Ms. Carl asked what was going on with New York Avenue.  She noted concern that she was going to need to relocate things planned for that area and asked whether or not it would be open.

 

Mr. Luthie noted that he was not involved with the project and he was not sure what the plans were.

Ms. Carl noted that there had been one change since the application had been submitted.  She noted that they were considering having a bike show on Sunday that would be located on either 9th or 12th Street.

 

Fire Marshall Ennis asked where on 9th and 12th Streets the show would be located and Ms. Carl noted that they were looking at the area between Pennsylvania and Massachusetts Avenues.

 

Fire Marshall Ennis noted that would not be allowed because there was no other rout for emergency vehicles to use to go east from the Fire Department on Massachusetts Avenue.

 

Possible alternate sites for the bike show were discussed.

 

Mr. Nearing noted that additional insurance coverage would be needed to cover the bike show.

 

The use of 9th Street was again discussed.

 

Major Faucett noted that he would need a copy of a revised layout showing the location of the bike show and any changes made due to the relocation of attractions planned for New York Avenue north of 10th Street.

 

After further discussion of the bike show location it was decided that the best location would be on 12th Street.

 

Ms. Carl asked if the Police Department could assist with parking this year to prevent the problems that occurred last year with the St. Cloud Hotel parking lot.

 

Major Faucett noted that the best way to handle that situation was for the applicant to approach the owner to see if something could be worked out.
