Cheverly has been described as an oasis, a small town, a refuge, but to over 6,000 residents it's our home. The town is proud to be designated a “Tree City, USA” and a Maryland PLANT Community. Just drive through the neighborhood to see why.
The sense of community here is amazing. There are the large get-togethers, such as Cheverly Day (with fireworks to rival the District of Columbia on the 4th of July) and a parade that visits Cheverly Avenue every 4 years.
Then there are the clubs and organizations — the Cheverly Garden Club, Boy and Girl Scout troops, The Cheverly Parent Resource Center and the Cheverly Village, to name just a few. Visit the Clubs and Organizations page to see a more complete list and contact information, or peruse the Community Calendar to see what is going on around town.
The town government is comprised of a mayor and town council, which meets every 2nd Thursday at 8 PM for the town meeting, where residents are encouraged to attend, voice their concern and opinions, or just take the opportunity to meet and greet their neighbors. The meetings are available on the town website and are broadcast on Cheverly’s cable channel.
There is a wealth of information about Cheverly's history, and the current project of having a portion of the town listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
