Brattleboro has become known around the world for the handful of nudists who have strummed guitars in the Harmony Parking Lot and on Main Street, for a naked bicyclist and for a senior citizen from Arizona, who visited Vermont just to walk naked during Gallery Walk.

The emergency ordinance -- and its proposed permanent version -- wouldn't ban public nudity completely from Brattleboro, only along the Route 5 and Route 9 corridors.
