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.

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
