Title
Resolution to Approve the Closing of State Street from Monroe to Packard for the Slide the City Event on July 4, 2015
Memorandum
Attached for your consideration is a request from the sponsor, Slide the City, to close State Street from Monroe to Packard for the Slide the City event on July 4, 2015 from 4:00 AM until midnight. The actual event will start at approximately 11:00 AM and end at approximately 6:00 PM. The additional time will be used for set-up and take-down for the event.

Slide the City is a family fun day with the main attraction being a 1,000 foot water slide through the City. The timing of the event is such that this will be an added activity to the events already taking place on the 4th of July which include the Jaycees annual 4th of July Parade and the Firecracker 5K, which already close State Street from Washington to Monroe from 7:00 AM until 1:00 PM. There will be music and announcements beginning after 11:00 AM and ending at 6:00 PM. All impacted businesses and residents will be notified via flyers, print and social media, the City's website and GovDelivery. The applicant is working closely with the State Street and South University Street Associations.

The applicant has provided a "Slide the City 2015 Health Department Document" to describe how the water is used. As this is a new and very different event, the applicant will be available for questions at the City Council meeting.

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 street and will reimburse the City for all event expenses.
