The Cities of Urbana and Champaign Extend Suspension of Special Event Permits
Today Urbana Mayor Diane Wolfe Marlin and Champaign Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen each signed Emergency Orders which continue to suspend the issuance of special event permits in each city through September 7, 2020. Special event permits are generally required for parades, residential block events, and other types of activities that involve large gatherings of people on public property, including streets, sidewalks, parkways, or municipally-owned parking lots. This was necessitated by the Governor’s continuing restrictions on large gatherings due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In accordance with 24 CFR 91.05(c)(2) and subpart B of the federal regulations relative to citizen participation for Community Planning and Development Programs and applicable waivers made available to those requirements through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), the City of Urbana is making an amendment to the Consolidated Plan Annual Action Plan FY 2019/2020.
Public Comment Period and Process:
This Consolidated Plan amendment is available for a 7-day public review and comment period from May 14, 2020 to May 21, 2020. Citizens wishing to submit written comments during the public review and comment period may mail them, postmarked no later than May 21, 2020, to the following:
