I just talked to Chuck Arnold of the Downtowners, and he informed me that there is indeed a set limit to the street closures allowed, and that we were at that limit now. And that the reason the streets were closed on Friday this year is because two main events fell on the same weekend, and that it wouldn't happen again.
I told him that it might be a good idea to put that fact in the newsletter so that we all know. It must be my imagination that we've added events, or perhaps we had a bit of flux.
So, my call for a freeze is unnecessary, apparently.
