This project funds preparation of local park master plans, concept plans, and park management plans; archaeological, engineering and environmental studies; topographic, natural resource, and forest conservation surveys; utility studies; feasibility studies, and facility plans. Facility plans produce well-reasoned project cost estimates based on preliminary design, i.e. 30 percent of final design and construction documents. Preliminary design includes topographic surveys, environmental assessments, traffic studies, site plans, schematic drawings, floor plans, elevations, quantity calculations, and cost estimates, as well as public participation. Facility planning is needed when the variables or options involved in the project do not support reliable independent cost estimating

Cost Change

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


2012 Parks, Recreation, and Open Space (PROS) Plan, approved by the Montgomery County Planning Board. There is a continuing need for the development of accurate cost estimates and an exploration of alternatives for proposed facility projects. Future projects which result from facility planning programmed in this PDF will reflect reduced planning and design costs. Individual area master plans.


Expenditures will continue indefinitely
