LEGISLATIVE REQUEST REPORT
Expedited Bill 26-15
Special Capital Improvements Project MCPS and MNCPPC Maintenance Facilities Relocation
DESCRIPTION:
The County Executive requests that capital project No. 361109,
MCPS
&
M-NCPPC Maintenance Facilities Relocation is authorized
as a "Special Capital Improvements Project" pursuant to Section
&302 of the County Charter and Section §20-1 of the Montgomery
County Code.
Section §302 of the County Charter and Section §20-1 of the County
Code require certain capital improvement projects to be individually
authorized by law if the locally-funded cost is projected to exceed
$14,431,000 in FY16 dollars. The estimated locally-funded cost of
this project in the FY16 Capital Budget and FY15-20 Capital
Improvements Program is $69,039,000 for planning, design, land,
and construction costs.
This project provides for the planning, design, and construction of
MCPS
&
M-NCPPC Maintenance Facilities Relocation. In order to
implement the County's Shady Grove Sector Plan which would
capitalize on the existing investment in mass transit by creating a
transit-oriented development community, the County Service Park
must be relocated. Relocation of the facilities at the County Service
Park will enable the County
to
realize both the transit-oriented
development intended for the area and address unmet needs.
This project has been coordinated with the Department of General
Services, Department of Transportation, Montgomery County Public
Schools, Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission,
Department of Permitting Services, Department of Finance,
Department of Technology Services, Office of Management and
Budget, Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission, Pepco,
Upcounty Regional Services Center, and Washington Gas.
Not Applicable.
The planned facilities will meet the current and projected
maintenance facility needs while also furthering the County's transit­
oriented development goals.
Capital projects are evaluated biennially by the County Executive and
County Council as part of the Capital Improvements Program review.
Not Applicable.
