Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Held for New Public Safety Training Academy; Final Construction of a New Facility in Leggett’s Smart Growth Initiative
Montgomery County held the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Public Safety Training Academy (PTSA) on October 28. The new facility is located at 8751 Snouffer School Road in Gaithersburg.
The new PSTA is part of the Montgomery County Multi Agency Service Park (MASP). The opening marked the completion of the eighth project and final construction of a new facility in Leggett’s Smart Growth Initiative (SGI). County Executive introduced the SGI in 2008 to provide critically needed public facilities by leveraging County-owned land for use in job creation and in providing transit-oriented housing.
The former PSTA located at 9710 Great Seneca Highway in Rockville, was completed in 1973. Since then, the training needs of public safety agencies have shifted significantly. For more information on the PTSA Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.
