Bethesda/Chevy Chase Regional Services Center



The White Flint Downtown Advisory Committee was established by the County Council to advise County departments on public services in the White Flint area as well as coordinate community activities that promote business interests and a sense of community within that area. 

The Committee is also working to create a White Flint Urban District (proposed in the 2010 White Flint Sector Plan). The urban service district will provide increased maintenance of the streetscape and its amenities; create additional public amenities such as plantings, seating, shelters, and works of art; promote the commercial and residential interests of the community; and program cultural and community activities.  For more information on developing public amenities in White Flint see here

The Committee's 14 members are appointed by the County Executive and serve three year terms
(after which they may be appointed again).
