AGENDA ITEM NO. 22
Meeting Date: May 9, 2006
Subject/Title: Approve temporary use of Agency-owned property for CornFest
2006 parking from July 7through July 9, 2006
Prepared by: Gina Rozenski, Redevelopment Manager
Submitted by: Howard Sword, Community Development Director
Approve temporary use of Agency-owned property for CornFest 2006 parking
from July 7 through July 9, 2006.
For the last several years, the Redevelopment Agency has permitted the
Liberty High School sports organizations to use the parcel located on the
southeast corner of Oak Street and Walnut Boulevard for a parking lot for
the CornFest. For these sports organizations, this event is the single
largest fundraiser of the year to support their activities.
The Chamber of Commerce CornFest Board and Delta Wrestling Club have again
requested the use of Agency-owned property for parking purposes.
Historically, the property located at the corner of Oak and Walnut Streets
has been designated and used for parking. However, during the preparation
for Walnut Boulevard widening, burrowing owls were found on this site and
mitigation measures must be taken to protect the owls during their nesting
season from June to August. Consequently, the parcel located at the corner
of Oak and Walnut Streets cannot be used this year for parking. The parcel
at 1000 Central Boulevard, at the northeast corner of Central and Walnut
Boulevards, will be used as the alternative site for parking this year, in
conjunction with the routine safety measures and efforts of the Brentwood
The Redevelopment Agency will be added as additional insured in the
insurance coverage purchased by the Cornfest Board for the event, and the
Board will indemnify the Redevelopment Agency against all claims, liability
and loss resulting directly or indirectly from operations and activities on
the property. The Board has further agreed to leave the property in a clean
and orderly condition upon completion of the festival.
