If Rockville (Md.) city officials approve a proposal to waive the roadblock, crowded schools may no longer thwart development in the Rockville Town Center or in areas close to Metro stations.

Rockville's Council is considering adding provisions to standards relating to the city’s Adequate Public Facilities Ordinance (APFO) that would allow developers to apply for waivers for building in areas where school capacity would normally bar development. Reading a statement from The JBG Cos., Ballard Spahr real estate attorney Erica Leatham said the company is pleased Rockville is considering a “safety valve” to the APFO moratorium.
