The Glenmont Forest Neighbors Civic Association (GFNCA) is an award-winning non-profit organization that was established in the summer of 2009 to represent resident of the community. GFNCA’s efforts today focus on environmental health, pedestrian and vehicular safety, improved infrastructure, and community building, in addition to staying abreast of plans to redevelop downtown Wheaton and the greater Glenmont area.
Nestled in the Montgomery County suburbs of Washington, D.C., GFNCA is located in Silver Spring, Maryland.
We represent a thriving, growing, and diverse community of families, professionals, new and long-time residents concerned about our neighborhood's environment and quality of life. GFNCA represents approximately 1200 households within its boundaries.
As a very active civic association, GFNCA continually engages the community with government and elected officials, non-profit organizations, neighboring civic associations, police, etc. to work on making the community the ideal place o call home. Some of the activities organized by GFNCA include community walk around with elected officials, community beautification projects, sidewalk construction, street resurfacing, traffic safety improvements, trash collection enhancement, environmental projects, community building and education, etc.

A new USPS mailbox has been installed at the NE corner of Livingston and Newton. Many thanks to the neighbor who proposed this addition! This mailbox has a new, secure design that prevents thieves from removing items from the box. As a consequence of this security feature, only letters, not packages, can be deposited in this mailbox, which is oriented so that pedestrians can easily deposit mail.
Pickup time is 3:00 PM Monday - Saturday.
