Meeting About Trolley Bridge Demolition

Trestle Bridge Demolition Information Meeting Scheduled
A public meeting has been scheduled for February 22 at 5pm via Zoom for all residents along with the Council to meet with WMATA representatives to go over the Wilson trestle bridge demolition project. An invitation will be sent via Constant Contact to residents.
The Town of Glen Echo has been alerted by WMATA that they plan to demolish the Wilson Trestle Bridge on the west edge of Town near Radcliffe and Wellesley Circle. This would begin in the winter of 2022 and take 3-6 months. The resulting impacts may affect residents on Radcliffe, upper Cornell and Wellesley Circle near Radcliffe.
The Town is working with WMATA to develop appropriate guidelines for site access, staging, truck traffic, noise, work hours, restoration and other impacts on Town residents.



Filing Local Taxes

TAX RETURN REMINDER: MARYLAND TAXING AREA Revenues received through our residents’ paid income taxes are a source of Town revenues. The Town needs your help to ensure that all income tax revenue due to the Town arrives here. It is important that the portion of the tax paid to Montgomery County returns to the Town. In order for the state of Maryland to return this revenue, your political subdivision needs to be entered on Maryland Form 502. Maryland Form 502 now requests a 4 digit Political Subdivision Code as well as the Maryland Political Subdivision. The 4 digit Code for Glen Echo is 1605. Please also be sure that “Glen Echo” is written in
the box labeled “City, Town or Taxing Area.” This ensures that our community receives its fair share of the income tax revenues distributed by the state. 

Sustainable Landscaping and Stormwater Management Program

February 24 at 7pm via Zoom

Dr. Sara Via,

Please join this excellent program by Dr. Via. She developed this talk specifically for Glen Echo with a focus on our challenges with stormwater and outdoor landscapes. She will discuss the ways that climate change is affecting our home landscapes, how we can increase the biodiversity of our own outdoor spaces, and how we can be part of the solution rather than part of the problem. She will give us ideas on how we can better manage our stormwater. 

Time: Feb 24, 2021 07:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
