The developer of 1900 Chapman Avenue, a delayed project with an extension due to expire this August, is formally requesting a rules change that would lengthen extensions to a year.
Currently, the term is six months. The applicant is also requesting a change in how extension dates are calculated when a project is in an appeals process and/or litigation, as 1900 Chapman was.
City development staff are recommending approval of the changes, with conditions, at the March 11 meeting of the Rockville Planning Commission. The public will be allowed to testify for or against the proposed changes at the meeting, which will be held at 7:00 PM at City Hall.
