TITLE
Recommendation to authorize City Manager to execute a Revocable Permit granting the Grand Prix Association of Long Beach permission to occupy and use certain areas for parking and hospitality during the staging of the 2012 Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. (District 2)

DISCUSSION
On April 13 through 15, 2012, the 38th Annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach will take place on the streets of Long Beach.

Hospitality areas will be established at the Rainbow Lagoon and Marina Green area. These are the same areas granted under the permit last year.

Health and Human Services and Fire Department personnel will be present during all days of the Long Beach Grand Prix and will perform continual inspections of the permitted areas.
