Why New Mark Commons?

[From http://www.rocknet.org/community/newmark/overview.php]

New Mark Commons is a quiet and secluded neighborhood located within the city limits of Rockville, Maryland.

New Mark Commons, ideally located near I-270, Town Center, and the Rockville Metro Station, was incorporated in 1967 and has 384 homes, including 186 Single Family Units and 198 Townhouses. Home styles range from contemporary to colonial, skillfully designed to take advantage of New Mark’s naturally wooded environment. Community amenities include a lake, swimming pool, tennis courts, clubhouse, bike paths and a tot lot. Walking is a favorite pastime, and neighbors frequently stop to chat with one another.

Residents of New Mark Commons are spoiled by the quiet tranquility of tree-lined streets, extensive biking and walking paths, a private lake, and close proximity to I-270 (Maryland's Technology Corridor), the Capital Beltway, and the Rockville Metro station.

The community has a full-time administrator who serves as an on-site property manager. In addition, there is a seven-member volunteer Board of Directors. Meetings are held the first Thursday of every month and are open to all residents. Every homeowner is required to join the Association, and dues are collected semiannually.

Architectural Control Guidelines help to preserve New Mark’s unique architectural style, and a three-member architectural control

committee reviews all requests for exterior modifications. Additional volunteer committees oversee activities relating to landscaping, the pool, the lake, and property maintenance.

Several social functions are held throughout the year, and a newsletter is published monthly (except for August and December). In addition, New Mark’s youth actively participate in the summer Montgomery County Swim League.

Located in the Richard Montgomery school district, students are able to take advantage of the International Baccalaureate (IB) program and the Middle School that serves New Mark places students in that program by default and are automatically accepted in the IB program at Richard Montgomery High School.

The new Rockville Town Center provides shops, restaurants and special events, as well as special activities during the year. This is within walking distance of New Mark, as it the local Rockville Metro.

The New Mark Commons community is a quiet place to raise a family, with walking path, tennis courts, swimming and playground facilities. In addition, the pool sponsors a swim team that is active every year, and the clubhouse is available for special events and parties.
