Mayor Kiernan McManus thanked city staff, businesses, and the community for cautiously completing Phase 1 and planning well for Phases 2 and beyond.

"A great deal of that is going to depend on us doing our part not only to keep ourselves safe but those around us safe," Mayor McManus said. "The guidelines continue: maintain social distancing, wear a face covering or mask when you're out in public and be respectful of what other people are going through in their lives. It's important to understand the reason we're taking these precautions is not for just for us individually, but also for those around us."

Since announcing Phase 2 on Tuesday, Parks and Recreation staff have received dozens of calls and emails from community members looking for news and information.

Employees are working to prepare to open more activities for kids and adults.

"We are excited to be able to offer more parks and recreation opportunities to the Boulder City community," said Roger Hall, director of parks and recreation.
