the naming or renaming of City-owned property, or to commemorate an individual, please review the Policy and file your request with the City Clerk/Director of Council Operations at or City Clerk/Director of Council Operations Office, 111 Maryland Avenue, Rockville, MD 20850.
