On agenda: 5/22/2017 Final action: 5/24/2017
Title: To authorize and direct the Director of Recreation and Parks to grant consent to SID Public Services Association to apply for permission to sell and provide wine sampling at the Pearl Market, Tuesdays and Fridays, June 2 - October 20; and to declare an emergency. ($0.00)

Explanation: To authorize and direct the Director of Recreation and Parks to grant consent to an organization to apply for permission to sell and provide sampling of wine at the following 2017 event: Pearl Market.

Background: This ordinance will grant permission to the following group to apply for a temporary liquor permit authorizing the sale and consumption of wine samples at a special event to be held during 2017:

1) SID Public Services Association for the Pearl Market, Tuesdays and Fridays, June 2 - October 20.

This organization wishes to sell and provide sampling of wine to eligible patrons on city streets and city property to be used for the event. In 2016 the Ohio General Assembly passed a law that allows Ohio wineries without a distributor to direct market/sell at farmers’ markets.

The City of Columbus, acting by and through its Director of Recreation and Parks, is required to grant approval to the organizer of this event so they may obtain the required permits from the Ohio Department of Commerce, Division of Liquor Control.

Principal Parties:
SID Public Services Association
23 N. 4th Street, Columbus, OH 43215
Adam Schroeder, Pearl Market Manager, 614-591-4559

Emergency Justification: The first day of the event is on June 2. The State of Ohio requires all events to file their application of temporary liquor permits at least 30 days in advance of an event.

Benefits to the Public: Allow streets to be the host site for an open-air farmers and general merchandise market.

Community Input Issues: This legislation has the support of the Capital Crossroads Special Improvement District that will benefit from its passage. Event coordinator will still need to secure street closure signatures from neighborhood property owners before closing streets.

Area(s) Affected: Capital Crossroads (...
