Brattleboro Town Manager COVID-19 Update – What’s New Nov 27


• Town field services continue transitioning back to the way in which they operated during last spring’s “Stay Home Stay Safe” period. For now, the way in which the public receives those services still is relatively normal, but the work is being done in accordance with many special procedures required by the State of Vermont and recommended by public health officials. As we move into even more restrictive practices for the protection of employees and the public, we will identify those changes in future “COVID-19 Response Status” updates. 

• The Brattleboro Recreation and Parks Department encourages everyone to transform your front yard, apartment, or house into a bright and decorative celebration of winter! We all need a little light in our lives, so get ready to challenge your neighborhood, your friends, and your family to help us “Light Up Brattleboro.” Join us as we come together to show our festiveness and help bring joy and light into the lives of others. Here’s how you can participate: 

1. Decorate your lawn, apartment, or house in lights and festive decorations that are visible from the street. Please keep your masterpieces family friendly. 

2. Once your display is done, please take a clear photo of your lights and decorations and send the photo to by December 13. In this email, please provide: 

A. The name of the street you live on (we do not need your house number) 

B. A fun, appropriate and unique “Display Name” 

3. Keep your creations lit from dusk until about 9:00 pm each evening until December 31, 2020. 

On December 14, we will post all the submitted photos and display names on our “Brattleboro Recreation and Parks Department” Facebook page with all the street names so everyone can take a stroll and tour the local lights. If you have questions, please contact the Recreation and Parks Office at 802-254-5808 or email us at 

• The Selectboard will meet on Tuesday, December 1. The meeting will begin at 6:15pm and will be held on Zoom due to COVID-19 social distancing requirements.
