VAIL — The town of Vail’s 15th annual neighborhood picnic series has two events this year. The first is Tuesday at Bighorn Park in East Vail. The second is Aug. 12 at Donovan Pavilion. Each picnic will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. with free food and drink provided by the town on a first-come, first-served basis. The picnics provide residents an opportunity to offer comments and suggestions about community issues.
The picnic Tuesday at Bighorn Park will be hosted by the Vail Town Council and representatives from the public works department. Picnickers will hear information on the upcoming USA Pro Challenge Time Trial stage to be held in Vail Aug. 23 and “Love Vail,” the town’s public awareness campaign in support of the new recycling ordinance.
Joining the town council as hosts of the picnic at Donovan Pavilion Aug. 12 will be staff from the police, fire, community development, library and administration departments. Details on rebates and incentives for the community-wide recycling program as well as other town updates will be shared at this event.
In addition to the two neighborhood gatherings, residents are encouraged to share their ideas, concerns and suggestions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The town’s website at www.vailgov.com includes information on town issues and projects as well as email links and phone numbers for all departments.
