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.

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. 

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. 

FINAL 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, and Watkins Overlook.

The King Farm Neighbors Village (KFNV) Book Club met yesterday to discuss the book, Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell. Even though almost all on-line reviewers thought the novel was very well written with an interesting story, many of the KFNV members felt the book was a bit boring with too much description and not enough action. 

Other KFNV events in June and July are:


1.      On Tuesday, June 18, 2024 from 7:00-9:00 pm, the KFNV will host its monthly Games Night. Come out and enjoy some competitive fun with your King Farm neighbors. You do not have to be a member of the KFNV to join in the fun. The KFNV will provide various board games, but you are welcome to bring your own game(s) as well. In addition, please bring your own snacks and drinks to nibble on and sip as you play your favorite board game. 

2.     On Thursday, June 20, 2024 from 1:00-3:00 pm, the KFNV Friends Club will host its monthly luncheon at Farmsook Happiness Thai Kitchen, 800 King Farm Boulevard, Rockville, Maryland. Please come and enjoy lunch and conversation with your fellow King Farmers. All residents of King Farm are invited as membership in the KFNV is not a requirement to participate in the luncheon. Finally, please note that this is a KFNV Friends meet-up and everyone is responsible to pay for their own lunch.

3.      On Wednesday, June 26, 2024, KFNV will host Coffee and Conversation from 10:00-11:30 am. Please come out and enjoy light refreshments and engaging conversation with your fellow King Farmers. The discussion topic will be: What is your favorite hobby or activity that you enjoy?  Feel free to bring examples of your hobby or activity.

4.      On Thursday, June 27, 2024 from 7:00-8:30 pm, the KFNV will host in the King Farm Community Center a presentation: “Introduction to Sign Language,” by Betsy Marcus and Sue Spector. Ms. Marcus received her Master’s Degree in American Sign Language (ASL) Interpretation from Gallaudet University, Washington, DC, and has been an ASL interpreter for Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) for over 30 years.  Ms. Spector, a retired MCPS elementary teacher and one of the KFNV Board members, was trained in ASL by Ms. Marcus and used ASL with her second grade students. The KFNV invites all King Farmers to this event, as membership is not a requirement to attend this presentation. The KFNV hopes to see many King Farmers at this educational event as we learn together about the deaf culture and language.

5.      The Walking Club continues 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.



The KFNV is excited to announce its first ever baseball game outing.   The particulars are:

The KFNV continues to support King Farm residents with its community services: transportation to appointments, simple household tasks, friendly phone calls/texts, and friendly visits. 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. Our Operations Team will get back to you to determine if the task is under our umbrella of tasks. Also, please note that services are open to KFNV members only; however, membership is free and an easy process. See below on how to contact the KFNV to schedule any of the services or with any questions that you may have about the services as well as how to become a KFNV member.


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. Volunteers are an important part of the KFNV.

Please feel free to contact the Operations Coordinator for any questions you may have  about becoming a KFNV volunteer  by calling (301) 799-8104,  emailing to kfnvinfo@gmail.com , or viewing  the KFNV website at www.kfnv.org for information as well as an on-line form to fill out to become a KFNV volunteer. The KFNV thanks you for your consideration in becoming a KFNV volunteer.

Contacting the KFNV

For most of the KFNV monthly events as well as the services, membership is required; but membership is as easy as filling out an on-line or mail-in form with residency in the King Farm community being the only membership requirement.  We are a multi-generational Village; therefore, there is no age requirement to join the KFNV. The KFNV welcomes all King Farm residents of all ages.

Although there is no fee to become a KFNV member, the KFNV does, however, accept and welcome donations; for these donations help defray the cost of KFNV services and events.

For information on how to register for any of the above events, to request a service or a ride, to become a KFNV member or a volunteer, or to make a donation, please contact the Operations Coordinator by calling (301) 799-8104 to  leave a voicemail,  emailing the KFNV at kfnvinfo@gmail.com , or viewing the KFNV website at  www.kfnv.org.

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
