Public Hearings

In the 1780s, the community was known as Williamsburgh, named for the family that subdivided the central part of town, when Rockville was little more than a cluster of homes, a tavern, a courthouse and a jail.

In 1801, the Maryland General Assembly officially established the name of the town as "Rockville" because of its location close to Rock Creek. 

Today, what happens in the City of Rockville does not necessarily stay in the City of Rockville. The decisions made by the mayor and city council impact school overcrowding and traffic congestion in the county.

The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) is a bi-county agency empowered by the State of Maryland in 1927 to acquire, develop, maintain and administer a regional system of parks within Montgomery and Prince George's Counties, and to provide land use planning for the physical development of Prince George's and Montgomery counties. In addition, the agency gained responsibility for the public recreation program in Prince George's County in 1970.
