Resolution to Approve Street Closings for the Ann Arbor Marathon Running Event - Sunday, March 24, 2019
Attached for your consideration is a resolution to approve the closing of certain streets for the Ann Arbor Marathon Running Event on Sunday, March 24, 2019 from 3:30 A.M. to 1:30 P.M.

The sponsor, CFC-Epic Races, LLC, is raising money through this event for the Ann Arbor Public Schools Education Foundation (AAPSEF). Additional recipients include Team Red White and Blue, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, The Kite Network, Ronald McDonald House of Ann Arbor, and SafeHouse.

The sponsor requests approval from the State of Michigan Liquor Control Commission for temporary sales, service and consumption of alcoholic beverages in the defined areas pursuant to the M.L.C.C. regulations.

The University of Michigan expressed objections to the event and a beer company being one of the sponsors of this event. Their concerns and staff's responses are attached. Meetings with City staff, University representatives, City Police and the applicant were recently held. Earlier meetings included the State Street District and South University Association. The current route and location of the beer tent are the result of these meetings.

The race is scheduled to begin with one start at 6:00 A.M. and the other at 7:30 A.M. and end by 1:30 P.M. to help bring the race to an earlier end. The only additional noise at 6:00 A.M. will be to start the race. The sponsor has requested to close the following streets between 3:30 A.M. and 1:30 P.M. and the streets will be reopened as soon as safely possible after participants have cleared the areas (many of these streets will occupy one lane only):
