Montgomery Village Board of Directors Move Forward With Restrooms, Concession in South Valley Park

South Valley Park restrooms and concessions move forward.

Last evening the MVF Board voted unanimously to approve the two Memo’s Of Understanding between the MVF and MVSA (Montgomery Village Sports Association.

This will allow the project to move into the next phase of design, then onto construction.

The location had already been chosen at the MVF meeting in April. 

The Maryland State Grant for this project will pay for one half of the project up to the matching amount of $125,000.

We cannot thank the State for their support of this effort enough. The project was first discussed in 1999, and then shelved until a year ago. At which time various sites were discussed and a final site directly behind the backstop of the base ball diamond.

It is time to scrap plans for building the controversial $250,000 South Valley Restroom and Concession stand, awarded a $125,000 state grant under false pretenses, and shake off the egregious state imposed conditions and strings attached to awarding the grant. 1. Governor O’Malley expects State funds to be spent on union labor because, he said, “... in our State we believe that stronger unions make for a stronger middle class.” 2. Demanded by the State, an MOU indemnity clause places the Montgomery Village Sports Association (MVSA) above Village residents in direct violation of MVF Board member fiduciary responsibility.

It has been a year since the state approved the Bond Bond award to $125,000 for the South Valley Restroom and Concession Stand. However, the facts surrounding this project are unknown to Village residents For now I would settle for the following: statement of scope (one or two restrooms?), budget, actual cost expended to date, expected cost at completion, scheduled date of completion, milestones, and risks outside of MVF control.
