CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM
Meeting Date: October 14, 2003
Subject/Title: Temporary Use Permit No. 03-14 to allow the Immaculate Heart
of Mary Church the use of City owned property for their Fall Festival,
located within the downtown and effecting the closure of one street.
Submitted by: Community Development Department (Oshinsky/Nielsen)
Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager
Approve Temporary Use Permit No. 03-14 to allow for the use of City owned
property for the staging of the first annual Fall Festival sponsored by the
Immaculate Heart of Mary Church for one day, Saturday, October 18th between
the hours of 10:00 am and 6:00 pm.
On November 26, 2002, the City Council approved an amendment of the code
section for Temporary Use Permits. The amended code provides that: “City
sponsored and /or civic events including but not limited to Cornfest, fairs,
festivals, concerts, arts and crafts shows, the snow park, Halloween event,
downtown barbeque, and parades” require a TUP and Business License. Council
added provisions to this amendment that require: “Any Temporary Use proposed
on City property requires the approval of the City Council.”
On September 5, 2003, the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church submitted an
application to use City right-of-way located in the downtown to hold its
first annual Fall Festival. Previously, similar events have been able to use
the downtown streets without the applicant having to obtain a TUP. Since the
change in the ordinance, a Temporary Use Permit is required.
The criteria for approval, when evaluating a request for a TUP, includes
consideration of impacts on traffic, circulation, parking, visibility,
noise, harmful effects on adjoining property and any other relevant impacts
or considerations of the proposed use. The proposed use may be reasonably
conditioned to mitigate identified impacts or to ensure public health,
safety or welfare.
The proposed location is one block of First Street between Maple Street and
Pine Street in the downtown. The appropriate permit is being pursued through
the Police Department for the physical street closures.
The Fall Festival is expected to draw five hundred to a thousand people from
the community at large. There are proposed attractions in the right-of-way
for kids, as well as tables for eating, and an area for dancing and singing.
The street in front of the Brentwood Funeral Home is proposed for event
staff and disabled parking. Preparation work, largely food, for the festival
will take place on Church property while the festival itself will take place
largely along First Street between Maple and Pine Streets.
The proposed festival is located near the Downtown in a Commercial, Office,
Residential Zone (COR), allowing for mixed uses including residential,
commercial, retail, service, office, dining, and social activities not
usually permitted within a single-use zone.
The festival hours are:
Saturday 10:00am to 6:00 pm
It is staff’s opinion that this proposed parade will have minimal impact
upon surrounding businesses. Closing this section of First Street will not
impact the overall flow of traffic in the downtown. Parking will be
available along Maple and Pine Streets and in the municipal lots along
Brentwood Boulevard and Second Street. It should be noted that all Property
owners along this particular section of First Street have signed letters of
support for this festival and the street closure.
The total cost of providing police services for the 2003 Immaculate Heart of
Mary Fall Festival will be minimal. The police Department will deploy
Reserve Officers, CSOs, and Volunteers where appropriate to reduce personnel
