Meets 1st Tuesday of the month at 7 PM
The Recreation Committee is comprised of members from Richmond, Huntington, and Bolton. Our work is guided by the 2018 Town Report and we use it to determine areas of community importance to focus on. We also explore what other recreation departments are doing in the state and nationally to keep communities mentally and physically well in rural areas.
We provide support for events and programs and offer partnership to local groups and organizations. We also seek collaboration with other town committees that impact recreation users. For example, in partnership with the Richmond Free Library, we have made free snowshoe rentals available to the three communities.
We love to hear input from community members about areas of recreation that they are passionate about or ways we can better serve the communities of Richmond, Bolton, & Huntington. You may submit questions, comments, or concerns in the RICHMOND RECREATION COMMENT BOX
