Title
Resolution to Approve Street Closure of Washington Street between Fletcher and Thayer Streets for the University of Michigan Go Blue Mix on Saturday, August 31, 2019 from 11:00 AM until 9:00 PM
Memorandum
The attached resolution is requesting approval to close Washington Street between Fletcher and Thayer Streets on Saturday, August 31, 2019 from 11:00 AM until 9:00 PM for the University of Michigan Go Blue Mix.

Go Blue Mix is a large, outdoor program on central campus as a part of the Welcome to Michigan schedule. An extension of the UMix Late Night program, Go Blue Mix will provide an alternative late-night programming opportunity for students during a high risk time (Saturday night). With each night game held at the Stadium, UM convenes a large planning committee to commit to providing alcohol-free events and opportunities for students, increasing its capacity to support student safety and health. This event was last held in 2016 and no issues were reported.

While this event is intended for University of Michigan students, since it is in public spaces, community members will be able to enjoy elements of the program (i.e. live music). Certain aspects will be reserved solely for students with valid UM ID (novelty activities, food from UM catering, etc).

It is the City of Ann Arbor Police policy to deny events held on game day weekends. The sponsoring unit, the University of Michigan Center for Campus Involvement, has stated that police presence will be handled by the UM Police Department.

Notification of the street closure will be through the City's website and GovDelivery, and resources through the University of Michigan no less than one week prior to the event.

The sponsor agrees to obtain all necessary permits, to provide evidence of proper liability insurance as required, to comply with all City and state regulations governing the use of the streets, and will reimburse the City for all event expenses.
