Resident Directory Update Request

 Recently the Village office circulated a Resident Directory Update Request form by mail to all Village residents containing household information currently included in our Resident Directory database.  This update request is due back to the Village office by June 10, and as of this afternoon, less than a quarter of Village households have returned their form. 

Please take a moment to review confirm your listing and return the update form, even if there is no change, either by mail, email (, fax (301-907-9721), in person at the Village Hall (open 24 hours a day) or via the Village website as soon as possible, but preferably by the end of the week so final updates can be incorporated before the Resident Directory goes to print. 

We do our best to keep household contact information current, but we need your help to do this.  Thank you for taking time to update your Resident Directory listing. The 2018 Resident Directory will be available for pick-up at the July 4th Parade & Party and from the Village Hall thereafter (limit one per household).

Beltway Lane Closures Overnight June 8-9


Major Delays Expected with Triple Lane Closures Friday Night June 8 Through Saturday Afternoon June 9

Beginning Friday, June 8 at 9 p.m., the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will resurface the outer loop of I-495 (Capital Beltway) Bridge over Kensington Parkway. The bridge deck resurfacing will significantly improve ride quality and will be complete and open to traffic no later than 5 p.m. Saturday, June 9, weather permitting.

Motorists will encounter triple lane closures between MD 97 (Georgia Avenue) and MD 185 (Connecticut Avenue) beginning at 9 p.m. Friday. MDOT SHA will maintain one travel lane at all times until crews complete resurfacing the bridge deck.

Although traffic volumes decrease at night and on weekends, nearly 233,000 vehicles per day on average travel on this section of the Capital Beltway so motorists should expect major delays during paving. MDOT SHA suggests using MD 193 (University Boulevard), MD 586 (Veirs Mill Road) and MD 97 (Georgia Avenue) as alternate routes.

The bridge deck resurfacing is part of MDOT SHA’s $8 million safety and resurfacing project, which should be complete mid-summer. Click here for more project information.

While MDOT SHA and its transportation partners work hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones, each driver needs to actively modify his or her driving style to help prevent crashes. Stay alert and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers. Slow down and don’t follow too closely. Work Zone Safety is in Your Hands.

Brookville Road Park Closed for Improvements

The Brookville Road Park remains closed for redevelopment and construction of a new dog exercise area.

The contractor will try to ensure that pedestrian access along the Brookville Road public sidewalk is maintained, however, there may be occasions when the sidewalk needs to be closed due to deliveries or specific work. Construction plans for the proposed park can be viewed on the Brookville Road Park page.

For more information or questions please contact the Village’s Municipal Operations Coordinator Ellen Sands by phone at 301-654-7300 or via e-mail at

Planning Board Approves Master Plan of Highways and Transitways on May 3 and Sends Plan to County Council for Consideration

Plan updates county road classifications and transit-related facilities for the first time in more than 60 years to prepare for future infrastructure investments

The Montgomery County Planning Board, part of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC), approved the Planning Board Draft of the Master Plan of Highways and Transitways (MPOHT) on May 3, 2018 and sent it to the County Council and the County Executive for consideration. The public will get a chance to provide comments to the County Council about the master plan during a public hearing on July 10 at 1:30 p.m.

The plan updates the county's road and transitway network with recommendations that range from road classification changes to Urban Road Code boundary changes to bring the MPOHT into conformance with the Montgomery County Code. It is the first major revision to the MPOHT since 1955 and pro­vides a comprehensive summary of all significant existing and proposed highway and transitway facilities within the county.

Residents Reminded to Comply with Local “Signs” Ordinance

Chevy Chase Village has its own “Signs” Code (Chapter 12) which outlines a series of regulations and parameters for signs erected in the Village, both on private property and in the public right-of-way.
The regulation of signs is intended to enhance pedestrian and vehicular safety and to preserve the attractiveness of the streetscape.  Key provisions include:

  • Signs allowed on private property, with certain limitations, including political and religious signs, flags, and scholastic or collegiate banners; no permit is required.

  • Signs allowed on private property and/or in certain locations within the public right-of-way: real estate signs--both the wooden yard signs and for open house events; location signs for estate and yard sales; and directional signs intended to guide or direct vehicular or pedestrian traffic; Village sign permit required for each sign erected.

  • Commercial signs are not allowed within the Village. (Exception: security/alarm system signs, which are allowed within certain size and location parameters.) Commercial signs include: fence company name plates, attached to new fences containing the fence company’s name, such as “LONG FENCE”; and construction or contracting company signs. Commercial signs placed in the public right-of-way will be promptly removed by Village staff. If a commercial sign is observed on private property, notice will be provided by Village staff to the property owner requesting prompt removal.

  • An “electronic pet containment system” (i.e., electric pet fence) sign, issued by the Village, must be posted at each property where said system is in operation.

  • No signs of any kind are permitted within the “tree box”, the area located between the sidewalk and curb/roadway.

Residents may view the full “Signs” Ordinance on the Village website ( For questions concerning signs, associated permits or to request an “electronic pet containment system” sign, please contact the Village office at or 301-654-7300.
