WHEREAS, the City of Cotati produces the annual Cotati Kids Day Festival, traditionally held in La Plaza Park, and Parade; and


WHEREAS, California Vehicle Code Section 21101(e) authorizes temporary street closures where certain conditions exist; and


WHEREAS, it will be necessary to temporarily close certain streets, as described in the Exhibits attached to facilitate these events; and


WHEREAS the closure is necessary for the safety and protection of persons who are to use that portion or portions of the street(s) during the temporary closing; and


WHEREAS, the Chief of Police of the City of Cotati will arrange for temporary street closure and traffic re-routing, which would minimize the traffic hazard conditions and allow for orderly movement of traffic; and


WHEREAS, the Chief of Police will contact the Rancho Adobe Fire Protection District, ambulance service providers, bus service providers, and others who may need ingress, egress, or the ability to traverse the affected area and will reasonably provide for their needs; and
