Staff Summary: The Redevelopment Authority has allocated $10,000 in FY 2016-17 for special event equipment and infrastructure. The Parks and Recreation Department is requesting the funds to purchase chairs for the Community Center, which is a special event venue, and folding tables to be used in the Community Center and made available for rental for other special events.
4.D For Possible Action: To consider a request for a vendor cart to be located on McFadden Plaza adjacent to Mom & Pop’s Diner, located at 224 S. Carson Street. (Lee Plemel, email@example.com).
Staff Summary: Vendor carts may be permitted within the Downtown Mixed Use zoning district subject to the approval of the Redevelopment Authority Citizens Committee and subject to the requirements of the Carson City Municipal Code Development Standards, Division 1.11. Doug Cramer is proposing to operate “Pop’s Food Cart” on the south side of the existing Mom & Pop’s Diner, on a portion of McFadden Plaza, to serve various foods and beverages.
4.E For Possible Action: To make a recommendation to the Redevelopment Authority regarding an amendment to the Redevelopment Authority Policies and Procedures, Section 3.21, relating to the split of Redevelopment funding for “arts and culture” special events and other Redevelopment special events. (Lee Plemel, firstname.lastname@example.org).
Staff Summary: The Redevelopment Authority Policies and Procedures currently specifies that 40% of budgeted special event funding is allocated to arts and culture special events. The proposed amendment would eliminate the specific percentage to allow funds to be allocated to arts and culture special events each year independent of the amount of funding to other Redevelopment special events. Arts and culture special events include theatrical productions, music festivals or music event series involving coordination among multiple event sites or organized through an arts organization, and art displays.
