The Brattleboro Selectboard held a first reading of a proposed ordinance to limit upfront rental costs, but decided not to move ahead with a second reading. Instead, more research, new ideas, and data will be explored.
Groundworks got a big grant which enables the completion of their project on South Main Street, and the marketing initiative to promote Brattleboro was discussed.
The Brattleboro Selectboard will have a first reading of an ordinance to limit upfront rental costs at their next regular meeting, which will be held on 10-20-2020. (And probably end at 10:20.)
Police cars will be purchased, health insurance will be renewed, leases will be extended, grants will be applied for, and the skatepark committee will be disbanded now that their work is through. You can bring up other items not on the agenda during public participation.
The Second Skatepark Design Meeting is scheduled for Sept 20th @ 6:30 pm at the Gibson Aiken Senior Center, Main Street in Brattleboro. You are welcome to attend this Visioning Design session with Stantec.
Please consider sharing the information with any BMX, Skaters and Rollerbladers you know.
