Staff Summary: The Redevelopment Plan adopted by the Carson City Board of Supervisors provides that a purpose of the Plan is to "encourage and assist in providing 'people oriented areas' in the Downtown for daytime and evening special events and promotional activities," and "establish the highest level of recreational opportunity for residents and visitors of all age levels." Based upon previous years, the 15-week Curry Street Promenade, including the Saturday Morning Farmers' Market and related family activities along Curry Street and at the Brewery Arts Center and Summer Concerts 2010; music for all ages, attracts thousands to our Downtown during times that are otherwise quiet and inactive. The increased foot traffic generated by the Curry Street Promenade within this "people oriented area" has a direct impact on the success of many small businesses and cultural facilities throughout the area. Thus, there is a causal connection between this redevelopment effort and the need for the expenses. Finally, this funding is incidental to overall cost of implementing the redevelopment plan. The action requested of the RDA is to recommend to the Board of Supervisors the approval of this expenditure.
