Adopt a Resolution approving the closure of streets for the use of City-owned property for the staging of the 2008 Multi-Cultural Celebration by the City of Brentwood Parks and Recreation Department on June 13, 2008.
On April 13, 2004, the City Council approved Ordinance 779 amending section 17.850 of the Brentwood Municipal Code relating to temporary use permits. The amended code provides that under 17.850.006 Exemptions: The provisions of this chapter shall not apply to arts and crafts fairs, health and safety fairs, business fairs, athletic field rentals, sport tournaments and contests, block parties, food and clothing giveaways, park dedications, music recitals, art shows and receptions, City building and gazebo rentals, community meetings and other similar uses that typically occur at community facilities. All City-managed or co-managed events are exempt from the requirements of obtaining a Temporary Use Permit. These exemptions shall apply to all of the events listed above, except as noted in 17.850.005(12).
On June 26, 2007 by Resolution 2007-132 City Council approved to Award Business License Tax Grant Monies to the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce and the City of Brentwood.
The proposed closure of street use is reasonably conditioned to mitigate identified impacts or to ensure public health, safety or welfare.
The 2008 Multi-Cultural Celebration is sponsored by the City of Brentwood Parks and Recreation Department and will kick off this year’s “Starry Night” concert series. Approximately three hundred people will participate at this event that will take place in City Park and in the parking lot located between Liberty High School and the Community Center. The parking lot will be used as a staging area for an equestrian show.
The Parks and Recreation Department is recommending the closure of Maple Street, the Library Parking lot (Maple Street between Liberty High School and the Community Center) and the access road on Maple Street leading out to Oak Street. It is the Parks and Recreation Department’s belief that this will have a moderate impact on the Liberty and the Library parking areas. Twelve general barricades, two “Road Closed” signs, and one “Road Closed Ahead” sign will be needed for these areas.
The total cost of providing police services for the 2008 Multi-Cultural Celebration has been estimated at $473.20 by the Brentwood Police Department. The costs for services were budgeted in the 2007/08 Operating Budget. The Police Department will deploy Reserve Officers, Community Service Officers, and Volunteers where appropriate to reduce personnel costs. There is no charge for the signs, as they belong to City of Brentwood. All other expenses are covered by the Business License Tax City Grant Fiscal Year 07/08.
