Resolution to Approve Street Closing for The Event on Main Special Event - Thursday, June 23, 2011
Memorandum
Attached for your consideration is a resolution to approve the closing of S. Main Street between William Street and Liberty Street from 6:00 A.M. on Thursday, June 23, 2011 to 2:00 A.M. on Friday, June 24, 2011 to stage The Event on Main special event.

This event is in it’s second year of a multi-year endeavor sponsored by the University of Michigan Health System’s Office of Medical Development with a goal to raise $1,000,000 over three years to support the construction of the new University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s and Women’s Hospital at the University of Michigan Health System. The new Hospital will provide highly specialized care to more women and children and will enhance groundbreaking research. It was planned to be held annually beginning in June, 2010 and culminate in the national grand opening gala in 2012.

The 2011 event for ticketed guests, scheduled for 6:30 P.M. to 11:00 P.M., will consist of hors d’oeuvers, desserts and cocktails in the “Main Stage” tent located on Main Street near William, dinner served inside Gratzi, the Chop House and Real Seafood, followed by a concert by top entertainers on the “Main Stage”. Plans are to also provide family-friendly free entertainment and activities for the public on Main Street near Liberty.

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.
