RICHLAND BEAN BLOSSOM YOUTH SPORTS-PERMISSION TO BLOCK

                                   STREET-YOUTH FESTIVAL: GINNY LOWERS:

 

Ginny Lowers is here representing the Richland Bean Blossom Youth Sports and their treasure as well as their fund raising coordinator.  Last year they hosted their first annual Youth Sports Festival.  It went over pretty well and the kids had a good time.  They want to host the second annual one this year.  They are here for permission for that as well as block off part of the road from 8 to 5 for the entire day to ensure the safety of the kids who are crossing the street back and forth.

 

Mike Cornman said that short section is from like Turtleback Drive to Park Street?

Ginny said you actually go right in front of the fire station and you curve around, the part that curves around between the actual batting cages to the ball diamond across the street.

Mike Cornman said the same thing you did last year the short section? 

 

Ginny said right and we are doing that just so that there is a direct path back and forth because that is the T-ball field over there and there is going to be a lot of kids running back and forth.

 

Mike Cornman asked Ron McGlocklin if he had any problems with this request.

 

Ron asked if they are talking about the intersection of Ritter and Park?  Mike Cornman said yes and down to Turtleback.  Jay Humphrey said that last year they had that blocked but they could open it up in emergency situations for a fire truck or emergency vehicle.  Ron asked what is indicated in the yellow, right?  Ginny said they only place that will be blocked of is just where the corner starts to turn.  Mike Cornman said Turtleback Drive to Park and Ritter.  There was more discussion on this.

 

Ginny wanted permission to use the basketball courts.  Mike Cornman said they don’t belong to us but the best bet would be go to the school.

 

The fire chief had no problems with this.

 

Ginny said it is going to be May 1st with a rain date of May 8th.

 

Mike Cornman recommended to the Council that we approve the Richland Bean Blossom Youth Sports Festival roadblock that they are going to do on Turtleback Drive to the section of Park and Ritter Street on May 1st.  Patrick Stoffers so moved.  Gina Hawkins seconded.  Motion passed 4-0.
