During the summer of 2019, public disorder on Elliot Street began to threaten elderly residents of the Samuel Elliot Apartments seeking to make their way to Main Street.
The disorder culminated late in the summer when one of the residents, walking slowly with the aid of a walker, was confronted by a group of individuals who blocked the sidewalk, assaulted her, and destroyed her cell phone.
I'm writing in appreciation of the beautiful flowers we have throughout downtown Brattleboro this summer! Our quality of life is higher because of these flowers. Many thanks to those who are responsible for them.
Downtown Brattleboro looks especially beautiful this fall, with the bright chrysanthemums in their pots all the way up and down Main Street! The business district is bright, welcoming, and unified - and we are all the better for it. Thank you to the powers that be in our town...
