EXHIBIT A

Excessive Conditional Use Permits issued by the City of Scottsdale and the Special Events Committee negatively impact the existing brick and mortar galleries and businesses in the downtown Arts District during prime season.

         

 

Examples:

Celebration of Fine Art 100 booths 75 days
Fine Art Expo 100 booths 75 days
Thunderbird Artists 100 booths 3 days
Scottsdale Art Festival 175 booths+ 3 days
5th Avenue Art Festival   4 days
Art Bridge Thursday varies 30 to 60 booths* 56 days
SouthBridge Sunday varies 30 to 60 booths** 56 days

+ 5th Avenue Arts Festival tent fee is $275

*Thursday booth cost $45 per event or $160 for four consecutive events

**Sunday booth cost $55 per event  or $200 for four consecutive events

…combine Thursday and Sundays  for $275 for four consecutive events

The CUP applications approved during prime season result in the reduction of foot traffic and subsequent revenue loss for hometown galleries.

 

Patrons of the Celebration of Fine Art and Fine Art Expo do not continue from the northern location of those temporary tents to experience the downtown galleries. Massive amounts of advertisement dollars are available to these two applicants because of reduced overhead expenses
