White Flint Cleans Up to Impress the New Neighbors
A joint effort between the White Flint Ad Hoc Urban Services Committee, the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center and the Montgomery County Department of Corrections has aimed to enhance and improve the White Flint area in advance of new development in the corridor
From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, a nine-person maintenance team completes various tasks devised assigned by the B-CC Regional Services Center.
Assignments have included routine maintenance like weed control, sidewalk sweeping and litter collection, along with special clean-up projects. The team is directly supervised by Department of Corrections personnel and is outfitted with equipment and supplies by the Regional Service Center.
The Weekend Maintenance Team has collected thousands of bags of refuse since May and assisted in the derecho storm recovery by collecting more than 1,500 bags of tree debris. White Flint property owners expressed their support of the team through the donations of dozens of cases of trash bags. Storm clean-up was conducted along Woodglen Drive and Nebel Street, among other core White Flint area roadways.
In addition, the maintenance team is helping the county Department of Transportation clean up after sidewalk repairs along Rockville Pike, from Strathmore Avenue to Old Georgetown Road. The team also edged and cleaned sidewalks connecting White Flint to nearby neighborhoods, including Old Georgetown Road from Tuckerman Ln. to Executive Blvd.
