Rockville Pike Neighborhood Plan
Rockville Pike Neighborhood Plan (adopted 2016)
Planning Area 9 and part of 1

The 2016 Rockville Pike Neighborhood Plan is an update to a portion of the City’s 2002 Comprehensive Master Plan (CMP) and replaces the previous 1989 Rockville Pike Neighborhood Corridor Plan. The plan’s focus is the creation of a vibrant and comfortable mixed-use environment, more dense than existing suburban development, supported by high-quality public amenities and facilities, and complemented by a transportation network that will better support pedestrians, bicyclists, drivers, and transit riders. It takes advantage of Rockville’s position as Montgomery County’s seat of government and its role as a population and jobs center within the county and the region, but retains a distinctive identity for Rockville.

It is bounded on the north by Richard Montgomery Drive and on the south by the City’s corporate limits, near Bou Avenue. Boundaries on the western side include Wootton Parkway, the Woodmont Country Club and East Jefferson Street. The eastern boundary is the Metrorail right-of-way.
