Commerce the use of City-owned property for their annual Holiday Parade,

Prepared by: Tim Nielsen, Assistant Planner
Submitted by: Howard Sword, Community Development Director
Approve Temporary Use Permit No. 05-21 to allow for the use of City-owned
property for the staging of the annual Holiday Parade sponsored by the
Brentwood Chamber of Commerce for one day, Saturday, November 19th between
the hours of 1:00 pm and 4:30 pm.
On April 13, 2005, 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 September 9, 2005, the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce submitted an
application to use City right-of-way located in the downtown to hold its
annual Holiday Parade. The zoning ordinance requires any temporary use
requesting the closure of City right-of-way to be approved by the City
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. 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 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
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 19th. General parking is available in the City lot in front of City
Hall and along Oak Street west of Second Street, the municipal parking lot
on Second Street, and the two municipal lots on Brentwood Boulevard, 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 2005 Chamber of Commerce
Holiday Parade has been estimated at $4,550.00 by the Brentwood Police
Department based upon past years. The police Department will deploy Reserve
Officers, CSOs, and Volunteers where appropriate to reduce personnel costs.
