In fall 2014, Club 60+ (Chevy Chase’s wellness program for Ward 3 & 4 seniors), Northwest Neighbors Village and IONA Senior Services joined together and submitted a proposed resolution for ANC 3/4 G to consider.
The resolution cited the DC Office on Aging’s Age-Friendly DC initiative as the impetus for requesting immediate attention to renovate the Chevy Chase Community Center. Their resolution also drew attention to the fact that Ward 3 is one of only two wards across the city that still does not have a senior wellness center available for its senior residents today.
ANC 3/4G in recognition of its commitment to advise DC government on various issues including “recreation, social services, health and safety” unanimously passed the resolution 7:0. It was submitted to the Executive Office of the Mayor, the Department of Parks and Recreation, the DC Office on Aging (DCOA), the Chairman of the DC Council, Ward 3 & Ward 4 Councilmembers Cheh and Bowser and the Chair of the DC Council Committee on Health.
To date, there has been no response from any of the recipients. ANC 3/4G will resume its advocacy on behalf of our constituents in 2015 by reaching out to all of the various stakeholders that use the Chevy Chase Community Center inviting their participation and input to re-imagine what a renovated center could mean for all of our residents to enjoy.
If you would like to be a part of this effort, please contact ANC 3/4G’s Office Manager or the respective Commissioners working on this project – Commissioner Cook and Commissioner Shapiro.
