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

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

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.
