Breaking: Planning Board Staff Recommends Disapproval of 1000 Westmore Ave. as Bus Depot

On May 9, 2016, the Parents' Coalition broke the news that County Executive Ike Leggett wanted to purchase property in Rockville for use as a bus depot.  Leggett wanted the review of this land acquisition by the Montgomery County Planning department to be purely administrative. 

However, the full Planning Board will be taking up Leggett's plan in a public hearing on June 16, 2016, at 8:05 PM.

The Planning Board staff has just released their recommendation for Leggett's plan and their recommendation is that the Planning Board not approve the placement of a MCPS bus depot on Westmore Avenue in Rockville.

The Planning Board staff notes that Leggett's plan for this site has no specifics with regard to the number of buses that would be transferred to this site, nor did Leggett supply the Planning Board any site selection study or analysis.
