Rockville Mayor & Council to hold closed session on Rockville Town Center business location proposal

Rockville's Mayor & Council will meet in a closed session to discuss a significant business proposal related to the Rockville Town Center area on Wednesday, April 6, 2022 at 11:00 AM. The stated purpose of the meeting is to "consider a matter that concerns the proposal for a business or industrial organization to locate, expand, or remain in the Town Center area of the City." This would likely be a matter that involves legal advice and/or a financial outlay by the city, such as an incentive payment tied to job creation, or to convince an existing company to stay. 

The city needs a win in the Town Center area, after Choice Hotels announced it planned to move down Rockville Pike to Pike & Rose, despite Rockville going to great lengths to bring the lodging giant to Town Center a little over a decade ago. Alas, closed session means we won't know yet which business entity, and what proposal(s), are being discussed until a later date.
