Description
This project provides for the County's estimated costs for a new regional recreation and aquatic center in the Central Business District of
Silver Spring. This project will include approximately 120,000 Gross Square Feet (GSF) of public recreation space within Housing
Opportunities Commission's (HOC's) larger housing project. The facility will include typical recreation and leisure activities such as pools for
swimming and low level diving, exercise, aquatic play, and high school competitions, training, and teaching. A gymnasium, exercise and
weight room spaces, movement and dance studios, multipurpose activity rooms, public use space, and social space with a culinary arts
kitchen will also be included. Senior programs will be coordinated with Holy Cross Hospital's "Senior Source."
Location
This amenity will be located on the Elizabeth Square site, bordered by Apple Avenue to the south and Fenwick Lane to the north, with the
CSX railroad right-of-way on the west.
Estimated Schedule
Construction is anticipated to begin in Fall/Winter 2017, with a phased completion of construction allowing for aquatics programming in late
2019 and community and senior center programming in late 2021.
Justification
This project has been included in long range planning by the County in its Montgomery County Recreation Facility Development Plan, 2010-
2030 as one of four regional recreation facilities to serve the County. This plan is based on the results of the County's Vision 2030
assessment, completed and published in 2011. The Southern Region, around the Greater Silver Spring Area was found to be significantly
under served for recreation and park amenities when compared against total population. Only two smaller community recreation centers,
one small indoor pool, and one seasonal outdoor pool serve this area currently and no services are available in downtown Silver Spring.
The project achieves a County goal of co-locating affordable housing with other County services. Through co-location, we will achieve cost
savings, program efficiencies, and improved service to residents.

South County Regional Recreation and Aquatic Center (P721701)
The Elizabeth Square Development project is a Public-Private Partnership between Housing Opportunities Commission (HOC) and Lee
Development Group. The proposed plan is to redevelop the existing Elizabeth House, a senior Public Housing property, and a substantial
renovation of Alexander House Apartments, a mixed-income multifamily property, in downtown Silver Spring. At full completion of the
redevelopment, Elizabeth Square Development will provide for a combined 326 moderate price dwelling units (MPDU), Work Force Housing
Units (WFHU), and other affordable housing units out of a total 846 units, with the inclusion of the new aquatic and recreational facility
within the footprint of the larger construction. Housing costs are not a part of this project.
Fiscal Note
The County's contribution will pay for the design of the recreation and aquatic center facility, tenant fit-out, furniture, fixtures, and equipment
for the new facility, and staff time during design and construction. FY17 Supplemental appropriation of $3,800,000 was approved for this
project.
Coordination
Housing Opportunity Commission, Silver Spring Regional Services Center, Department of Permitting Services, Department of General
Services, Department of Recreation, Department of Technology Services, M-NCPPC, WSSC, Pepco.
