Pass a Resolution approving Temporary Use Permit No. 03-19 to allow
Brentwood Chamber of Commerce to use City owned property for the annual
Holiday Parade located within the downtown area and affecting the closure of
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 October 8, 2003, the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce submitted an
application to use City right-of-way located in the downtown to hold its
annual Holiday Parade on November 29, 2003, between the hours of 1:00 pm and
4:30 pm. Previously, the Chamber has been able to use the downtown streets
without 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 parade route includes several of the streets in the downtown.
The route will include First Street west of Birch Street, Pine Street
between First and Second Street, Second Street between Pine Street and Oak
Street, as well as staging areas on Birch Street and a portion of First
Street east of Birch Street.
The parade will consist of several hundred people proceeding on foot through
the downtown area. The parade will consist of automobiles, floats,
equestrians, members of the military, bands and scouts, several hundred
people all together, proceeding through the downtown. The parade formation
will occur along First Street, east of Birch Street as well as on Birch
Street north of First Street. The parade will start at the intersection of
Birch and First Streets.
This parade route is located within the Downtown and proceeds through
several zoning districts including the Central Business Zone (CB), a
Multi-family Residential Zone (R-3), and a Commercial, Office, Residential
The proposed parade hours are:
Saturday 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm – staging and setup
Saturday 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm – parade
It is staff’s opinion that this proposed parade will have a moderate
temporary impact upon surrounding businesses. Some areas of the downtown
will not be accessible to vehicular traffic for three hours. There have been
no complaints in past years from residents or business owners concerning
this particular function.
Traffic will also be moderately impacted in the downtown, as large portions
of downtown streets will be closed from 1:00 pm through 4:30 pm on Saturday,
November 29th. General parking is available in the City lot in front of City
Hall and along Oak Street west of Second Street (consisting of 84 stalls),
the two municipal lots on Brentwood Boulevard totaling 84 stalls, as well as
on-street parking throughout the downtown area not closed to traffic. City
Park will be the terminus where four portable restrooms will be on-hand.
There will also be two portable restrooms within the staging area. This
event is expected to draw five to eight hundred visitors to the parade and
the greater downtown area of Brentwood over the course of the event. The
Holiday Parade is designed to kick off the winter shopping season and will
expose the downtown to visitors that may not frequent the area.
The total cost of providing police services for the 2003 Brentwood Chamber
of Commerce Holiday Parade has been estimated at $4,550.00 by the Brentwood
Police Department. The police Department will deploy Reserve Officers, CSOs,
and Volunteers where appropriate to reduce personnel costs. Historically,
the city has waived the police costs for the event. Unless directed
otherwise by Council, police costs will be waived for this year's event as
