May Town Meeting Notes


Our first town meeting was really great!  The highlight (for my kids, at least) was the cake from Sweet Bobbi's.  It was an honor to be sworn in as your new Council Member and I look forward to working with each of you going forward.  In order to facilitate communication I have created a virtual comment box, unless you would like a response from me, all comments are confidential.  Please feel free to fill it out here


After the swearing in and cake break we all had the opportunity to recognize the great work of our police force, the first presentation was to recognize a few officers and Mayor Mike for their quick work when a local child had a medical crisis in January.  Additionally, the entire force received a citation for their great work at reducing the crime rate in Cheverly.


  • The Recreation Council has a $500 scholarship to a Cheverly resident who is enrolled full time in an academic or vocational program in the 2016-2017 academic year.  For applications call Judy DeLeonibus at 301-386-4251. 
  • The Green Infrastructure Committee is hosting their annual photo contest this year's theme is Cheverly Streams, all photos are due to the Community Center by 5pm on May 17 and need to printed out to 8x10.
  • The proposed road diet that I mentioned in my last newsletter was put off and instead SHA will just move forward with repaving the street and keep the number of lanes the same.
  • A question about the Wayne Place playground.  There are no updates scheduled for this year since Corvias is scheduled to redo the stormwater management on the path just beyond the playgound.
  • As many of you probably have noticed, the demolition of the building on 6301 is in process.  It should be done shortly and the fence will be removed once the debris is removed and the land is cleared for access.  
  • There are two nearby properties in the processed of being developed. The first is the Smithfield property and it will likely be a distribution point for local groceries etc. The second is the Craftsman property that may turn into a location for a few different businesses (they are looking into food related businesses too!)  Stay tuned for more information!
  • Finally, the May Worksession is on Thursday, May 25 at 8pm.  I will send out the agenda when it is released.

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…

Town Administrator Update

The paving of Lake Ave is happening next week (the week of July 16).The town is ordering cameras for the hazardous waste collection unit.  It is important that all residents understand that paint can not be deposited here.  If you have good paint left please bring to community fork lift.  If it is latex, dry it out to replace.  All oil based paint needs to be taken to Brown Station.  Cheverly cannot collect this and transport because we do not have a hazardous waste transport permit.  David Warrington will look into if there are thir…

August Newsletter

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!

2. Curbside Composting In order to get town wide curbside composting, we need 100 families to sign up.  So far we have fewer than 25.  So, if you are interested please fill out this form and you can email it to me or deliver it directly to Public Works.  No need to pay for the bin until we've collected all 100 families!

3.  Trust Town Designation.  Council Member Ivey has introduc…
