ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — After hearing complaints from some downtown business owners, Annapolis officials plan to consider requiring council approval for special events at City Dock.

The Baltimore Sun reports that Annapolis Mayor Joshua J. Cohen and Aldermen Richard E. Israel and Ross H. Arnett III plan to introduce a resolution at Monday night’s City Council meeting.

Last summer, some downtown business owners criticized the city for not better policing festivals in the city’s historic district.

They said loud music and a lack of parking for patrons can hurt their sales.

Groups would have to apply to hold events with an expected attendance of 1,000 or more per day, or meet several other standards.
