Individuals and groups are invited to provide input into the County’s next six-year capital construction budget by attending upcoming public forums being held throughout July. The forums will help define construction and planning priorities for the various regions in the County as officials begin developing the Fiscal Years 2013 to 2018 Capital Improvements Program (CIP) budget.
The CIP includes costs for new or renovated major projects such as roads, public schools, Montgomery College facilities, water and sewer lines, parks, libraries, health and recreation facilities, and other public buildings and projects.
The schedule for the remaining forums is listed below:
- Bethesda-Chevy Chase – Monday, July 18, 7 p.m. Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center, 4805 Edgemoor La. 240-777-8200;
- Mid-County – Tuesday, July 19, 7 p.m. Mid-County Regional Services Center, 2424 Reedie Dr., Wheaton. 240-777-8100; and
- Eastern County – Wednesday, July 20, 7 p.m. Eastern Montgomery Regional Services Center, 3300 Briggs Chaney Rd., Silver Spring. 240-777-8400.
Suggestions and comments from participants will be considered by the regional citizen advisory boards for inclusion in the funding priority lists they submit to the County Executive. The lists will also be shared with County departments and agencies for their consideration as they formulate the CIP for their departments.
