Busking approved in downtown core for summer trial

Starting Friday, you may be allowed to make money for showing off your miming skills, musical talents or juggling expertise to passersby in downtown Kincardine.

 

Council has paved the way for buskers to perform in the town’s downtown core, if approved by the municipality’s chief building official, Michele Barr.

 

Barr received a couple busking requests from residents recently. One wanted to let local musicians showcase their melodic muscle on the sidewalk outside the Rock Shop, on Queen Street across from Foodland, between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. this summer. Another musician asked to perform this Saturday to raise money as part of a school project.

 

The municipality’s building and planning committee recommended to council that it pass a bylaw okaying downtown busking this summer as long as it doesn’t interfere with pedestrian traffic, involve the use of an amplifier, or block patrons’ entrance to or exit from stores.

 

Because busking can vary widely, Barr suggested council give her the authority to review all requests on an individual basis.

 

“The only problem I can see is if someone sets up shop in front of a business that may not want them there,” said councillor Guy Anderson.

 

After a summer trial, from May 21 to Oct. 12 (Thanksgiving long weekend), Barr would review requests made and report back to the building and planning committee. If it decides the trial was a success, it could recommend to council to make the busking policy permanent.
