A proposed ordinance would seek to promote public safety by requiring registration, a submitted safety plan and cost recovery stipulations that protect the city from emergencies that may occur at events, a Dallas Police Department presentation given May 17 stated.
Dallas officials shared information on five public input meetings that will take place throughout the first two weeks of June seeking feedback on the ordinance from residents, businesses and promoters.
Two of the hour-long meetings will be held both online and in-person at Dallas City Hall, 1500 Marilla St., while the other three will be held only online. There is no requirement to sign up ahead of time to speak at the meetings. In addition, Spanish translation will be offered at the meetings.
Times for the meetings vary, and full details can be found here. A draft of the proposed ordinance can be reviewed here.
An update on the proposed ordinance is scheduled to be given in a June 13 public safety meeting.
