We intend to host a wedding on August 17, 2019. The invitation list includes 200 people, so we anticipate that not all of them will come, but we're giving 200 as the maximum just to be safe. The entire event will consist of a wedding ceremony at 4:30 with a reception to follow. We have informed the couple that the event will need to done by 11:00, so they need to end the reception by 10:30 at the latest. The couple is renting a 60 X 40 tent to hold their festivities. No road are affected other than that the guests will drive to our property. The couple is encouraging car pooling due to the wedding being 10 miles outside of town. Due to this fact and that the guest list includes children, we expect an average of 3 people per car which comes out to 67 cars. Our daughter was married on our property 5 years ago with guest attendance of 300 people and parking was done easily. We have a parking plan and will inform the parking attendants of the plan and flow. Please see the included sketch.

The couple are renting porta-potties for restrooms from Gallegos Sanitation. These will be located on the south end of the tent, as shown in the sketch. We have informed them they need at least 4 toilets and one hand washing station.

They are bringing bottled water for guests to drink and we've informed them that they should plan on guests each drinking at least 4 bottles of water each.
In addition to bottled water, the couple is having their reception dinner catered by a local company and they're planning on providing their own alcohol to toast with. They will not charge money for the alcohol. This will all be served within the tent.

We don't have a method to ensure that the maximum number of guests isn't exceeded, but we're guessing there won't be more than the guest list and that the number of people will go down as guests leave throughout the evening.

There will be a DJ at the reception. We will be there to monitor the volume and keep it a very conservative level, complying with Larimer County Noise Ordinance.

In regard to the expected impact on our land and on surrounding properties:

As already mentioned, we hosted out daughter's wedding 5 years ago. There truly was no impact on our land. We have hosted a handful of weddings since then, and still, no impact. We expect the same again. We will provide ample trash cans for their trash and will ensure that guests do not leave the designated
