Amended Plans, Rules and Regulations for the Redevelopment of Brookville Road Park

Amended Plans, Rules and Regulations for the Redevelopment of Brookville Road Park

Additional Public Comments Welcomed


At its meeting on July 10, 2017, the Chevy Chase Village Board of Managers reviewed the amended plans, rules and regulations for the redevelopment of the Brookville Road Park and the dog exercise area proposed to be located within the park.  The plans were amended pursuant to the testimony received by the community at Public Hearings held in the spring. 

The Board has directed staff and its landscape architect, Ms. Lila Fendrick to begin working to finalize the plans in order to generate cost estimates for the work and source the specific materials and finishes that will be used within the park, including fencing, benches, plant stock and surface materials.  This work will be done over the summer in preparation for a tentatively scheduled Public Hearing during the Board’s regular meeting on Monday, September 11, 2017.  The meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Amendments to the proposed plan, rules and regulations included:

  • Changing the proposed fence style from aluminum to a wood split rail fence with an attached wire mesh backing at a consistent height of five feet (5’).
  • The westernmost perimeter fence line was moved closer toward Brookville Road (just east of the stand of Willow Oak trees) to maximize the dog exercise area.  As a result, the number of benches between the westernmost perimeter fence and the Brookville Road sidewalk was reduced.
  • Elimination of the access control and pet registry requirements.
  • Expansion of the dog exercise area (the fence enclosed area) by 1,300 square feet for a total of 7,800 square feet.
  • Expansion of the dog run area (the center portion to consist of either a stonedust or wood chip ground cover) by 1,230 feet for a total of 3,780 square feet.
  • Additional plantings have been added to fill in the remaining exposed areas along the existing wood perimeter fencing that separates the park from the abutting private properties to provide an additional layer of buffering between the dog exercise area and the neighbors.

The revised plans, rules and regulations are now available on the Village website for review.  Comments regarding the revised materials may be submitted to the Village Board, c/o Village Manager Shana Davis-Cook at  Ms. Davis-Cook is also available to answer any questions or provide further information regarding the proposed project.
