Description

This project is part of the Smart Growth Initiative program and provides for a comprehensive feasibility study and planning for the relocation of the Montgomery County Public Schools Bus Depot from the County Service Park on Crabbs Branch Way. Previous plans to acquire several sites for MCPS bus parking facilities to accommodate displaced buses when the site is redeveloped have been put on hold until an agreement can be reached on a project plan. It also includes staff supervision, consultant costs, demolition of existing improvements, and environmental clean up of the east side of Crabbs Branch Way.

Estimated Schedule

Environmental clean up of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission facilities occurred in FY17, and demolition was completed in FY19. A search for a replacement site for the MCPS bus depot and maintenance facility has identified the County-owned property housing the current Montgomery County Detention Center (MCDC) and the former 1st District Police Station as an appropriate location. This project cannot begin until the Criminal Justice Center replacing the MCDC and the Restoration Center projects on the site are completed.

Cost Change

Funding in the Beyond 6 years is a placeholder for the construction of a new bus depot.

Justification

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. The County is faced with aging facilities that require extensive investment of funds to meet our needs. With the age of some of the facilities, the extent of the required investment must be weighed against the long-term ability of the facilities to satisfy current and future County needs. Plans and studies for this project include: M-NCPPC Shady Grove Sector Plan, approved by the Montgomery County Council, January 2006, adopted by the M-NCPPC, March 15, 2006; Montgomery County Property Use Study Updated Briefing to County Council , April 29, 2008 (based on Staubach Reports); Montgomery County Smart Growth Initiative Update to County Council , September 23, 2008.
