Yesterday the Terre Haute Board of Public Works and Safety approved the permit for the Blues At The Crossroads music festival this September.
The festival occupies some large portions of city streets downtown at 7th and Wabash.
Terre Haute attorney Mike Ellis had raised objections in the past because the event does charge admission and he claimed that the event blocked customers from getting to some of his buildings in the area.
As part of the approval the western boundary of the event will now stop at the school corporation parking lot so as not to block access to Center City which is a building that Ellis owns.
Some other measures will be taken to assure that any who may want to get to businesses will not have to pay a cover charge.
The event does have a sizable impact on the local economy.
Organizers say that it costs nearly $120,000 to put on the event.
