For those events that require a street closure lasting more than 3 hours and/or that require barricades for traffic control:
The City requires applicants to provide advanced notification to all businesses and/or residents who will be directly impacted by the street closure. This requirement ensures that businesses and residents have the opportunity to attend the public hearing, inform their clients, and make alternative plans for access.
It will also be helpful to review the City's General Nuisance Ordinance (Title 12) and Offenses and Regulation Ordinance (Title 13) to ensure understanding and compliance.
