2011 Applications to be denied for out of district
WHEREAS, Community Board Five has received the following 10 applications for street festivals:
WHEREAS, Community Board Five has passed a resolution requiring that all sponsoring organizations of street fairs be indigenous to Community Board Five; and
WHEREAS, Community Board Five has further defined that requirement as "having a physical street address within Community Board Five"; and
WHEREAS, Over the past several years, SAPO has used best efforts to relocated street fairs so that events take place within the board where the sponsoring entity holds its business address; and
WHEREAS, The sponsors for the above-mentioned applications are not located within Community Board Five, nor do they have specific jurisdiction over the district; and
WHEREAS, Community Board Five acknowledges the great contributions many of these organizations have made to New York City and Community Board Five; and
WHEREAS, In order to be fair and impartial, Community Board Five is attempting to judge applications in a non-subjective manner so as not to consider the merits of the organization itself, but rather on tangible facts such as business address of organization and impact on the community, therefore be it
RESOLVED, That Community Board Five recommends denial of the above-mentioned applications.
The above resolution passed by a vote of 28 in favor; 0 opposed; 2 abstaining.
