The Chevy Chase Village Board of Managers is committed to meaningful and wide-spread participation of Village residents in the governance of our community. Committees of residents serve as advisors to the Board. They provide a critical interface between the residents and the Board by generating a wealth of ideas, research and analysis for the policy initiatives that underlie good governance.
The Board relies on the support of two types of committees:
Standing Committees oversee the broad categories of Village governance, policy and resident enrichment. These are the Budget, Audit, Investment, Public Works, Public Safety, Emergency Preparedness, Traffic, Trees, Election, Parks & Green Space, Environment & Energy, Children, Youth & Families, and Seniors Committees.
ad hoc or Single Purpose Committees are dedicated to meeting a single, Board-referred objective and are of limited duration. The Board assignment defines the work of the committee and indicates whether the Board seeks advice whether to address a problem or issue facing the Village or advice on how to resolve a problem or issue.
To strengthen the role of Village committees and to ensure that their work is transparent and a model of democratic practice, the Board has adopted the following guidelines.
