Food Drive

Food Drive: Now - December in the Village Hall

For the fifth year in a row, Chevy Chase Village will partner with the Manna Food Center, the largest food bank in Montgomery County. Over the past 34 years, Manna has distributed 47.3 million pounds of food to more than 2.7 million individuals in need of food assistance. Manna serves approximately 3,700 individuals monthly totaling 11,000 unduplicated households each year. The services of Manna ensure that 21,000 adults and 15,000 children who are experiencing poverty, hunger, and food insecurity will receive essential food supports to help them break the cycle of hunger and food insecurity.

What can you do? We will have a food drop-off at the Village Hall beginning in October through December. When attending Village events (classes, Board Meetings, Halloween Party, Holiday Party…), residents are asked to bring an item to add to the box. Here are some ideas: peanut butter, tuna fish, beans, oatmeal, mac and cheese, pasta, baby food, and shelf-stable milk. Please do not donate expired food.

Village Board Submits Comments Regarding Reclassification of Local Roadways

For several weeks, the Village has been reporting on the Planning Department’s efforts to comprehensively rewrite the County’s Master Plan of Highways and Transitways.  This effort included the Planning Staff’s original proposal to reclassify roadways within and abutting the Village, namely, Brookville Road, Grafton Street and Western Avenue.
The Village submitted a letter (link below) in mid-October to the Planning Board objecting to the proposed reclassifications of Brookville Road and Grafton Street.  Prior to doing so, Village staff along with residents from the Village and neighboring municipalities along Brookville Road communicated concerns and objections regarding the proposed reclassifications.  The Planning Staff has confirmed that the originally proposed reclassifications of Brookville Road and Grafton Street have been removed from the staff’s list of recommendations.  This means that Brookville Road would remain in the MPOHT as a “primary residential” roadway and Grafton Street will not be referenced within the plan at all. 

The Planning Staff will present its recommendations to the Planning Board during a work session (public comment will not be permitted at this meeting) on December 7 (a second work session has been tentatively scheduled for December 21, if needed).  The staff’s final report will be posted to the Planning Department’s website one week prior to the work session.  Once an initial slate of proposed changes is approved by the Planning Board, a 30-day comment period will be advertised with a Public Hearing scheduled for February 2018 (specific date TBD).
