Public Meeting on Town Parking Regulations, April 24, 7 p.m. -- On Monday, April 24 at 7 p.m. in the Town Hall, the Town’s Public Services Committee will hold a meeting for all Town residents to discuss parking in the Town. Resident input is essential in planning for the impact on Town parking of current and future development in downtown Bethesda. The goal of the meeting is to gather information and obtain resident feedback on the current parking and permit policies and is not to resolve specific resident parking situations. Topics of discussion will include: 

• Parking enforcement: Should current parking restrictions be more strictly enforced? Is the current visitor parking pass system adequate for the needs of residents on streets with permit parking?

• Parking restrictions: Will more streets need to have permit parking as development continues? Should there be a change in the hours when permit parking is in effect? 

• Zoned parking: Should the Town implement permit parking zones so that those with permits may only park in designated areas near their homes?

Candidates' Forum, April 26, 7 p.m. --
The Town's Election Board will host a “Candidates’ Forum” on Wednesday, April 26 at 7 p.m. in the Town Hall.  Charles Duffy, former host of the Montgomery Municipal Cable TV show “Political Pulse,” has agreed to serve as moderator for the ninth year.  The forum will begin with a brief presentation by the Town's Election Board members on Town election procedures for this year, including the use of digital scanners to record and report votes. 

As in the past, questions at the forum will be posed by the moderator based on questions submitted by residents prior to the forum.  There will be no questions from the audience at the forum.  If you have a question you would like posed to the candidates, please email it to the Town office at townoffice@townofchevychase.org by Tuesday, April 25.  

Unless a write-in candidate files by Tuesday, April 25, there will be two candidates for two vacant seats. Don't let this discourage you from attending the forum and hearing the candidates' positions on important issues facing the Town!
