Please Clean Up After Your Pet


The 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.



Overgrown Vegetation

As a reminder, residents are asked to keep all streets and sidewalks clear of overgrown vegetation.  Please prune vegetation to ensure unobstructed sight lines for pedestrians and motorists. The Town’s vegetation maintenance standards are available for review on the Town website.  Thank you for your cooperation in helping to keep Town streets and sidewalks safe.
