Resolution to Approve Street Closing for the NTI Block Party - Wednesday, July 31, 2019 from Noon to Midnight
Attached for your consideration is a resolution to approve the closing of S. Main Street between William Street and Liberty Street on Wednesday, July 31, 2019 from noon to midnight to stage the NTI Block Party. The actual event will take place from 6:00 P.M. until 10:00 P.M. The additional time will be utilized for set-up and breakdown of the event. Amplified music by either a band or DJ will be played during the actual time of the event.

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 11th 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 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, GovDelivery and also through communications made through the Ann Arbor Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, MLive and flyers sent to county-wide participating hotels, restaurants and merchants.
