News & Events
The Village of Drummond is renovating Drummond Ave and Warwick Ln; our largest capital improvement initiative in the last fifty years. The work began in late 2017 and it includes removal of the old concrete road, instillation of a new sub-road infrastructure, and poring of a new concrete road surface. Work is expected to be complete by June 2018. We appreciate everyone’s patience as the project has unfolded.
Upon completion of the road work, The Citizens Committee will turn its attention to improving the conditions of our neighborhood’s sidewalks. Many sections of the sidewalks are cracked and uneven. These conditions can lead to unwanted erosion, cause water to pool and ice, and increase tripping hazards. The Committee has received multiple proposals for repair and replacement of the sidewalks. They will work with the Village’s civil engineer and general council to review the proposals and select a contractor to do the work.

The Citizens Committee has a new email address that can be used to contact any of the Village officers: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In September 2016 the Village celebrated the 100th anniversary of Montgomery County’s issuance of Drummond’s charter as a special taxing area. In connection with that celebration, the Village commissioned a leading architectural history firm to prepare a publication entitled “Village of Drummond 1916-2016: 100 Years of History.” The booklet is based on interviews with current and past residents and archival research and is richly illustrated with current and historic photographs. It includes a photograph and brief history of every house currently found in the Village. Copies were distributed to all Village residents, but an ample supply remains. Any resident who wishes additional copies should contact the Secretary.
Relatives of our late friend and neighbor Dori Carroll have generously contributed $2,000 in Dori’s memory towards the care and replacement of Village trees. The Village has established a Tree Fund that will be used for this purpose, and the Citizens Committee is considering alternatives for a permanent marker honoring Dori and any others in whose honor a contribution of at least $2,000 may be made in the future.
