WHAT IS NEW TODAY
• The Recreation and Parks Department has received many questions about the usage of Town parks facilities by people from outside of Brattleboro. Recreation officials all over Vermont have received many similar questions. In the Governor’s “Stay Home – Stay Safe” addendum issued on Friday, May 15, he clarified earlier instructions regarding limits on day travel to Vermont from out of state.
As it applies to the use of parks facilities, the Governor’s clarification states that “commuter (day trip) traffic to and from Vermont … is authorized for … currently authorized … recreation.” Thus, all people are allowed to use Town park facilities in accordance with the same limitations and social distancing requirements (see the “Recreation and Parks Department” section of this update on pages 5+6 below) regardless of whether they are Brattleboro residents or live outside of our town or state.
