3-19-2: PURPOSE:
Within Boise's jurisdiction, there is a growing number and variety of public social events that significantly add to the vibrancy of the City. A few specific geographical locations within the City are used regularly as the sites for these special events. Some of these sites are of a nature and location that could accommodate the implementation of a temporary open container zone within those areas during special events. The City seeks to balance the public's safety and preserve those locations' commercial viability and character against the benefit of allowing alcohol open container zones. This chapter provides for the application and designation of sites as "festival blocks." Special event permit applicants within a designated festival block site may apply to have the area be an open container zone during the permitted special event. (Ord. 13-22, 3-29-2022)
