And while some Bethesda Beat commenters continue to contend that North Bethesda is a southern apportionment of Rockville, local officials contend that’s not a case. North Bethesda’s bounds have been tangible in past county master skeleton and it’s a census-designated place firm by a southern apportionment of I-495, to a west by I-270, to a north by Rockville’s city boundary and to a easterly by Rock Creek Park. Rockville is an incorporated city, so the boundaries are defined.
