The Town of Brattleboro, with technical assistance from consultant Dufresne Group, invites the community to join them in a discussion of the Route 9 (Exit 2 – Main Street) Bike Lane Scoping Study. The project seeks to examine the roadway for improvements to the transportation network to facilitate bicycle travel. The purpose of the meeting is to obtain comments and concerns about the existing conditions related to bicycle and pedestrian use from local residents and members of the public. Comments are also being accepted at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DW8DBMD.
Handy Stations were the primary topic of a special virtual meeting of the Brattleboro Selectboard. The board approved spending $3,600 on three artistic devices to help people sanitize their hands downtown. If it works out, they may spend even more on keeping people safe.
It was admitted that some hand sanitizer taped to the wall might be significantly less expensive, but a motion-sensing, artist -decorated, musical hand sanitizing station to be adopted and maintained by businesses was the preferred idea. There was also an interesting discussion about the Civil War monument.
The Brattleboro Selectboard is holding a special meeting to take care of the business not attended to at the last meeting. It looks like a short agenda, but who really knows?
You can bring up other items not on the agenda during public participation.
The Brattleboro Selectboard didn’t get to new business until after 11 pm. Old business of Representative Town Meeting scheduling, second thoughts on an already-approved budget, and competing proposals for police reforms filled the lengthy meeting.
In the end, no new RTM was set, the board was told the budget cannot be changed but can be ignored selectively, and competing proposals for police reforms will fill a new meeting schedule for July 21.
