Title
Resolution to Approve Street Closing for the NTI Block Party - Wednesday, July 30, 2014
Memorandum
Attached for your consideration is a resolution to approve the closing of S. Main Street between William Street and Liberty Street from 2:00 P.M. to 11:00 P.M. on Wednesday, July 30, 2014 to stage the NTI Block Party.

The National Training Institute (NTI) is a joint program between the National Electrical Contractors Association and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers to train qualified workers, and is perhaps the largest apprenticeship and training program of its kind. The National Joint Apprenticeship & Training Committee (NJATC) held its annual National Training Institute (NTI) in Knoxville, TN for 19 years until 2008. The NJATC is currently in its sixth year in Ann Arbor, and on the campus of the University of Michigan, and is committed to coming on an annual basis.

The Block Party, hosted by the Main Street Area Association in conjunction with the Ann Arbor Convention & Visitors Bureau, is intended to attract those associated with the NTI to the downtown area to experience the amenities and attractions that make Ann Arbor the perfect location to continue this program for years to come.

The sponsor agrees to obtain all necessary permits, to provide evidence of proper liability insurance as required, to comply with all City regulations governing the use of the streets and will reimburse the City for all event expenses.

Notification of the street closings will be provided through the City's website and also through communications made through the Main Street Area Association and the Ann Arbor Convention & Visitors Bureau.
