Comments: The event description indicated that food trucks and other nonprofits would be allowed to sell at the event. As always, food truck vendors shall hold current 2019 Colorado Retail Food licenses. Tent vendors selling food for immediate consumption shall hold a ‘2019 Larimer County Health Dept-issued Temporary Event License’. Vendors that operate under the Cottage Food Act do not require a local license but must follow all applicable criteria in the Act and shall only sell approved foods that are nonpotentially hazardous (shelf-stable), already packaged and labeled indicating that food is made in a home kitchen that is not inspected.

5 portable restrooms are proposed throughout the event site. At least one handicap accessible restroom shall be provided for the guests in the waiting area.

Please provide trash receptacles at the restrooms, the entrances of the woods and maze, and vendor area. It is also recommended that trash receptacles be placed in the parking areas as guests may consume foods as they return to their vehicles or in their vehicles on cold nights.

The condition of the parking lot is not known for the month of October, but it is assumed that parking areas are a combination of vegetated and exposed soil. If weather has not provided moisture before each night of the event, dust control practices should be implemented to minimize dust and reduce impact on neighboring residences and guests. This includes posting signs to limit vehicles to very slow speeds like 10 mph, and light water spraying of the parking lots to minimize dust.
