Halloween Party 2019

We had a Blast at the Chevy Chase Village Annual Halloween Party!

Thank you to the many residents who attended our Annual Halloween Party held this past Wednesday, October 30, here at the Village Hall. Attendees enjoyed conversation and food, while the children enjoyed cookie and pumpkin decorating and were spooked by our very own Haunted House. Special thanks to our esteemed costume judges, Susan Kilborn, Ruth Robbins and Edward Peck who had the difficult task of judging the immensely creative costumes!

Pedestrian Map

Online Interactive Map of Pedestrian Pathway and Street Crossing Comfort Is Now Available

The Montgomery County Planning Department has created the interactive Pedestrian Level of Comfort Map as part of its ongoing Pedestrian Master Plan.
The Pedestrian Level of Comfort Map allows community members to visualize the varying comfort of the county’s sidewalks, pathways, trails and street crossings for pedestrians. Users can pan and zoom around the county map, clicking on different colored pathways and crossing segments to learn about their scoring based on current conditions.
The project team will use the Pedestrian Level of Comfort Map and other tools to analyze how well different neighborhoods are comfortably connected to parks, schools, transit stops, libraries, and other important regional destinations so improvements to pathways and street crossings can be prioritized.
To learn more about the Pedestrian Master Plan, attend an upcoming community meeting with the Montgomery Planning team:

  • Germantown: Wednesday, November 6, 7 to 9 p.m. at the Upcounty Regional Services Center
  • Wheaton: Wednesday, November 13, 6:45 to 8:15 p.m. at the Wheaton Regional Library

Join the Crew; The Compost Crew

Food-waste recycling--otherwise known as “composting” is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint and greenhouse emissions while returning nutrients to our soil and food system. 

The Village has partnered with The Compost Crew to provide low-cost household collection of food-waste. The Compost Crew provides each household with an airtight bin and compostable bags; all you have to do is separate your organic waste and leave the bin by your trash and recycling receptacles for collection on the designated day for weekly pick-up. The collected waste is processed at a composting facility in Maryland and, after six months of service, households can request that a portion of your contributed waste be returned in the form of rich, finished nutrient-rich soil. 

For more information regarding the household composting collection service, including current rates, please visit the “Food Waste Recycling Program” page on the Village website under Quick Links on the homepage. The more households that sign-up,the cheaper the service is for all, so sign up today!
