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, 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."

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, the County will achieve cost savings, program efficiencies, and improved service to residents.

Other

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 moderately-priced dwelling units (MPDU), Work Force Housing Units (WFHU), and other affordable housing units out of a total 906 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.
