11651 Nebel Street, Rockville MD 20852


The population of the Pre-Release Center (PRC) varies from approximately 130 to 167 residents and a staff of 68 employees operating in shifts

Estimated Schedule

Design will begin in Winter 2016. Construction will begin in Spring 2018.

Cost Change

The cost change is due to the decision to provide for full renovation and addition rather than just kitchen equipment replacement and electrical and ventilation upgrades.


The kitchen within the PRC was built in 1978. The kitchen was originally designed for 100 residents, but now serves an average of 150 and is projected to reach 171 within 20 years. There has not been any update of the kitchen and related food service and food storage areas since 1978.

Fiscal Note

This project is eligible for State funding of up to 50 percent of project costs.


A pedestrian impact analysis will be performed during design or is in progress.

The Executive asserts that this project conforms to the requirements of relevant local plans, as required by the Maryland Economic Growth, Resource Protection and Planning Act.
