The second request came from the REES Theatre who wants to block off Michigan Street/State Road 17 from LaPorte to Garro Street on October 1st from noon until 10 p.m. for a community event. The REES will be hosting a fundraising street dinner with some entertainment on the street for up to 250 people and they will attend the first performance in the theatre that evening.
The Rees has already secured an INDOT permit to close the street.
The Board of Public Works and Safety unanimously approved the Rees Theatre to close Michigan Street for a fundraising event on October 1st.
