Ann Arbor preps
f or 400,000 guests
BY AARON ALIZADEH
The city and University are mak-
ing final preparations for next
week's 30th annual Ann Arbor
Street Art Fair. Though the event is
expected to draw a crowd equal to
last year's 400,000, this year's Art
Fair marks several notable changes.
" Foremost is the city's recent or-
dinance prohibiting all open intoxi-
cants on city streets and property.
"The ordinance is a wise move in
terms of the Fair," said Ron Miller,
Director of the Washtenaw Council
for the Arts. "People are there to en-
joy the Fair in terms of art, it's not a
State Street Art Fair director
Karen Cass also agreed.
"I think there's been a lot of
concern in the community about
people drinking too much," said
Cass. "My concern as an Art Fair di-
rector is that I don't want anyone to
get hurt, and I therefore strongly
support the law. We want people to
enjoy themselves and not for things
to get out of hand."
Scott Habermeh, the manager of
Tice's liquor store said, "It's been
like that for a couple of years even
though they just passed the ordi-
nance. It's really nothing new."
Habermeh also feels that the or-
dinance will be used mainly against I
visibly intoxicated people and the
Captain Conn of the Ann Arbor
City Police Department said that he
hoped most Ann Arbor residents had
already become aware of the new city
ordinance. He also said that he hoped
out of town visitors who remained
unaware of the law would only have
to rely upon one encounter for com-
pliance. The maximum penalty for
breaking the ordinance is a $100 fine
and up to 30 days in jail.
The University's two construc-
tion sites, the North University
Street Arcade, and the east side of the t
West Engineering Building also rep-
resent potential congested areas for
the Art Fair. s ..
