BROOKINGS — The Brookings City Council will look at a temporary alcohol permit for Downtown Sundown, which is making a comeback following a COVID-19 layoff last summer.  

The council will also hear another reading on medical cannabis in this week’s meeting, beginning at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Brookings City & County Government Center.

Downtown Sundown

“The Brookings Area Chamber Downtown Committee has employed a temporary alcohol permit to sponsor a set of occasions for Downtown at Sundown on the 300 block of Fifth Street and the 400 block of Main Avenue on July 22, July 29, Aug. 5, Aug. 12 and Aug. 19, 2021,” based on a attachment.

“All temporary alcohol licenses have to be approved by the City Council through utilization of a hearing. All documents have been registered with the town pertaining to insurance and other licensing conditions,” in accordance with this attachment.

The Downtown at Sundown event started at 2015 as a weekly concert together with sellers and actions. It’s run Thursdays for seven weeks each summer. At the beginning, it drew approximately 526 attendees per event, seven headlining circles entire, and also four food/alcohol sellers, according to the attachment.  

“This event has grown to a presence of 1,500 per event for five weeks with four food/alcohol sellers: Main Street Pub, Pints & Quarts, Wooden Legs Brewing, and Craft,” in line with this attachment.

The Brookings Area Chamber of Commerce has distributed maps of this new design for the function. The location will be changing slightly to the east. In years past it’s taken the 300 block of Fifth Street between Main and Third paths with the stage situated just east of Third Avenue.  

This year, the band stage will be located at the junction of Main Avenue and Fifth Street, (the post office ). Food and drink vendors will nevertheless be located at the 300 block of Fifth Street, but just the east . Vendors and patrons will be located near the stage at the 400 block of Main Avenue together with all the Kid Zone and actions at the southern end of the 400 block of Main Avenue.

Moving into the east and carrying another block provides the growing crowds more room. Possessing the stage in front of the post office can change the job of the band so the public is not looking into the setting sun in the next evening. Moving the majority of the stalls and actions to some north-south running road will permit the buildings around the west side to shade the road, rather than getting the warm summer sun beat down on the dark asphalt and everyone standing on it.  

The council will notice another reading on a temporary ordinance establishing procedures pertaining to licensing health cannabis institutions in Brookings.

“The City of Brookings has filed a temporary ordinance concerning the issuance of local health cannabis institution licenses or permits. The proposed ordinance is temporary while the town expects guidance in the South Dakota Department of Public Health on regulations and rules relevant to the licensing of medical cannabis centers,” in accordance with this attachment.

“Initiated Measure 26 (IM 26), that legalized medical cannabis from the State of South Dakota, gives that the South Dakota Department of Public Health shall set guidelines for medical cannabis institutions no more than Oct. 29, 2021. Because of the current absence of Department of Health standards and conditions, the city’s current regulations and controls might not satisfactorily address the special needs and impacts of health cannabis institutions,” according to a memo by Ryan Miller, town planner.

“The proposed ordinance is temporary while the town expects guidance in the South Dakota Department of Public Health on regulations and rules relevant to the licensing of medical cannabis centers. Since IM 26 comes with an execution date of July 1, 2021, this temporary ordinance would allow the town to deny any software such as medical cannabis facilities until now as the nation adopts rules and regulations for the licensing of medical cannabis facilities. In the meantime, the town continues to research zoning legislation for medical cannabis centers,” based on Miller’s memo.

City of Brookings to declare June LGBTQ+ Pride Month 

BROOKINGS — A proclamation declaring June LGBTQ+ Pride Month will be read at the June 22 Brookings City Council meeting.  

The proclamation contrasts with the town’s vision of a welcoming and inclusive community — encouraging all residents to”Bring Your Dreams.”

Each June, vibrant flags are flown for weekly at Brookings to celebrate Pride Month. The flags are a initiative of the Brookings Human Rights Commission (BHRC).

“BHRC was made to be able to fly the pride from June 4 through June 11 in support of Pride Month and to coincide with the Brookings Pride event,” BHRC member Jason Meusburger explained. “We appreciate the community’s support and dedication to raising our awareness and inclusion for our LGBTQI community to encourage equality in the Brookings area. With assistance from this lovely Brookings community, the Pride flags will be introduced annually to come. Thanks for your continued support.”

The art, which was added in 2019, is composed of a rainbow of colors gracing the sidewalk at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Fifth Street.  

The multicolored stripes, which are not painted but made from a thermoplastic inlay using a white border to define the edges, will last about five years and then be refreshed. The art is symbolic of this community’s dedication to inclusion and diversity, the City of Brookings press release says.  

Thus far, Brookings has been the only community in South Dakota to attain a perfect score.  

“This year also in the futurethe City of Brookings and the Human Rights Commission will continue efforts to achieve greater equality and improvement over the Brookings community,” the release says.
