Due to current New York State orders, businesses that specialize in exercise, such as fitness, yoga, dance, and exercise classes have been unable to open their buildings for use.
At the July 20, 2020 regularly scheduled meeting of the Clifton Park Town Board, Supervisor Barrett led a discussion regarding options to assist local businesses affected by the State orders. The Town Board unanimously decided to allow Clifton Park businesses to operate immediately on outdoor public property. Clifton Park businesses that would like to hold outdoor classes must receive a permit through the Town’s normal application process. The permit is free for classes of less than twenty people. Classes of twenty or more will continue to pay a nominal permit fee. Classes will be limited to fifty attendees.
