This project provides for site selection for the following candidate projects: Clarksburg Library, Laytonsville Fire Station, Multi-User Central Warehouse, Damascus Depot Relocation, Clarksburg Community Recreation and Aquatic Center, and East County HHS Facility and other site selection activities such as appraisals, geotechnical services, environmental studies, and surveys. Other sites that could be considered for site selection analysis are the Silver Spring Community Recreation and Aquatic Center, Supply and Evidence Facility, and Land for Facility Reforestation.

Cost Change

Increase due to the addition of FY19 and FY20 to this ongoing project.


These funds will be used for site selection only. No land will be purchased without notice to the County Council that must include the reasons why the proposed site is appropriate for the specific project being planned, including the expected size of the facility and how the site is responsive to community needs. Any land acquisition will be funded initially through ALARF: MCG, then reimbursed by a future appropriation from the specific project. The County Executive will work with the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission staff to review future facility needs in master plans and department strategic plans to identify sites beyond those for projects in facility planning and the current CIP for acquisition.
