This project is part of the Smart Growth Initiative program and provides for a comprehensive feasibility study and planning for the relocation of the Montgomery County Public Schools Bus Depot from the County Service Park on Crabbs Branch Way.


In order to implement the County's Shady Grove Sector Plan which would capitalize on the existing investment in mass transit by creating a transit-oriented development community, the County Service Park must be relocated. Relocation of the facilities at the County Service Park will enable the County to realize both the transit oriented development intended for the area and address unmet needs. The County is faced with aging facilities that require extensive investment of funds to meet our needs. With the age of some of the facilities, the extent of the required investment must be weighed against the long-term ability of the facilities to satisfy current and future County needs. Plans and studies for this project include: M-NCPPC Shady Grove Sector Plan, approved by the Montgomery County Council, January 2006, adopted by the M-NCPPC, March 15, 2006; Montgomery County Property Use Study Updated Briefing to County Council , April 29, 2008 (based on Staubach Reports); Montgomery County Smart Growth Initiative Update to County Council , September 23, 2008.


The project provides for only the planning phase. Final construction costs will be determined during the design development phase. The Executive must notify the Council and the Board of Education in writing ten days before transferring funds from any other CIP project into this project. The Executive must describe the expected use of the transferred funds.
