Whereas, based on the input of the MBRO Task Force and various department representatives, the attached MBRO Policy sets forth the rules and regulations governing sponsorship and/or commercial advertising opportunities on designated City Assets.

Section 1. Attached hereto as Exhibit A is the City's Market Based Revenue Opportunity Program Policy, which authorizes sponsorship and/or commercial advertising opportunities on designated City Assets. No MBRO Agreement will be approved or executed until comprehensive Design Criteria Standards have been developed in conjunction with input from community partners involved with parks, open spaces, and design. The Design Criteria Standards will be included as an appendix to the Policy.
