Title
Resolution to Approve Street Closings for Fool Moon - Friday, April 1, 2022 at 6:00 AM to Saturday, April 2, 2022 at 6:00 AM
Memorandum
Attached for your consideration is a resolution to approve the closing of the following streets, anticipating that downtown streets will not yet be closed for outdoor dining, for the Fool Moon special event on Friday, April 1, 2022 from 6:00 AM on Friday, April 1, 2022 to 6:00 AM on Saturday, April 2, 2022.

* Main Street from William to Washington
* Liberty Street from Ashley to Fourth Avenue

The event is being sponsored by WonderFool Productions, who is currently seeking co-sponsors. As per the attached Covid Safety Plan, the successful event held in 2021 will be mirrored in 2022. Public art making and installation experiences will be planned for safe participation in town, at home, and on the virtual event platform. Plans are designed to avoid creating a special event presence attracting large crowds at any central location.

This will be the second year the event will also be held at the Kerrytown Market.

The sponsor is requesting that the following streets be closed from Noon to Midnight on Friday, April 1, 2022:

* Main Street from William to Washington
* Liberty Street from Ashley to Fourth Avenue

The sponsor will coordinate the bagging of parking meters with the DDA and Republic Parking.

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 and Festifool/Fool Moon websites, and emails sent through the Main Street Area Association.

The event has been coordinated with all relevant City service areas for the purposes of traffic control and for the protection of the health and safety of the participants and the general public.
