FY2019 Budget Preparations

The Chevy Chase Village Board of Managers has established a process for review of the operating and capital improvement program budgets that ensures public participation and input.  This process begins with a work session during which the Board reviews in detail the Village Manager’s draft proposed budget for the fiscal year that will begin on July 1, 2018 and ends on June 30, 2019.  Following the work session, the Board holds two Public Hearings at which residents may ask questions or present comments regarding the draft budget.  The process ends with the Board’s adoption of the FY2019 budget during the Village’s Annual Meeting.
Below is an overview of this year’s budget review and adoption process, which begins later this month:

Planning Board Public Hearing on Proposed Changes to the Master Plan of Highways & Transitways:
February 15, 2018

from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

The Montgomery County Planning Board has scheduled a Public Hearing on the comprehensive rewrite of the County’s Master Plan of Highways and Transitways for Thursday, February 15, 2018 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Planning Department’s Headquarters at 8787 Georgia Avenue, Silver Spring.  In addition to road classification changes, the working draft includes the vision, goals, history and purpose of the plan, improved online tools and resources to improve the ease of use and clarity of the plan for the public, and enhancement of the plan to be more consistent and compliant with the Montgomery County Code. 
The Public Hearing draft does not include any proposed reclassifications within Chevy Chase Village.  Earlier staff recommendations to reclassify Brookville Road and Grafton Street have been completely removed from the Public Hearing draft of the plan, however, reference is made that Brookville Road was removed due to the abundant objections submitted by local residents. 

Residents interested in testifying at the February 15 Public Hearing may sign-up online at beginning on February 5.  Comments may also be submitted in writing by email to  All comments and testimony become a part of the official public record.

The Planning Board intends to transmit its final recommendations to the County Executive and County Council by April 2018.

Legal Notice
DRAFT Performance Report Update and Comment Period on the State of Maryland's Consolidated Plan

Notice is hereby given that the State of Maryland has opened a 30 day public comment period on the draft Consolidated Plan Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER). 
The Consolidated Plan is a planning document required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and is prepared by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD). It covers a five year period (July 1, 2015-June 30, 2019) and is designed to coordinate Federal and, to a lesser extent, State resources to provide decent housing, economic opportunities, and an acceptable living environment for Maryland's citizens. The Plan is updated every year during the five year period through an Annual Action Plan, and includes a series of one year goals toward meeting the overall five year goals of the Plan.   
Maryland's Consolidated Plan covers the state's non-entitlement jurisdictions. Entitlement jurisdictions - those that receive funding directly from HUD, including Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Harford, Howard, Montgomery and Prince George's Counties, and the Cities of Annapolis, Baltimore, Bowie, Cumberland, Frederick, Gaithersburg, Hagerstown, and Salisbury - prepare their own Consolidated Plans and are not covered by the State plan.
As part of the Consolidated Planning process, the State submits a CAPER to HUD which describes the progress the State has made in carrying out the one-year goals contained in the five year Plan. DHCD has just completed the third year of the five year Plan that ended June 30, 2017, and the draft CAPER details the progress DHCD made toward it housing and community development goals both in the last year, the previous year and for the full five years of the Plan.  
DHCD is interested in public input and comment on the draft CAPER.  We will take written comments (via either email or standard post) on the report through COB Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at the address listed below.  In addition, we will hold a series of public meetings on the CAPER at the following dates, times, and places:
