The Town of Vail will host its remaining neighborhood picnic of the summer on Tuesday, Aug. 11 at Donovan Pavilion. The picnic will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and food and drink will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
Representatives from the police, fire, community development, library and administration departments will join the Vail Town Council in sponsoring Tuesday’s picnic. Activities will include information on wildfire readiness and a drawing for two free 72-hour emergency preparedness kits. There will also be giveaways of reusable bags to support the Kick the Bag Habit as well as discussions with prospective home buyers to help shape the planning for the town’s development of the Chamonix property behind the West Vail fire station. Representatives from the Vail Public Library will also be on hand to answer questions about materials, services and programs. In addition, information on the upcoming November election will be provided by the Town Clerk's Office, including voter registration, permanent absentee voter status and the petition process for running for Vail Town Council.
The picnic provides residents an opportunity to offer comments and suggestions about community issues to members of the town staff and Vail Town Council. An earlier picnic at Bighorn Park drew hundreds of picnickers. A recap of citizen comments and responses will be posted on the town’s website at vailgov.com following the event.
