East Rockville Design Guidelines & Standards
New! Review and Comment on the Draft Document
|July 22, 2020||Planning Commission Review and Discussion|
The agenda will be posted here one week prior to the meeting and will include the staff report, draft zoning text amendment, and the design guidelines and standards draft document.
Along with a design consultant, planning staff has worked in partnership with residents over the past year to identify issues, determine goals and establish design guidance for new single-unit homes and expansions to existing homes within the East Rockville neighborhood.
The intent of the project is to promote complementary and context-sensitive development between new and existing structures, while also allowing creative design.
The project builds on recommendations from the 2004 East Rockville Neighborhood Plan to develop a guide for new construction that enhances both the physical and environmental aspects of the neighborhood.
Current residents with no plans to rebuild or expand their residences will not be affected by the changes.
