City extends closure of all facilities to the public through May 8
The City of Brighton will extend its temporary closure of all city buildings to the public through at least May 8. City officials are currently establishing plans for a measured and methodical phased approach to reopening buildings based on guidelines from the state, county, and the public health community. Tri-County Health Department, which covers Adams, Douglas and Arapahoe counties, is studying current trends and will be reviewing the need to extend the stay at home order for two weeks until May 8 for specific locations that are still experiencing high numbers of people sick with COVID-19. They announced yesterday that a decision will be made by Sunday, April 26 on most appropriate steps to be taken to begin to slowly reopen local businesses.
City facilities have been closed since mid-March and many city employees are telecommuting. As such, city operations will continue but visitors will not be allowed in the buildings. This schedule is subject to change, as the city continues to evaluate information from our local and state partners.
The following buildings will continue to be closed to the public:
Brighton City Hall, 500 S. 4th Ave.
Historic City Hall, 22 S. 4th Ave.
Brighton Recreation Center, 555 N. 11th Ave.
Eagle View Adult Center, 1150 Prairie Center Parkway
Armory Performing Arts Center, 300 Strong St.
The Brighton Police Department remains open. Essential public safety services will continue and measures are in place to continue non-emergency operations.
