Program Description

  Community Access to Public Space

This program provides community organizations and public agencies with access to public schools and government facilities for community services, programs, and events. Services performed by staff in support of this function include: user education training; centralized scheduling of schools, M-NCPPC fields, libraries, regional service centers, County government meeting rooms, and the Silver Spring Civic Building; managing on-line customer facility requests; administering connectivity to the facility database for school and County staff; information and referral; and problem and conflict resolution. Working with MCPS staff, PTAs, and community-based committees in the implementation and review of facility use policies and procedures is an integral component of this program. This program also provides: 1.) general management and staff support to the Interagency Coordinating Board (ICB), which is CUPF's policy-making authority, and its Citizens' Advisory Committee; and 2.) administration for community use operations, including financial processes and budgeting for the Community Use Enterprise Fund. The County's General Fund supports limited free use of facilities to qualifying organizations in accordance with ICB policy.
