We are closing or restricting certain access to our community parks at sundown today. Our walking trails will remain open to allow for physical activity and an outlet for good mental health, we must do so in a way that doesn’t spread this disease. At minimum, we are not allowing the use of pavilions, playground equipment, picnic tables, basketball courts, and other temptations that would decrease the distance between groups of people, required shared equipment, or where handwashing is not readily accessible. Please consider these types of activities in these locations restricted until further notice. We will demonstrate a law enforcement presence by asking them to drive through to ensure social distancing is being adhered to.
I thank you for your support in these trying times for us all,

Why It Matters
Hospitals. Fire departments. Schools. Even roads and highways. The census can shape many different aspects of your community. Each year, the results help determine how more than $675 billion in federal funding is distributed to states and communities.
By April 2020, households will receive an invitation to participate in the census. You’ll then have three options to respond: online, by phone, or by mail. We’ll mark Census Day on April 1, 2020, with events across the country. This is a key date for the 2020 count: When completing the census, you’ll note where you are living on April 1.
