Parks and Recreation Advisory Board

The Parks and Recreation Advisory Board's primary duty is to serve as the coordinating and reviewing body of the Town for matters related to parks, sidewalks, trails and recreational facilities and activities in and adjacent to the Town limits. The Committee has been working on fulfilling the Bike and Pedestrian Mobility Plan which would connect sidewalks throughout the Town. This Committee meets on the third Tuesday of every month at 7:00 PM in the Heritage Room at the Town Hall.
