Description

The central portion of Montgomery County continues to experience population and economic growth. The 2010 White Flint Sector Plan, the 2017 Rock Spring Sector Plan, the 2018 White Flint 2 Sector Plan, and the 2018 Grosvenor-Strathmore Metro Area Minor Master Plan support this growth by creating livable communities that offer a range of benefits such as walkable neighborhoods and access to community facilities including parks. Specifically, these Plans focus on creating new parks with central gathering spaces and active recreational amenities to support the quality of life.

The dedication of land for a school and/or park site is one of the top priority public amenities to be provided by all development projects within these Plan areas. In lieu of dedication, the Planning Board may accept substantive contributions toward acquisition of new land to meet these master plan recommendations. Any Park Benefit Payments (PBPs) submitted to the M-NCPPC as a condition of Planning Board development approvals within these Plan areas will be placed into this Project for appropriation and expenditure.

The Park Benefit Payments will be used for acquisition of new parkland and the development of park facilities on newly acquired land to serve the White Flint, Grosvenor-Strathmore, and Rock Spring areas. These funds are intended to create new park resources, so will not be used not for the renovation/modification of existing parks. Funds that are allocated for planning, design, and construction of parks will be transferred to the appropriate development PDF within the CIP. Expenditures will be based on the park priorities within each of the Master/Sector Plan areas, availability of land for acquisition, site improvement needs, and the Parks Departments' design and construction schedule.

Justification

Chapters 50 (Subdivision Regulations) and 59 (Zoning Ordinance) of the Montgomery County Code require development/redevelopment to demonstrate substantial conformance with the Master or Sector Plan for approval. When site conditions preclude dedication of land needed for a school and/or park site, this Project will provide an alternative path for developments to achieve plan conformance while also implementing the vision for vibrant communities with ample public parks and associated amenities. This Project will serve to hold, appropriate and expend any Park Benefit Payments that are made to the M-NCPPC through the regulatory application review process under Chapters 50 and 59 to serve the park needs of any of these four Master/Sector Plan areas.
