Description

This project provides the flexibility to construct various sub-projects that might otherwise be delayed for lack of funds or difficulty in acquiring right-of-way. This project provides for right-of-way acquisition and construction for storm drain projects resulting from the Drainage Assistance Request Program. Individual projects range from retrofitting existing storm drainage systems to developing new drainage systems required to upgrade the existing systems in older subdivisions. Projects formerly handled through the Neighborhood Storm Drain Improvements Project are usually small, unanticipated projects initiated by requests from citizens whose homes and properties are subject to severe flooding or erosion and where there is a demonstrated need for early relief. Potential new storm drain projects are studied under the Facility Planning: Storm Drain project. Concept studies are evaluated based on the following factors: public safety, damage to private property and frequency of event, damage to public right-of-way, environmental factors such as erosion, general public benefit, availability of right-of-way and 5:1 cost benefit damage prevented ratio. After the completion of facility planning, projects with construction estimated to cost less than $500,000 are included in this project. Prompt relief is frequently achieved by the use of Department of Transportation (DOT) personnel to construct and provide construction management. The project also facilitates financial participation with developers up to 50 percent share of construction cost for storm drainage projects where such construction would yield a public benefit to properties other than that of homeowner or developers. Right-of-way is acquired under the Advanced Land Acquisition Revolving Fund (ALARF).

Other

On Participation projects, cost sharing between the County and either homeowners or developers varies and is based upon a signed Letter of Understanding. Some funds from this project will go to support the Renew Montgomery program. Completed Projects in FY18 and FY19: Crown Street, Grafton Street, Lanier Drive, Ogden Court, Ashburton Lane, Mintwood Street, Woodland Drive, Charred Oak Drive, and Stable Lane. Potential Future projects: Tranford Road, Windmill Lane and Conway Road.

Fiscal Note

In FY19, Water Quality Protection Bonds were replaced with long-term financing based on the Maryland Water Quality Revolving Loan Fund (WQRLF) to finance water quality improvement projects with low-interest loans which are less costly than bond sales. Funding schedule reflects MDE's cost eligibility rules.
The FY21 appropriation has been programmed to cover both FY21 and FY22 project expenditures; consistent with past practice for this project.

Disclosures

A pedestrian impact analysis will be performed during design or is in progress. Expenditures will continue indefinitely. The County Executive asserts that this project conforms to the requirement of relevant local plans, as required by the Maryland Economic Growth, Resource Protection and Planning Act.
