Ms. Bailey noted comment #4 does not apply to this case.  Ms. Bailey noted she thought this comment needs to be on the Heritage Festival comments.

Major Faucett noted the Heritage Festival the dates for the Heritage Festival do not coincide with Reunion Weekend either.

Ms. Bailey noted Reunion weekend was this weekend.

Major Faucett and Ms. Bailey discussed barricading the streets for the event.

Ms. Bailey noted that the map she submitted was incorrect and that both sections of 11th Street would be blocked off with barricades on either side of New York Avenue but still allow traffic flow to continue down New York Avenue.

Mr. Nearing asked Major Faucett if he thought there would be any problems controlling pedestrians since there will be alcohol involved.

Ms. Bailey noted alcohol would be kept in a contained area but not crossing but she would be willing to hire a police officer for the traffic.

Major Faucett asked where the contained area was.

Ms. Bailey noted the contained area is in the barricaded area.  There will be a beverage station on one side of the street of 11th Street and a beverage station on the other side of 11th street

Major Faucett noted his comments indicate that if there is going to be alcohol, an officer would be needed and it will have to come out of the Main Street fund.  Major Faucett noted he didn’t have a major problem with the event and that his comments will depend on the size of the crowd. 

Major Faucett noted that barricades are shown on the map for Heritage.

Ms. Bailey noted that the Smoke “N” Blues and BBQ map shows where the Barricades will be.

Ms. Bailey noted that the two activities are totally separate.

Mr. Nearing asked Major Faucett if he thought there would be a problem with the traffic going back and forth.

Ms. Bailey noted traffic would not be allowed to cross over between the two sections.

Major Faucett noted he didn’t have a problem.

Ms. Bailey noted if the event grew, that perhaps there would be a different location in the future.  A map of the layout would be submitted and will obtain permission from the property and business owners to put a platform for a band where the properties are closed.  Ms. Bailey noted that they would like to put a VIP tent in Mr. Cooper’s lot. 

Mr. Nearing noted that Ms. Bailey needed to obtain permission from property and business owners, and then submit a revised drawing.

Ms. Bailey noted the Event was scheduled for November 15.  Ms. Bailey noted BBQ grills would be fired up the night before the Event.

Mr. Nearing reminded Ms. Bailey about the noise ordinance.

Ms. Bailey noted there was paperwork that had to be signed by each applicant.  There will be one fire extinguisher per each applicant.

PLANNING

CONDITIONS:

 

Mr. Howse noted in reading the conditions, it seems that some of the comments are the same comments before that were there before the work session.

 

1.                   The parking lot needs to be redesigned:

    1. The parking provided is inadequate in Phase two. Each phase should be able to stand without any further phases. Bringing some of the compact parking into phase one or two may be part a solution.

 

Mr. Nearing noted that the comments will be corrected.

 

    1. A landscape island along the east side of Phase 1 could be made larger so that no more than 10 spaces result without an island.

 

Mr. Howse noted the parking spaces were changed, per the work session and there are no more than 10 in any row. 

    1. Create a landscape island along the southwest corner of that parking lot.
    2. The two landscape islands will eliminate two parking spaces; the redesign of the site needs to bring them back.
