- About Rockville
Rockville is regarded as one of America’s leading small cities for work, for play and for life. It is the vibrant, highly educated, business-friendly home to some of the nation’s and the world’s most prominent biomed and technology companies and is adjacent to the world's most powerful city, Washington, D.C.
Rockville is a city that remembers and reveres its roots, its commitment to citizen-centric public service, to the planet and to the connectivity of its neighborhoods and residents.
Rockville is a place one can truly and proudly call "my hometown." It is a place that looks and feels like home, where people and government work to maintain the intimacy and warmth that “hometown” connotes. A place where, despite our differences, neighbors know and care about each other and the community they share.
The 2016 survey, which was conducted by the National Research Center, randomly selected 3,000 residents to receive survey forms, 1,000 more residents than in prior years. The larger sample makes the survey more accurate.
Ninety-two percent of Rockville residents who responded to the city’s ninth biennial community survey once again described the city’s overall quality of life as excellent or good. Eighty-six percent of respondents rated the city’s overall quality of services as excellent or good.
