You can now watch the Town of Vail's Virtual Community Meeting, which aired live on March 30, at any time. The fast-paced half hour presentation includes pre-recorded video vignettes and interviews produced by High Five Access Media and ART Digital Media, including the premiere of the final installment of the #VailStrong video series as well as a tribute to the 2021 Trailblazer Award recipients, Sally and Bill Hanlon. It also provides highlights of the year from the town's directors and reflections from town councilmembers.
The Facebook livestreams garnered over 1,500 video views and high engagement rates from viewers, who were encouraged to comment on the livestream and via email during the presentation with something they learned or observed to be entered into a drawing for a 2021/22 Blue Parking Pass. Comments ranged from "I learned what my mayor looks like!" to "Thank you for a very informative session. I really liked the video in the beginning that highlighted the shutdown due to Covid to the successful reopening of Vail. I also really appreciated how the town stepped up to help the local businesses while struggling to deal with the shutdown."
Congratulations to the winner of the Blue Parking Pass drawing, Jessie Klehforth, whose name was pulled from nearly100 entries.
