The main difference is that HDC design review and approval is not required for changes to properties listed only on the National Register. Often the HDC does review proposed changes and offer suggestions so the alterations will not have an adverse effect on the resource. National Register listing also protects properties from any federally sponsored impacts. Most districts in Rockville have both designations.
