About the Center

Edgemoor entrance to the bcc service center The Center brings public services closer to the community and the residents who use them; provides a focal point for community interaction; and increases citizen accessibility and participation in their government.

The Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center is designed to bring County services closer to the community and to citizens who use those services, increase citizen accessibility to government and participation of citizens in their government, improve the responsiveness of public services to the needs of the local community and coordinate interdepartmental activities and responses to community issues and concerns. We are the local government office for the Bethesda, Cabin John, Chevy Chase, Friendship Heights, Garrett Park, Glen Echo, North Bethesda, Potomac and Rockville communities. We bring "small town" responsiveness to all communities that we serve.

Several non-profit organizations provide programs at the Center that benefit the local community - including lectures, senior exercise classes, mediation training, family and youth counseling, and computer classes.
