The City of Rockville, the third largest city in Maryland and located 12 miles northwest of the nation’s capital, is a vibrant community with a highly skilled, culturally diverse and engaged citizenry and a business-friendly economy with local and international roots. Rockville is one of the leading municipalities in Maryland that has made a commitment to achieve a more sustainable future that considers prosperity, planet, and people.
Rockville is embarking on a process to develop its first Climate Action Plan to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and prepare the community to adapt to a changing climate. Thus far, the City has reached out to the community through surveys, discussions with boards and commissions, and hosting a virtual open house to identify climate challenges and opportunities. The City is committed to a climate action planning process, plan, and policy decisions that incorporate social equity and consider residents that are most vulnerable to climate change.
