facilities impact statements with certain capital projects in the Capital Improvements Program
and authorize the Council to require other County departments and agencies to supplement the
impact statements furnished by the Office of Management and Budget. The impact statement
must analyze the feasibility of including a child care facility in the project.
The demand for good child care facilities exceeds supply in the County. The potential for
including child care facilities in each County Capital Improvements Program projects is not
routinely assessed. The purpose of the Bill is to ensure that the County takes advantage of all
opportunities to include child care facilities in County capital projects.
