Lake Eola Sunday Market Fee Waiver

Lake Eola Sunday Market, through a contract with the Downtown Development Board (DDB), has requested use of the International Bridge, International Plaza and Washington Street Cul-de-Sac areas at Lake Eola Park on a weekly basis throughout the 2014-2015 fiscal year. The areas requested will be utilized between the hours of 7am - 6pm on Sundays, to provide visitors high quality products and services. The total rental fee for FY14-15 is calculated at $123,750, which the Families, Parks and Recreation Department (FPR) wishes to waive.

FPR traditionally seeks City Council approval for fee waivers that exceed $50,000, and is thus seeking Council approval of this waiver. The Sunday Market has become a vibrant amenity, regularly heavily attended by residents, that increases positive utilization of the City's signature park. Additionally, the DDB has contributed to improvements at Lake Eola Park, including most recently the provision of matching funds ($12,500) for an Orange County Cultural Arts Facility Grant to purchase a new sound board for the Lake Eola Park Amphitheater, as well as the purchase of holiday decorations for the Park.

Fiscal & Efficiency Data: See attached.

Recommended Action:
Approve a fee waiver, in the amount of $123,750, for the Downtown Development Board (DDB) to use the International Bridge, International Plaza and Washington Street Cul-de-Sac areas at Lake Eola Park, on Sundays, for the purpose of the Sunday Market.
