City Council Agenda Item No. 10

Meeting Date: June 11, 2002

Subject/Title: Closure of Certain Streets to Facilitate the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Cornfest

Submitted by: Brian Strock, Police Lieutenant

Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager


RECOMMENDATION 

Adoption of Resolution authorizing the closure of certain streets and temporarily establishing no parking restrictions and tow away zones in order to facilitate the Chamber of Commerce’s Cornfest 2002 to held July 12, 13, and 14, 2002.

PREVIOUS ACTION

Historically, the City has approved sponsorship and has authorized the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce to hold the Cornfest since 1992.

BACKGROUND

The Brentwood Chamber of Commerce is requesting the closure of certain streets as noted on the attached Resolution for Cornfest 2002. The Chamber of Commerce has sponsored the event for nine years. 

This year the Cornfest would be open to the public Friday, July 12, 2002 between the hours of 5:00 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., Saturday, July 13, 2002 between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 11:30 p.m., and Sunday, July 14, 2002 between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.

Greg Robinson is the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce Chairperson for Cornfest 2002.

The Pyrotechnical Show is planned for Saturday, July 13, 2002 at about 9:30 p.m. The Cornfest Committee will work with the Liberty Union High School District on the logistics. The Cornfest Committee has agreed to provide security officers to assist the Police Department in securing the campus.

As in previous years, Cornfest 2002 will encompass a little over one city block with focus around City Park. Entrances to the event are planned for Oak Street at Diablo Alley and Second Street south of Brentwood Blvd. The Chamber Cornfest Committee estimates that attendance will once again exceed 30,000 people over the three day period. The Chamber will use portable chain link fencing in conjunction with existing fencing and buildings to establish the event grounds. This allows the Chamber to control the overall operation of the event. The Chamber Cornfest Committee will obtain general liability insurance in addition to obtaining all the necessary permits required to hold this event. 

As in the past, the Chamber Cornfest Committee has requested the use of the public parking lot on Brentwood Blvd., and the city owned dirt lot at Oak Street and Walnut Blvd. The Chamber uses these lots along with other private property lots, to raise funds for specific sports groups.

FISCAL IMPACT 

The total cost of providing police services for the 2001 Cornfest was $29,825.19. The Chamber of Commerce will re-imburse the City for police services. The Police Department will deploy Reserve Officers, Community Service Officers, BACUP volunteers and Explorers where appropriate, to reduce personnel costs.
