Title
Resolution to Approve Street Closings for Sonic Lunch - Thursdays, June 9, June 16, July 14 and August 25, 2022
Memorandum
Attached for your consideration is a request from the Bank of Ann Arbor, sponsor of Sonic Lunch, to close Liberty Street between South Fifth and Division Streets on Thursdays, June 9, June 16, July 14 and August 25, 2022 from 6:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. Sonic Lunch has provided musical entertainment in Liberty Plaza since 2007. This annual event has allowed many in the community to have lunch in the Plaza while listening to local talent. The sponsor is working on its lineup and each of the four performances will likely create large crowds. The sponsor has asked for a block of Liberty Street to be closed to safely accommodate those crowds that may spill over into the streets on those days.

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.

Notification of the street closings will be provided through the City's website, electronic notification via GovDelivery and sponsor efforts with restaurant partners, radio, social media and posting of flyers.

The events have been coordinated with all relevant City service areas for the purpose of traffic control and for the protection of the health and safety of the participants and the general public.
