Upcoming Town Meetings and Important Town Notices

Upcoming Road Closure at Mears Ave. and C Streets Due to Construction – On Monday 11/19 and Tuesday 11/20, C Street at Mears Ave. will be closed due to construction. C Street at 17th will be open. The suggested detour during the closure would be to use 16th Street for pulling out to Rte. 261 (Bayside Rd.) because it has the best field of view.  There will be flaggers from 7-9 am and 2-4 pm assisting with cross over at 16th Street and 261 on Monday 11/19 and Tuesday 11/20.

Comprehensive Plan Survey – Take part in Planning the Town of Chesapeake Beach by completing this survey . Responses will be used by the Planning and Zoning Commission in drafting the Town’s updated Comprehensive Plan.

Let’s talk trash!  “The Town of Chesapeake Beach Code requires that all trash storage receptacles shall be made of durable material and shall be watertight with tight fitting covers to control odor and prevent animal access.  No garbage, trash or debris shall be placed out for collection except in proper receptacles.”  Due to the excessive rains this summer, the trash company has been finding trash cans full of water along with being full of trash.  This causes the cans to be so heavy that they can’t physically be picked up.  The company has begun a no tolerance policy and will not collect the trash if the can is full of water.  You must properly cover your containers to avoid this and to ensure pick up.  Also, please do not use the Town provided recycle bins for regular trash; that will also prevent your trash from being collected.  We appreciate your attention and help with these matters as we strive to keep Chesapeake Beach beautiful.

B Street Slope Assessment and the Beach Boardwalk Closure – The Global Stability Analysis report for the B Street Slope has been completed.  To view the report, click here .  Construction drawings and bid plans to address a failing retaining wall along the slope are being prepared.  A scope of work is also being prepared to address the boardwalk repairs.

Utility Tree Trimming BGE contractors will be performing vegetation management on overhead distribution lines in the Town during 2019. BGE will communicate with residents using tools such as door hangers, one-on-one conversations, etc.  To view the tree trimming schedule, click here .
