Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center, Conference Room B
4805 Edgemoor Lane
Bethesda, MD 20814
Convenient to Bethesda Metro.
Note: Because there is a monthly charge for the room, a $5.00 contribution from each person is appreciated.
Directions: The address is 4805 Edgemoor Lane in downtown Bethesda, off Old Georgetown Rd. and near the Metro. There is a County parking garage below the building on Edgemoor Lane. If you are coming from Northern Virginia on the Beltway, take Wisconsin Ave. and turn right on Commerce Lane. At Old Georgetown Rd. the street becomes Edgemoor Lane. Follow it around the corner and you will see the parking garage on the right.
When you get out of your car go to the elevator. When you get in it you will see the button for the floor for the BCC Service Center. When you get off the elevator, to the left on the building you will see another sign pointing to the entrance to the Center. Our meeting will be on the second floor, Room B. These instructions may seem more complicated than they actually are.
