Residency is defined to mean a person's place of abode or domicile. That place designated by a person as his principle place of physical presence for the indefinite future to the exclusion of all others. 


Nothing kills a recreation program faster than those who wait until the last minute to register. There is a point where a program must be cancelled if there is insufficient registration. All programs require a level of scheduling, staffing and purchasing of equipment. So please register early. 


Refunds are made only if the Recreation Department is notified seven days in advance of the scheduled program, class or trip. Refunds are not given once a program has begun. Should a trip be cancelled or postponed due to inclement weather or any other circumstance, you will be refunded the full amount if you cannot attend the rescheduled date.
