Letters to the Editor: Opinions sought on Chevy Chase community center

The Chevy Chase Community Center is located at Connecticut Avenue and McKinley Street NW. (Brian Kapur/The Current/January 2017)

For the past year, Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3/4G and the Chevy Chase Citizens Association have been soliciting the community’s input on our collective vision for the future of the Chevy Chase Community Center. In numerous meetings, we’ve heard suggestions for improving both the center’s physical facilities and its effectiveness in meeting the community’s evolving needs. We all want to make the community center a vital resource that can serve our neighborhood for decades to come.

Based on extensive input from the community, we have developed a short survey that will help us gather data about the community’s desires and needs for the facility at 5601 Connecticut Ave. NW. We expect to compile this data as part of a report to Mayor Muriel Bowser and the D.C. Council with recommendations for what steps should be taken to bring the community center up to the standards that the community expects. This is an opportunity for everyone who has any interest in the Chevy Chase Community Center to communicate their views to the District’s decision-makers.

The survey can be completed at cccc.questionpro.com, and it will only take about 10 minutes to complete. Regardless of where you live or how much you use the community center, your views are valuable and will be appreciated.

Randy Speck, Chair, ANC 3/4G
