The City has contracted with Tito Contractor to repair the pedestrian bridge that provides access from Creek Valley Lane to Barnside Place in the King Farm Community.  The work is anticipated to start weather permitting on/or about Monday 4/15/24.  The work is anticipated to be completed within two weeks of the start date.  The work that is scheduled will require the City to close the pedestrian bridge to all public access for the two week period, therefore a detour map has been attached.  The contractor will post Notice Signs this week as well as the detour map on each end of the bridge.

Landscaping – Growing Pains

As announced at the end of 2023, King Farm Citizens Assembly switched landscaping companies. The new company is Level Green. As with any change, it was expected that Level Green, the new landscape company (and its crew members), would require time to learn the intricacies of King Farm. King Farm is a large and complex community with the

At the start of every mowing season in April, crews normally experience challenges due to inconsistent weather patterns. This year is no different. During the first week of the mowing season, it rained 4 out of the 5 days. Completing week two, Level Green (the new landscaping company) is playing catch up while learning the community. Despite the challenges, Management is working with the vendor to address the issues identified by the community and Management. Since this is the first full week mowing in King Farm, we ask for your patience and understanding as we work with the vendor to correct the identified issues. We expect to see a marked improvement in the upcoming weeks ahead. As Level Green continues to learn and move through the season, there will be less growing pains and a better understanding of the community and the standard King Farm expects.

If you have specific concerns, please email management@kingfarm.org. We appreciate your patience and understanding.


Bring a blanket or a lawn chair as King Farm movies on the lawn kicks off with a new family favorite, Wonka, will be playing on the big movie screen on Saturday, April 27, 2024 at 8:30 p.m. The movie, rated PG, will start promptly at 8:30 p.m. on the Saddle Ridge Circle lawn area adjacent to the Saddle Ridge Community Center.


Get ready for the return of Casino Night in King Farm with a special Kentucky Derby/Cinco de Mayo theme! Join your neighbors (ages 21 and over only) on Saturday, May 4, 2024 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Saddle Ridge Community Center (300 Saddle Ridge Circle).

Fiesta inspired food and beverages will be served, and all the major casino tables will be set up for neighbors who enjoy Blackjack, Poker, Roulette and Craps. Come dressed in your Derby best (fabulous hats encouraged for all!!!) and get ready to cheer on the winner for the big run to the roses!

Due to space limitations, advanced registration is required. This event is open to King Farm residents only, sorry NO non-resident guests. Space is limited to the first 65 people to register. Once registration is full, the online system will close down. 


Periodic exterior inspections of the homes/lots in King Farm are important for ensuring all property owners are maintaining their home/lot in accordance with the governing documents. These maintenance standards contribute to enhancing curb appeal and property values.

HOA Inspections USA, an independent inspection company, will take photos of homes as part of the inspection process. The photographer will be identifiable by their colored safety vest. The photographer will be using cameras to take photos of homes from common/public areas. The photographer will not discuss what issues may be cited for yours or anyone else’s property.


Take a moment to look at the exterior of the home and determine if maintenance is needed. Some maintenance may need to be performed annually depending on sun exposure, moisture, grading of soil, shade, and other factors. Be sure to review the Equity Resolutions #6 (Landscaping) and #9 (Exterior Maintenance). Click the “Inspections Are In Progress” header to obtain more information.

Please plan ahead with maintenance projects. If you are traveling, make arrangements to maintain your landscaping through the growing season. This is especially important during the spring and summer months because landscape maintenance can easily get unruly. Also, please remember to email the On-Site Management Team the contact information for your management company (if hired).  If you have an alternate contact while you are on travel or your contact information changes while on travel, pleas keep us informed. Homeowners are responsible for ensuring their lot is properly maintained even while away. However, if there extenuating circumstances, please contact Management Team as soon as possible at 301-987-0122 or management@kingfarm.org.   

If maintenance items are identified, a notice from HOA Inspections USA will be sent via USPS mail. Email notifications will NOT be sent for the initial notice. The initial notice will provide a compliance date to bring the noted items into compliance. 


Initial Notices have been sent to properties located on the following streets:

Bonnibelle Place, Dunloggin Drive, Game Creek Drive, Heritage Fields Way, Landis Way, Lawson Way, Rolling Fields Way, Silver King Lane, Treemont Way, Trotter Farm Drive, Shorthorn Way, Pasture Side Place, Saddle Ridge Circle, Watkins Overlook, Crooked Creek Drive, Garden View Square, Pasture Side Way, Pure Spring Crescent and Ridgemont Avenue. 

If the items are not brought into compliance by the comply date,

then a Final Notice/ Intent to Hold Hearing will be sent via USPS mail, email (if available) and posted to the property address door. 

If you have any questions or to report resolved maintenance items, please contact the Management Office at 301-987-0122 or management@kingfarm.org.

At this annual meeting, the KFNV Board of Directors discussed the KFNV’s past year of growth and activities and events for the next year. The last KFNV event for April is Coffee and Conversation on Wednesday, April 24, 2024 from 10:00-11:30 am where participants will enjoy light breakfast refreshments and discuss the topic: What do you enjoy about aging?

            The KFNV will start the lovely month of May with the following activities.

  1. The Walking Club will continue its strolls Monday-Thursday at 4 pm, except in the case of inclement weather. The group meets in the park across from The Fontina Grille.
  2. On Thursday, May 2, 2024 from 2:00-3:00 pm, the KFNV Movie Club will review the Academy Award winning film, Oppenheimer, the 2023 biographical thriller about J.

  3. On Thursday, May 9, 2024, from 12:30-2:00 pm, the KFNV member Book Club will discuss the novel, The Paris Daughter, by Kristin Harmel.  This historical fiction novel tells the wrenching story of two young mothers during World War II in Europe.

Please note that the monthly Movie Club, Book Club, Coffee and Conversation gatherings, and many highlight events are held at the King Farm Community Center, 300 Saddle Ridge Circle, Rockville, MD 20850.  In case of inclement weather and if there is time to notify participants, the KFNV may opt for a Zoom presentation for any meeting or event.  Finally, the KFNV offers transportation to many of its monthly events for KFNV members. Please contact the Operations Coordinator at kfnvinfo@gmail.com, or leave a voicemail at (301) 799-8104 to arrange for transportation.

Please feel free to avail yourself of all of the community services that the KFNV offers. If you are in doubt about whether a task could be performed by one of the KFNV volunteers, go ahead and fill out the service form on the KFNV website.

The KFNV is always looking for a “few good volunteers” to provide community services to its members like drives to appointments, friendly visits, and help with simple household tasks.

RCPD’s Community Policing Shows Results as Crime Rates Decline

The Rockville City Police Department’s commitment to community policing resulted in reduced crime rates for 2023, RCPD Chief Victor V. Brito told the Mayor and Council in presenting a crime report with data that contrasts with that of other municipalities across the country. 

While criminality has risen locally, regionally and nationally since 2020, “Virtually all of our data and all of our crime has been down in the last year,” Brito said in giving an overview of the report to the Mayor and Council on Feb. 26. “And that’s not through happenstance or reverse osmosis. That’s through the hard work and selfless dedication of the men and women of the Rockville City Police Department.” 

Each year, the department prepares a crime report under the FBI’s National Incident-Based Reporting System. 

Overall, between 2022 and 2023, crimes against people, which include homicides, assaults and sex offenses, decreased 10.6%, from 501 offenses in 2022 to 448 offenses in 2023. 

Crimes against property, including burglaries, robberies, thefts and vandalism, increased by 1.7% (from 1,831 to 1,862). While the number of carjackings is rising locally, regionally and nationally, Rockville saw a 68% decrease, from eight in 2022 to three in 2023. 

Crimes against society, including drugs, prostitution and weapons offenses, decreased 28.7%, from 129 to 92, including a 39.8% decrease in drug/narcotic violations. 

RCPD responded to almost 70% of the 25,139 calls for service in the city in 2023, alongside the Montgomery County Police Department’s First District Station and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. 

Recent changes could impact these numbers. The Montgomery County Department of Police’s recent decision to redeploy personnel assigned to the county’s First District to other areas of Montgomery County has led to an increase in the number of service calls handled by RCPD officers. RCPD responded to 88% of the calls within the city limits in January 2024, versus 71% of calls during the same period in January 2018, a pre-pandemic period used for comparison. 

Find video of the presentation to the Mayor and Council with the Feb. 26 meeting listing at www.rockvillemd.gov/AgendaCenter

The report will be included in an annual report published by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments this summer. Find it when it is posted this spring at www.rockvillemd.gov/police

RockView Program

If you have a ring camera (or other front door/doorbell camera), you can register it with the RCPD. The RockView program allows residents and business owners to voluntary register their privately owned video security camera systems with the RCPD. Registration in the RockView program does not enable law enforcement to view camera footage without an owner’s permission. However, the RockView program will allow city police to quickly identify security cameras that may have captured criminal activity when a crime is reported nearby. For more information about the RockView program, click here. 

If you have a crime or concern to report, please contact the Rockville City Police Department at:

Non-Emergency: 240-314-8900
Emergency: 9-1-1
