OCTOBER 15, 2016 COMPETITION JURY DAY
AUGUST 24, 2016 PARK TOUR AND COMMUNITY FORUM
A Notice of Preparation (NOP) for the draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was prepared for the St. James Park Capital Vision and Levitt Pavilion. The NOP was available for public comment between May 25, 2016 and June 25, 2016.
Project Description Clarification: The NOP states that the Levitt Pavilion is "an approximately 7,000-spectator outdoor music and performance venue." The 7,000 population value references the approximate total occupancy of St. James Park, not the anticipated attendance at a Levitt event. The seating area for the Levitt Pavilion will be designed to hold a maximum occupancy of 5,000 attendees; however, the average attendance at Levitt concerts in other cities is typically between 1,000 - 2,500 people per concert. The City will not schedule concurrent events in the park during a Levitt Pavilion concert.
