May 2021 NEWFOUNDLAKELIFE.COM Page 7 Bristol Approves Opening of Town BeachesCommunity
 The Select Board met on April 2nd and decided that the Town Beaches would be opened starting June 15th. The beaches will be staffed by attendants this year as usual. Annual permits will be sold and guest permits will be sold, but no day passes will be sold this year. This means that parking is limited to Bristol taxpayers and guests (guests and family members of property owners).
Purchasing your passes. This year, you can only purchase beach passes at the Town Office. We will be setting up staff at the right side entrance of the Town Office at 5 School Street. Start dates will be late May TBA. Watch this page and the Town's Facebook page for more infor- mation. There will be no trans- actions at the beaches. If you do not have a pass when you arrive at the beaches, you will be asked to go to the Town Office and get a pass first. Annual Passes are $10.00 and Guest Passes are $50.00 per week.
Portapotties will be at the beaches and will not be cleaned daily, so use at your own risk. Picnic tables will not be put out this year.
There will be lots of signage about keeping space between each other. Beach Attendants
will be educating and working with attendees to follow guide- lines provided by the CDC and State.
Regarding parking, there are parking spaces on Shore Drive for Avery-Crouse Beach and in a parking lot along Cummings Beach. No parking is allowed on unmarked areas of Shore Drive and no parking is allowed on West Shore Road. Parking rules will be strictly enforced through ticketing and towing. Fines are $80.00 to start.
Furniture or other personal property left unattended will be removed and brought to the Police Department. If furni- ture or other personal property is left overnight, it will be re- moved from the beach and can be claimed at the Police Depart- ment.
All other rules of the Town Beach Ordinance apply. Most importantly, this only works if we all work together by being courteous, patient and respect- ful. Personal responsibility is the name of the game. Beach Attendants are people. Treat them like you would your mom, dad, brother, sister, friend, etc. The same goes for conduct to- ward your fellow attendees. If the beaches come to the point where people are continually
unruly and pose a danger to themselves and others, the Se- lect Board will revisit the open- ing of the beaches.
A reminder that the beaches are pack in and pack out. That means bring back with you what you took in. No masks and gloves on the ground, no trash
of other kinds.
The public has two munici-
pal beaches to enjoy in Bristol. Avery-Crouse Beach is located off Shore Drive at the “foot of the lake,” while Cummings Beach offers a more rustic op- tion located off West Shore Road. There is no lifeguard
on duty at either beach at any time. Beach Attendants staff the beaches June 15 to Labor Day Weekend. Parking during this time is for beach patrons only in designated spaces only.
Beach hours are 7:00 am to 11:00 pm. No parking 11:00 pm to 7:00 am.
