Would this affect how open space and trails are maintained and improved?

The Town created a dedicated Parks and Open Space Department in 2022 and under direction from the Board of Trustees, they are taking a holistic approach to the long-term maintenance, expansion, and improvement of all outdoor recreation resources. By reducing limitations on the Open Space sales tax, Town staff could implement improvements outlined in community-driven planning initiatives, such as the Parks, Open Space and Trails Master Plan, as they are prioritized by the Community, not by what specific funds are available. Those plans call for continued expansions to the Town’s trails system as one of the highest priorities.
