Jimmy’s Old Car Picnic organizers are not the only ones questioning why they got bumped from stricter permit regulations in Golden Gate Park.
This Thursday at the regular Rec and Park Commission, Tri-California Events Inc. will also appeal a decision to deny their permit for a new Triathlon at Alcatraz event on August 29.
The event would apparently require some major road closures along the Great Highway, running and biking trails in the park, and is right around the same time of Outside Lands and Sunday Streets.
However Rec and Park staff have recommended that commissioners approve the appeal so long the organizers modify their route and adhere to stricter guidelines of spacing out events next time they apply.
The department has yet to decide what to do about an appeal to denying Jimmy’s Old Car Picnic after 22 years.
