Body


BACKGROUND:
Agnes Pelton Society, a 501 c(3) charity, hosts its annual Historic Home, Block Party and Art Fest on Sunday, February 17, 2018 from 11 am to 3 pm that showcases the newly completed murals on Chuparosa Lane (alley between E and F Streets) as well as local artists in booths on F Street between Chuparosa Lane (alley) and Glenn Avenue. This will be the 9th year of this festival.
The annual event receives great fanfare from local residents and visitors coming in for Modernism Week. The City has been a sponsor for many of those nine years.


DISCUSSION:
This event requires a half-block of F Street to be closed to traffic. Besides Simeon Den and Peter Palladino's home on F Street in the proposed closed half-block of F Street, there are six other homes that would be affected by the road closure. The closure is needed for artists to set-up booths in the street in an effort to reduce the number of venues of the tour and reduce the need to drive from venue to venue throughout the Cove neighborhood. Only the historic homes in the lower cove will require attendees to traverse from venue to venue and those will be limited this year.
Staff recommends that if approved by council that the Agnes Pelton Society properly notify, via mail and door flier, the six neighbors that would be affected by the road closure with a minimum of a 72-hour notice.
Staff also recommends road barricades on F Street that can block a vehicle from crashing into a crowd. This can be done by placing parked cars at the entrances and exits or utilizing the City's water storage barriers.
Staff also recommends that this event have at least one ADA and one regular portable toilets for guests ...
