Join the DC Office of Planning (OP) for community walks to explore the different features that make the Chevy Chase commercial main street unique and learn about a number of opportunity sites that can contribute to positive and inclusive growth along the Connecticut Avenue corridor. The community walks complement an urban design survey launching in December. Community feedback from the walks and survey will inform a Design Charrette in January.

Sign up for one of the three walks, below:

The walk will start outside the Chevy Chase Library and Community Center (5625 Connecticut Avenue) and cover a four-block stretch of Connecticut Avenue between Chevy Chase Circle and Livingston Street. 

If you need reasonable accommodations (i.e. ASL), email [email protected]. For language assistance services (translation or interpretation), email [email protected]. Please make requests 72 hours in advance of the meeting.

About the Chevy Chase Small Area Plan

In Fiscal Year 2021, Council allocated funding for the DC Office of Planning (OP) to undertake a SAP in the Chevy Chase neighborhood along Connecticut Avenue, NW. Led by OP, the SAP will be developed in coordination with partner agencies undertaking the design plans for the Chevy Chase Community Center / Library redevelopment project and the Connecticut Avenue Reversible Lane Study.

The District's amended Comprehensive Plan proposes a moderate increase in density along Connecticut Avenue in Chevy Chase (in blue on map). The Chevy Chase SAP will explore how new buildings could look and function, to support the commercial district and provide new housing options including affordable housing, subject to future zoning changes. The Chevy Chase SAP boundary covers the two-blocks around the proposed land use change area, west to 41st Street, NW, south to Military Road, NW, and east to Nevada Avenue, NW. This area includes side streets with low density residential (semi-detached, detached homes) and Connecticut Avenue’s medium density residental (apartments and condominium homes). No land uses changes are proposed for these areas. Community participation is also not limited to the SAP boundary.
