Approve a Resolution approving Temporary Use Permit No. 04-18 with
conditions to allow the closure of City right-of-way for the staging of an
auto processional for one day, Sunday, June 5th between the hours of 9:00 am
and 11:30 am.
On April 13, 2004, the City Council approved an amendment to the code
section for Temporary Use Permits. The amended code provides that: “Any
Temporary Use requesting the closure of City right-of-way requires the
approval of the City Council, except those street closures permitted to be
exercised by the Chief of Police, City Engineer, and the Director of Public
Works as provided in Brentwood Municipal Code, Title 10 and other provisions
of City policy, regulations, and the Municipal code.”
On May 3, 2004, the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church submitted an application
to use City right-of-way located in the downtown to stage an auto
processional from the current church to the new church. Since the event
requires the closure of public right-of-way, a Temporary Use Permit is
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 staging area includes one street within the downtown. The
staging area will affect only the closure of one street.
The closure will allow up to one hundred automobiles to be staged in the
street during the church service. At the close of the service, participants
will occupy the vehicles within the staging area and exit in an orderly
fashion at the start of the dedicational procession.
This street is located within a Commercial, Office, Residential (COR) Zone.
The proposed street closure hours are:
Sunday 9:00 am to 11:30 am – close streets
It is staff’s opinion that this proposed event will have minimal impact upon
surrounding homes and businesses within the downtown. Businesses and
homeowners along First Street have been noticed of the closure.
Traffic will also be minimally impacted in the Zone. This event is expected
to draw two to three hundred participants during the course of the event.
The total cost of providing police services for the Immaculate Heart of Mary
street closure and procession has been estimated at $753.44 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 such events. Unless directed
otherwise by Council, police costs will be waived for this year's event as
