East Rockville Neighborhood Plan
The Pump House at Croydon Park
East Rockville Neighborhood Plan (adopted 2004)
Planning Area 2

East Rockville is a residential neighborhood located in the northeastern section of Rockville bounded by the Rockville Metro Station and Stonestreet Avenue corridor on the west, Veirs Mill Road on the south, First Street on the east, and the Lincoln Park neighborhood and Southlawn industrial area to the north. The community consists primarily of single-family homes and includes two small commercial centers, three parks and a forest preserve. Historic homes dating from the late 1800s line Baltimore Road, but the majority of houses were built beginning in the 1940s during the building boom that occurred in the City after World War II.

The East Rockville Neighborhood Plan was adopted by the Mayor and Council on March 8, 2004. A Neighborhood Plan Advisory Group, working with City staff, developed the new plan to replace the Croydon Park Neighborhood Plan, which dates from 1982.

Design Guidelines for Residential Infill
Based on recommendations in the 2004 Plan and increasing development pressures over the past decade, the East Rockville Civic Association has expressed interest in exploring design guidelines for the neighborhood.  Planning staff met with Civic Association members in February and discussed different topics that could be included in the guidelines.  Below are links to the design guidelines presentation and survey from the February Civic Association Meeting.
