Recreation & Cultural Affairs Committee 4/11/2011 2A Forwarded to BCC with a favorable recommendation P
REPORT: Assistant County Attorney Rizo read the foregoing resolution into the record. Commissioner Gimenez explained the intent of the foregoing resolution. He noted that this resolution was before this committee because the current master plan for Crandon Park prohibited advertisement, which he supported. However, this particular resolution was unique because the Autism Walk was held at Crandon Park for so many years and the number of participants had increased from 5,000 to 20,000. Commissioner Gimenez said he believed it was necessary to advertise this event to ensure its continued success. Commissioner Heyman noted was hopeful that this resolution was supported unanimously and led to a policy change. She pointed out that advertising at charitable events was a way to promote the sponsors in exchange for the financial support. The Committee proceeded to vote on the foregoing resolution.
