City and County Councils to Meet
Glenview Mansion and annexation of the Reed Brothers site are also on the agenda.
The meeting with the County Council is expected to include discussions of:
- Construction projects to alleviate crowding in Richard Montgomery cluster schools.
- Tax duplication reimbursement to the city by the county. The reimbursement covers services that the municipal government provides that would be provided by the county. Most significant for Rockville is reimbursement for road maintenance.
- Restoration, by the Maryland General Assembly, of highway user revenue. Municipalities use the revenue for road maintenance and small road improvement projects.
- Statewide stormwater management legislation, including the city’s stormwater utility fee.
- Parking at Rockville Memorial Library.
- County development along the city’s borders.
- Collaboration with Montgomery College.
- County curfew legislation.
- Joint meetings between the city and county councils on a regular basis.
The council’s consent agenda includes a proposal to award a $396,000 contract for streetlight maintenance to Lighting Maintenance, Inc. of Linthicum.
The council also will discuss historic district designation for Glenview Mansion at Rockville Civic Center Park. Staff is recommending that the council approve a map amendment ordinance. The ordinance would be introduced Oct. 17 for a vote on Oct. 24.
The agenda also includes three items regarding the annexation of the Reed Brothers site at 15955 Frederick Road. Silverwood/Shady Grove LLC is seeking to build a six-story 417-unit multifamily building with ground floor retail on the 4.3-acre property. The site is in the Gaithersburg High School cluster and is close to the Shady Grove Metro station.
The council would vote on adoption of a map amendment approving the annexation on Oct. 24. If approved, the annexation would take effect Nov. 24.
The meeting will be broadcast live on Rockville 11.
