Parks board reviews Special Events Ordinance

Wednesday, August 27, 2014 by Gene Davis

The Austin Parks and Recreation Board heard a presentation Tuesday evening on revisions made to the proposed Special Events Ordinance. Under the revisions, neighborhood block parties would not fall under the ordinance. Instead, block parties would require a separate permitting process that would be easier to get than a permit under the Special Events Ordinance. Most of the other revisions discussed  involved definition changes. The Parks and Recreation Board had little discussion on the item.
