Businesses in Cheverly



Photo Credit: Cheverly Commnity Market

Many of you may have gone to the town hall meeting last week where council members answered questions about the Greater Cheverly Sector Plan that will, among other things, bring more commercial development to the town.  This is an exciting opportunity for our community in the long run, but in the meantime, there are already many thriving locally-owned businesses offering a wide variety of products and services.  As a small business owner, I got the change to meet and work with many of these great entrepreneurs.  Below are some of these local businesses, but I know this is only a small sample of what's out there.   Please email me at bethpmackenzie@gmail.com so I can add yours to the list!

Bladensburg Concrete Batching Plant

The Mayor and Town Council held a special meeting, Monday, June 19 at 7:30 pm to learn more about the application for a special exception for a concrete batching plant being developed on the current concrete block plant owned and operated by Ernest Maier.  Presenting were, Brendan Quinn, owner of Ernest Maier, Debbie Scanlon the Town Administrator for the city of Bladensburg, and Chris Melendez, the Vice President for the Port Town Community Development Corporation.  (Please note that all comments herein are written down to the best of my memory and I apologize for any errors or incomplete information)

The meeting was scheduled in order to decide whether or not the Town of Cheverly should send a letter to  Parks & Planning prior to the scheduled June 23 hearing.  However, the impression is that the meeting may be cancelled and the issue sent directly onto the Zoning Board.

Brendan Quin presented his proposal that his company which currently owns 16 acres of land around Bladensburg…

Hello all!  I hope you don't mind that I saved the town meeting updates until after the work session. Below are some of the updates.

1.  A Coffee Shop for Cheverly? As many of you know there is a 175,000 square foot building behind the Cheverly Pool that has recently been sold to a development company that is looking to turn it into a maker & market space with community spaces to meet, shop and work on our own businesses.  If you would like to learn more email me at bethpmackenzie@gmail.com Please stay tuned here and on my facebook page for future events (food truck night!) at this location as well!
