Overgrown VegetationAs plantings sprout new growth this spring, residents are reminded to trim back vegetation that obscures sightlines at intersections or is growing over a sidewalk or street in a way that could interfere with pedestrian or vehicular safety. Thank you in advance.
Please Clean Up After Your PetThe Town office has received numerous complaints about dog waste being left on the grounds of Chevy Chase Elementary School and on other public areas in Town. The Town has installed numerous dog waste stations in Town, including three around the elementary school. Leaving dog waste on school grounds is unlawful and poses a health hazard to children and others who use the school’s outdoor recreational facilities. We appreciate your cooperation in addressing this issue.
