Board of Appeals

The Board is comprised of three members and one alternate, who are charged with the responsibility of hearing and deciding all administrative appeals and applications for variances and special exceptions, as provided for in the Zoning Ordinance or other ordinances of the City of Rockville. Members elect their own chairperson and serve for overlapping three-year terms.

Under Maryland Law, decisions on quasi-judicial matters must be based on information provided in the public record (written or oral testimony). Therefore no communication should be held outside of the public hearing. The city maintains a list of development applications subject to the limitations on ex parte communications.

Contact the Board of Appeals by email at Board.Appeals@rockvillemd.gov

Meetings are open to the public and televised live on Rockville Channel 11.
