VisArts posts signage at former Cloud 9 space in Rockville Town Square (Photos)

VisArts has made its use of the former Cloud 9 boutique space at Rockville Town Square a bit more formal. While it has been making use of the space for several weeks, there is now VisArts signage on the storefront.


  1. Is VisArts paying for this space or is it another freebee provided by the City of Rockville at taxpayer expense? So far VisArts has cost Rockville City taxpayers $14M.

  2. The Planning Commission members are appointed by the Mayor and Council. Its obvious the Planning Commission takes a very anti-growth approach to each and every new development plan that it reviews. Some of the members are so openly against any type of new development, it makes you wonder how and why they serve on the Commission other than to actively oppose new projects. The Planning Commission spends more time bickering over mindless issues its no wonder citizens of Rockville are beginning to take notice. For example, they have spent an inordinate amount of time and money on the Rockville Pike plan and continue to delay its unfolding. I think its time to hold the City Council accountable for appointing individuals to the Commission who put their own individual priorities and agendas ahead of the citizens of Rockville. All you have to do is spend 15 minutes watching these "Commissioners" at work and you will understand this perspective. Several of the commissioners simply like to hear themselves prognosticate on some of the most mindless and ridiculous issues (Leiderman). Its time for the Council to begin appointing more balanced, knowledgeable individuals to the Commission who will not continuously put their own personal agendas ahead of the citizens.
