The Policy Group developed guidelines for relaxing restrictions on park access and outreach to businesses that can provide curbside service starting May 8, 2020. Park access will be expanded to allow groups (smaller than 10 people) in the same household to visit a park, sit together and walk through the park. Face coverings required when you enter/exit parks and within 6 feet of someone not in your household. No group sports allowed at this time. Bathrooms, play equipment, fields, courts, gazebos, picnic benches, etc., remain closed. New signage will be posted by Friday, May 8.
Economic Development staff is reviewing the Governor’s guidelines for Stage 2 business activities to inform the outreach effort to be implemented following Council consideration and approval of an Emergency Ordinance requiring all businesses operating in the City to prepare and post City-approved social distancing and sanitation protocols.
