Title
Resolution to Approve Street Closings for the 2014 Ann Arbor Art Fairs - July 15, 2014 at 7:00 A.M. Through July 20, 2014 at 12:00 P.M.
Memorandum
The 2014 Ann Arbor Art Fairs are scheduled for July 16-19, 2014. This resolution is for the street closings and related services provided to the sponsors of this annual event. The event is sponsored by five separate organizations, each covering separate but adjacent portions of downtown Ann Arbor. These five areas form the “fair” and are perceived as a single event.

The following are the fees for the 2014 fairs:

Ann Arbor Street Art Fair $ 7,912.00
South University Area Association 13,274.00
State Street Art Fair 20,428.00
Michigan Guild/MSAA 15,927.00
Washtenaw Non-Profits 300.00

The fees were calculated by estimating the cost to the City to handle the event and assessing each group a charge based on their percentage of the total right-of-way being closed.

Each organization will be providing insurance in accordance with the City’s requirements for use of the public right-of-way.

In addition, the Washtenaw Non-Profits are requesting that fee be retained at the 1997 fee schedule ($300.00) for their organization.
