Muskegon City Commission: Agreement with Rebel Road organizers on this week’s agenda

MUSKEGON, MI – After a successful inaugural bikers’ event, Rebel Road plans to stick around downtown Muskegon for a while.

MUSKEGON, MI – After a successful inaugural motorcycle event, Rebel Road plans to stick around downtown Muskegon for a while.

The Muskegon City Commission is scheduled to vote on a five-year agreement to allow organizers of Rebel Road to close West Western Avenue. The commission meets at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 11.

Rebel Road replaced the old Steel Horse Alley that had been setup on West Western Avenue by Bike Time. Bike Time, which moved to Fruitport Township this year, had had a five-year agreement with the city to close West Western that city officials are asking the city commission to rescind. Rebel Road and Bike Time were held at the same time this year.

Organized by the Child Abuse Council in conjunction with downtown businesses, Rebel Road had beverage tents with entertainment, vendors and various contests. It also included popular downtown motorcycle parking along West Western.

Rebel Road is requesting it be allowed to close Western between Terrace and Eighth streets, along with its side streets. It also is seeking to use city equipment – such as picnic tables, trash cans and bleachers – without rental fees provided it provides its own labor to set up and return it.

The agreement is essentially the same as the one the city had with Bike Time.
