Title
Resolution to Approve Change of Route and Closed Streets for the 2019 Ann Arbor Marathon on Sunday, March 24, 2019
Memorandum
Attached for your approval is a resolution to approve a change of route for the 2019 Ann Arbor Marathon, currently scheduled to close streets from 4:00 AM until 1:30 PM on March 24, 2019. While the event ends at 1:30 PM, the organizer requests to close the Fifth from Hill to Madison until 3:00 PM. In response to residents' concerns regarding the intrusion into the neighborhood, the applicant has revised the route to lessen the impact of the event and will also ensure that residents will have access to their homes when it is safe. Council approved the Marathon at R-19-088 but was unaware there was no resident feedback at that time. The organizer has worked with the Neighborhood Association Chair to find a solution. The Beer Tent will be on Fifth Avenue and not within the neighborhood. While this event has occurred annually, and last year presented no major concerns, this year the beginning of the route was modified to address University concerns and the Resolution was submitted to Council with no opportunity for community impact. The revised changes occur at the start and finish of the race. The impacted streets are noted below. The streets will open as soon as safely possible and any slow walkers/runners will be directed to sidewalks as the race thins:

* Hill from Brown to State
* Fifth from Hill to Madison
* Brown from Hoover to Hill
* South Division from Hoover to Hill
