In the early 1980s, concerns over development and other pressures caused residents to seek incorporation. Accordingly, a three-member Steering Committee was appointed to draft a Charter and to help the Council fulfill the requirements to become a municipality. In a Village-wide referendum for Martin’s Additions residents, 92 percent voted in favor of incorporation. Following approval by the Montgomery County Council (Resolution No. 10-11164, effective February 14, 1985), the State of Maryland recorded the municipal incorporation of the Village of Martin’s Additions on March 19, 1985. The Village’s first ordinances came into effect on July 9, 1989. For more detailed information about the history of the Village of Martin's Additions, please visit, our history page here.
