Mifflin residents and party goers will want to know that the vital paragraph comes at the very end of the report. It reads:
In the planning stages for this year's event, Central District Command advised stakeholders that only two options existed with respect to the future of the block party: Either improvements to the event were made to make it safer and to shift the focus of the event from alcohol consumption to music entertainment, or disband the event entirely. For the third consecutive year, attempts have been made through the issuance of street use permits and the implementation of sponsored music stages to shift the tide of this event and to no avail. There is little else that has not been tried, which leaves only the conclusion that an event of this size -- with its long standing focus on alcohol consumption -- in this particular neighborhood simply cannot continue.
