Agendas are available on the city’s website, RockvilleMD.gov.
Here are some highlights from tonight’s meeting:
Adoption: Resolution to allow 144 additional townhouses at King Farm
A resolution to build 144 more townhouse at King Farm is expected to go before the Mayor and Council on Monday.
The townhouses are proposed for the Irvington Center section of King Farm at a site previously approved for office development and would bring the total number of residences at King Farm to 3,344.
If the council votes to approve it, the developer’s site plan would have to be reviewed and approved by the Rockville Planning Commission.
Discussion: Adequate Public Facilities Ordinance, Adequate Public Facilities Standards
Rockville City Council is expected to discuss proposed revisions to the city's Adequate Public Facilities Ordinance, a set of laws attempting to balance growth with the city's ability to provide services to sustain the new developments.
The Mayor and Council have held several work sessions vetting whether changes were needed. Last month, two developers came forward with proposals to make the standards more flexible: AvalonBay Communities, the owners of a former warehouse at 12720 Twinbrook Parkway, has a pending site plan for redevelopment as a 240-unit development; the other is a prospective developer of a residential community near Tower Oaks in lieu of an already approved office development.
The council is expected to set a public hearing date.
